If your plans for the summer include buying a home in South King County, you could be in for a few twists and turns--especially if you're competing for a home in a "red hot" seller's market. Many communities across the country are experiencing a seller's market. Essentially, what this means in real estate is that the demand of homes is larger than the supply of homes for sale.
Now, please don't misunderstand--it certainly won't be impossible to buy your dream home, but you need to have a plan in place to compete with other home buyers in your area. To help you get your plan in place, use these tips from our team at SheriGoldman.com.
When you're ready to begin your search for a home in South King County, start the process by choosing one or two neighborhoods you want to live in and then scope out the available homes for sale in those zip codes. Not only does starting with the neighborhood streamline your house hunt, it also spares you the heartache of falling in love with a property that's located in a part of town that's far from the amenities you enjoy every single day.
