2023 is officially upon us, and with the new year comes a new housing market.
So, the question is, how do you navigate this new housing market? Or, in other words, if you want to successfully buy or sell a home in 2023, what do you need to know?
A recent video from realtor.com outlined must-know tips for buying or selling a home in 2023, including:
- Connect with a real estate agent. The right real estate agent can be a huge asset to your home search or sale of your house. If you’re thinking about buying or selling, do your research and get in touch with an experienced agent in your area. They can help you understand the market and put together a game plan to successfully sell your home and/or find the property of your dreams.
- Get your finances prepared. If you’re applying for a mortgage, you’ll want to get your finances in order before you submit your application. Do your research to find out what you need to do to qualify for a loan and what documentation you’ll need to submit with your application—and then take the necessary steps to meet those qualifications and get your paperwork together.
- Adjust your expectations. If you’re selling your home, keep in mind that today’s market isn’t the same as it was a few years ago. Many buyers are feeling unsure about the economy—and if you want to successfully sell your home, it’s important to adjust your expectations and be willing to compromise.
