How to Stand Out as a Lexington MA Home Buyer

As we move further into summer, the temperatures aren’t the only thing picking up! The number of Lexington MA residents planning to buy a new home is rising— as it tends to do during these warmer months! But how can you stand out? 

Grab a pen and paper and make yourself a checklist to ensure you’re on the right track to buy a home. Here are a few tips to give you that homebuyer edge over the others this year:

Clean Your Finances

After you spring cleaned your home this year, it’s time to turn to your finances. To be pro-active, you can get pre-approved by your lender. The pre-approval process is extensive and involves paperwork to detail your income and assets. This letter of approval offers peace of mind that you’re serious about buying.

Work with the Seller

Think about it— when you’re competing with other buyers, the best thing you can do is to work with the seller. Be flexible! There are likely a number of buyers in Lexington MA real estate who are set on dates, numbers, and come packaged with contingencies. Show that you are willing to work with the seller on the home sale puts you ahead of other buyers who may have the purchase contingent upon their own home sale. 

Be Quick

Found a home in the Lexington MA that you love? One that meets all of your wants and needs? You may want to act fast. Other homebuyers may have started the process and love the home as much as you do. Remember, sometimes an accepted offer can come down to a matter of minutes between buyers.

I'd be glad to help you find your dream home this year! I've helped numerous other buyers find the perfect property to call home and would love to assist you in doing the same!
