Are you planning to enter the real estate market this year?
Hi, I’m Tanja Odzak, Our East Bay Home brokered by eXp Realty… and I sell homes in Oakland, Berkeley, and the East Bay on both sides of the Caldecott tunnel.
Suppose you are considering entering the market as a buyer. In that case, it is important to understand today’s market and define your goals. This knowledge will help bring your homeownership vision to reality. With current inflation impacting the economy, being mindful of your spending is critical. Danielle Hale, Chief Economist at Realtor.com, said “The key to making a good decision in this challenging housing market is to be laser-focused on what you need now and in the years ahead so that you can stay in your home long enough that buying is a sound financial decision.”
With that said, here are a couple of key questions to ask yourself. What is motivating me to buy? Your needs may have changed in your current space, or you may no longer want to rent.
What does my next home look like? Knowing your exact wants and needs will help you stay within budget and not overspend.
Am I financially ready to buy? This is the most important question. You need to have a clear understanding of your budget and savings before you get too far into the process. As always, it is vital to have a trusted professional, like myself, that will guide you through the process. Please feel free to contact me with any questions so I can help you make an informative decision in today’s market.
And if you’re thinking about selling, ask me about my tiered home selling plans where you get to pick which real estate services you want and the fee you pay… Most of the them offering my super duper digital marketing that… no one else does in our area. I’m Tanja and I sell homes. I offer simplified and transparent choices!
