Infographic showcases highlights from the 2016 report

It’s good news in the real estate market, according to the latest National Association of Realtors 2016 Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers.

First-time homebuyers are re-emerging. Getting a mortgage has become easier with less money required for down payments. Homes are selling faster than they have in the past few years. And while technology has changed the way people shop for and sell homes, the role of the real estate agent remains as strong as ever.

Here’s a more in-depth look at these results.*

    It can be complicated at first sight, but I would be pleased to explain step-by-step how to proceed.

    1. There is no charge to the buyer for the Realtor’s work on your behalf. This includes showing suitable properties, assisting in the pre-approval process, writing offers, advice, negotiation etc.
    2. Once the offer has been accepted, the Realtor arranges the home inspections and sets up all the various arrangements including the settlement itself.
    3. I have a whole team committed to assisting you – including the loan officer, home inspector, termite and bugs inspector, settlement attorney and whoever else might be needed to assist us in the home purchase process.
