Learn The Secrets To Finding Homes For Sale In Bend Even When You Think Homes Can’t Be Found..

During the last year many home buyers have been trying to find Bend homes for sale and their home search has been difficult because, when we are dealing with a Real Estate Market that has a tight inventory finding a home can be difficult because, dozens of other home buyers can be competing to buy the same homes, at the same times.

Although finding a Bend for sale during a tight Real Estate market can be difficult, it’s not impossible if you follow these simple tips:

Check Out Expired Listings

Many home buyers may not be familiar with the terms “expired” or “withdrawn” listings but these listings can be like Gold because, they are listings that were formally active but for whatever reason the listing expired or the seller decided to withdraw their listing from the Real Estate market.

A home buyer can have their Realtor contact the owners of these Bend Homes for Sale to see if the owners are still interested in selling because, many times a seller will let their listing expire if they tried selling their home but for whatever reason they didn’t receive any offers.

Take a Look at Rentals

Did you know that checking out rental listings can be like finding gold at the end of the rainbow? That’s right, you also want to look for Rental listings because, many times the home will be owned by an owner who had to move out of town, or out of state, and they are renting their home until they eventually decide to sell.

You can save the homeowner time and money by contacting them now, checking out their home and then having your Realtor make an offer to the owner if you feel that the home would be just right for you and your family.

Are You Selling Your Home To A Millennial Or Empty Nester?

2013 has been a great year for home sales in Bend Oregon and as we move into the fall months many homeowners who are planning on selling their homes are encountering interest in their homes from empty-nesters (parents whose children have grown and moved out of their house) and millennials (people born after 1982) but few homebuyers know what to expect from either group of homebuyers since each group has different needs and expectations.

Get To Know Millennials

If a millennial shows up at your open house with their parents or relative is that you should pay as much attention to the parent or relative, as you should to the millennial because, the parent or relative may be the one who will be loaning the millennial the down payment money to obtain the loan for purchasing your home.

It’s also important to remember that when your Realtor lists your home, the listing should highlight all of the technological advances that your home has like: wiring for audio, visual, internet and plenty of space to work from home since most millennials are technologically “savvy” and are looking for the perfect home that will fit “their” lifestyle.

What Are Empty Nesters Looking For?

Empty nesters are looking for homes that offer them many multi-purposes. For example: a bedroom that has plenty of space for a home office, a living room that can also be used for a game room or a garage with plenty of space for a shop.

When marketing a home to empty nesters it’s also important to remember that as empty nesters age, they might not have the same physical abilities as they did when they were younger, so it’s also important to promote attractions that are within walking distance, or close to public transportation, so they can go places without having to drive or rely on others.
