Happy Mountain Home Buyer

Happy Mountain Home Buyer

My goal for my clients at Real Estate of Winter Park is that weeks, months and even years after purchasing property, they are feeling happy with their purchase. Not to say needs don't change, and buyers won't be in the market for something that better suits their current needs, years later. However, my buyers  know they didn't miss out on their perfect mountain home and  they didn't pay too much. 

Purchase contentment is a tall order but not impossible in today's mountain home market of mosh pit bidding.  How do I assist my buyers in avoiding buyer's remorse? These simple steps will help each of you avoid the pitfalls in a seller's market.

  1. Determine your absolute "must haves"and the why creating those "must haves." For example if one of your "must haves" is a garage to store your mountain bikes, skis camping equipment, outdoor sports gear, you may consider homes with a large storage area as well. 

  2. Solidify your top dollar. When mountain home properties are closing for oodles over asking price, sometimes buyers can feel pressured to extend their purchase offer beyond their comfort, leading to being strapped for cash each month. When you're sure of your comfortable top dollar, each month you'll be congratulating yourself on being a smart buyer.

  3. Prepare yourself to have a top qualifying contract offer.

    • pre-qualification lender letter

    • verification of funds letter

Because properties are often going very quickly, you will feel less rushed when many of your decisions are already made. Then the decisions that will be property specific will be easier to make, thus leading to a better decision that you feel good about in the future. Mountain living is a dream for many of us. Let me help you reach the summit of living by making sure you're happy with your mountain home purchase.
