Tony Asks… How do I find the right house to buy when the good ones sell so quickly?

First, make sure you have your financing lined up before you start shopping for a new home.

Buyers are snatching up houses quickly in the Denver area even though the average price of single-family detached homes reached a record high in May and continues trending upward. In some cases, buyers are engaging in bidding wars for good properties.

So, here’s my advice:

  • Work with an energetic realtor who will take the initiative to help you identify suitable houses as soon as they hit the market.
  • Don’t be rash, but be ready to make an offer if you see a house you really like.
  • Have your financing lined up in advance so you know you qualify. In today’s market, sellers won’t wait if you’re not ready with an offer they know will stand up.
