Tips to Buy Bacolod City HomeJan 26th, 2009 | By b2ng | Category: Real Estate & Properties
You will want to find out what the correct price range you can afford before going out to look at Bacolod City homes. You will not want to waste your house hunting time by looking at and making offers on houses that you can’t afford. You will have more offers turned down if you are looking for houses out of your price range. If a house is out of your price range you will not be able to make an offer that the seller thinks is reasonable. You also don’t want to fall in love with a home only to be disappointed when the seller doesn’t accept your offer.
You are going to have to consider the market in the area when making your offer on the metro Bacolod home. If it is buyer’s market the seller will probably be willing to go down on the asking price, which means that you can afford a house that is in a slightly higher price range. If it is locally a seller’s market you can expect to pay the listed price as well as the requested down payment.
Your real estate agent should be able to furnish you with a sales history of the past six months in the metro Bacolod area you are interested in. Are the houses going up in prices or going down? If the houses are going down you can probably look at houses that are just a little higher than your price range and make an offer that is affordable to you. A decline in housing pricing indicates that the area is experiencing buyer’s market and the seller may be interested in getting rid of the property before prices fall even more.
In order to make an offer that is more likely to be accepted by the seller, you will want to figure out what the sellers’ motivation is. The real estate agent might not disclose this to you. They have guidelines that they must abide by when it comes to information of the seller. Some will talk, but it isn’t always proper.
Motivated sellers will be more willing to go down on the price of the house if they are: desperate for money, getting married, moving because of their job or someone who has recently purchased another home. Look out for these and other signs that the seller might be interested in lowering the price on the home.
Figuring out the price you can afford and the price to offer on a Bacolod City home should not be difficult. Look at your financial avenues including savings, investments and financing from the bank. When you have figured out how much you can afford to purchase a home, start looking around in the neighborhoods you are interested in. Figure out what kind of market these neighborhoods are experiencing and ask your real estate agent to show you houses that are just under your price range if it is a seller’s market and just above your price range if it is a buyer’s market. Remember to always keep in mind the seller’s motivation to sell the home and factor that into your decision when placing an offer. With a little thoughtfulness you can find a home in Bacolod City that is in your price range.
