Move-Up Buyer Advantages

Posted on by

What is the biggest opportunity in the Fresno/Clovis housing market right now! It is the move-up buyer! Hi I’m John Stone with The Stones Real Estate Team at Guarantee Real Estate.

Why does the move-up buyer have an advantage when they sell and buy?

It is simple supply and demand. There are many more buyers than homes for sale under $350,000… and many more homes than buyers for homes over $450,000. To put that into perspective from an inventory standpoint, there is less than 2-months-supply of inventory for homes under $350… and there is 5-to-8-months-supply of inventory for homes over $450.

The move-up seller has the opportunity to get top-dollar when they sell, and negotiate a great deal when they buy! So… for the first time in a long time the move-up buyer has an advantage when they sell… And buy!

If you’re considering moving up to the home of your dreams… this is the perfect time to do so!

REM #76 | Open Houses

Posted on by

Perusing real estate listings can be nothing less than addictive. We’ve all spent time browsing the internet, ogling homes for sale that we didn’t intend—or couldn’t afford—to buy. It’s fun!

But would you ever hop in the car and do the same – in person?

This is Linda Hergenrader with Guarantee Real Estate… and, regardless of whether buying or selling is in your near future, there are many benefits to attending open houses.

I mean, here’s a chance to really get a grip on what you can expect to find… within your budget. 

…but even if you don’t find your dream home, you might meet your dream agent. What better way to interview candidates than by seeing them in action at an open house?

You’ll also get a real feel for any neighborhood you visit, while learning about potential neighbors, and how you might fit in.

And maybe most importantly, learn about your wants and needs, by seeing a variety of layouts… and the amenities that catch your eye. You just might be surprised!

I hope to see you… at an open house this weekend 😊.


Reviewing Your Purchase Agreement | REM #74

Posted on by

The purchase agreement contains important information that maps out how a transaction should go.

I’m David Sheppard, Sales Manager at Guarantee Real Estate, with some important things to consider when reviewing that agreement.

Whether it’s your first time buying or selling a home, or if you’ve bought and sold many homes over the years… you may be surprised by some of the terms within the purchase agreement.

Contingency periods, for example, are a vital part of a purchse and are what give buyers and sellers a way out if needed… and also specify how much time a buyer has to line up inspections, appraisals, loan approval, replacement home contingencies and more.

Agent selection is key; they will need to understand the wants and needs of the buyer and seller to better guide you in making the strongest offer possible; price is not always the most important term to a seller. So knowing what the seller needs in order to move on can help ensure a much better buying experience.
