This is often a stressful experience. The good news is I have some very helpful important bidding tips you can use. By integrating these ideas into your approach, you could be on your way to obtaining the real estate you want in Breckenridge.

Read the Market

As your Realtor, I’ll certainly guide you on how to determine the home’s worth. Unfortunately if you try to perform this research solely online, you’ll find that there are no scientific equations for properly sticking a price on a piece of real estate. I’ll bring an extensive track record of buying and selling in Breckenridge will help flesh out some of the research you can do online, and determining what neighboring homes have sold for in the recent past is essential for understanding how a seller has listed a particular home.

Some people price their property too high so having a ballpark figure for the vicinity is crucial. It will give you an edge when it comes to evaluating how a home is priced and determining your next move.

Specifically, it’s important to look at comparable homes that have sold within the last 6 months. In basic terms, you need to see how homes of a similar size and with similar features have sold in order to get an accurate read on the property you wish to purchase.

Learn about the Seller

Besides understanding the neighborhood market, you want to figure out the seller. It’s important to learn their motivations for putting the house on the market. Has the house been listed for a while? Do the sellers still reside in the property or are they living somewhere else now?

If the sellers have left, chances are they’re paying two mortgages. Therefore, they are probably motivated to sell before their finances get too tight. This could be a great time to make a lower bid so that you can get the property at a more reasonable cost. 

Talk to the Neighbors

Sometimes the best source of information about a certain area is surrounding neighbors. They could actually know more than local government offices because they live on the street you’re considering for your next property.

See what these residents say about the home you want to buy, the current owners, recent crimes and potential construction in the area. You’ll get a better picture of the neighborhood from the people who already call the area home.
