Jacksonville First Time Buyers

Be careful what you wish for! I predict that we're going to have an amazing number of first time buyers entering this market in the next 2 weeks! Are you prepared?

First time buyers are the funnest, and the most challenging clients I've ever worked with!! Never a dull moment. They are smart, they're internet savvy, they have already looked at a LOT of houses on Realtor.com and other sites and they are READY TO GO!

We are under a very tight deadline. We must have a contract signed, sealed and delivered no later than April 30th. That seems so far away right now--it's not! After getting the deal done, we can close as late as June 30th.

In this market, the first timers are all looking in the same price range. I am starting to see multiple offers on homes already! Are you ready to get educated on how the process works? Some of my first timers are confused and have lots of questions.

Multiple offers and homes sold above the asking price will be here this Spring! I predict this will become the norm rather than the exception. Homes priced right will SELL in this market!

I'm living that very situation as we speak. I continue to get referrals from the first timers I helped fourth quarter of last year. The homes that we looked at in November and December are now Pending or Sold. Time is of the essence! Please be aware of the deadline and call me! If you are a first timer sitting on the fence--it's time to "jump"!

What a great time to be a REALTOR. This is what we do best. Match buyers with homes that will enrich their lives and families for many years to come. I love my job!!

Put me to work for YOU!
