Buying a home this spring was not for the faint of heart. Our team represented many clients who were competing withs sometimes 10-20 other offers, most waiving all contingencies, all going significantly over the asking price, sometimes by $100,000 or more.
But don’t be discouraged! Shane has access to unique off-market opportunities and knows the strategies and terms it takes to win. Of course it varies by location and price point but we are seeing a subtle change in buying power as these challenging conditions ease heading into the summer months.

These buyers paid for a pre-inspection of the property to help them get comfortable waiving the home inspection contingency. It’s not always possible but a strategic way to find some peace of mind in a competitive multiple offer situation.
