The spring season is in full swing here in Washington! With so many people in the area looking to buy a new home, many have asked us how quickly they have to move upon selling their current home. 

When it comes to planning to get out of your home, you need to figure out how long it's going to take to sell your current home. We figure that out based on the location and price range of your property. Using those two things, we can tell you how long it will likely take to sell your home. 

Let's assume it takes, say, 45 days to sell your home. Once you have accepted an offer, it takes 30-45 days before the deal can close. On the contract you'll see a closing date, and you typically need to be out of the house by 9pm on that day. As soon as your deed records, we give the keys over to the new buyers. It sounds like a lot, but we make the whole process quite easy! 

If you would like expert assistance when trying to time your move in Washington, give us a call or shoot us an email. We would love to help you accomplish your moving goals in 2015!

The spring real estate season is finally here, so today we thought we would share some tips on how you can put together a winning offer! 

If you fail to prepare before looking for homes, you will fail to win. An agent will help you determine the right price to put on an offer based on the demand for the home, how long it has been on the market, and what the true value of the home is. 

Another important factor when putting together a winning offer is the closing date. The sooner you can close, the better! If you need financing, you need to get a pre-approval letter if you want to close in a timely manner. We have some preferred lenders who can save you money on fees if you're interested! 

Make your offer as clean as possible. In order to do this, you need to remove as many contingencies as you can. If you have to sell a home before you buy one, it's not as good an offer as one that doesn't have that stipulation. You can also find ways to reduce your home inspection timeline to make your offer cleaner. 

Lastly, another way to make your offer more attractive is to increase the earnest money deposit! 

We know many ways to make your offer stand out. We're skilled at putting winning offers together and would love to help you. Give us a call or shoot us a quick email for the assistance you deserve! We would love to help you get your dream home!
