Our Advice For 2024

Since we're out and about daily, we understand the current environment. Here are a few things to keep in mind for the upcoming year.

  1. Analyze the market: Review plenty of inventory before deciding on a property to purchase.
  2. Trust your agent: Work with an agent you can trust. Why? Right now, some properties are selling much faster than others. Your agent needs to be able to recognize killer opportunities.
  3. Explore rate buydowns: Some sellers are offering rate buydowns in the Greater Phoenix area. And this is a good thing, as they're not being offered (as much) in some other markets.
  4. Act on well-priced properties: If a home is priced right? Or if the seller is offering solid concessions? Don't fear writing an offer.
  5. Recognize market vitality: The local market is not dead. Plenty of properties are selling. Make sure to keep this in mind.
