If you have found yourself searching endlessly for your next home in the Prescott Arizona area...we are here to help! Insider scoop can be a huge benefit when house hunting in the Prescott and the Prescott Valley communities. Below are some great real estate tips to get you ahead of the game and in a new home!

PARTNER WITH THE BEST REAL ESTATE AGENT!  We've said it before but it bears repeating...finding the best real estate team to partner with to find your dream home is the #1 priority when house hunting! An experienced agent knows the BEST neighborhoods in the area, the most up-to-date information about local real estate prices and always has YOUR best interest as their top priority. Plus, they will make sure that the home passes all inspections and will negotiate on your behalf. You can leave all your worries to them.


LOOK FOR FOUNDATION FLAWS! It can be easy to be wowed by a home when at a showing, and many times buyers overlook creaky, cracked floors when they are staring at a beautifully updated kitchen. Be smart and hire a home inspector to get a detailed examination of the home, which will save you from costly expenses down the road.


BE STRATEGIC IN A HOT MARKET! It is incredibly tough to house hunt in a seller's market! Gain an advantage over the competition by writing a personal note to the seller, and ask your agent to get involved in social media to share your needs and get the scoop on properties from other agents.


GET THE INSIDE SCOOP! Sometimes you have to become a detective. Visit garage sales in your dream neighborhood and ask the homeowner questions while you shop, or simply start up a conversation with a neighbor out watering their lawn. Those conversations can go a long way!


PRICING PSYCHOLOGY! Ready to make an offer in a competitive market? Don’t leave a ‘5’ or ‘0’ at the end of a price. Go one number over ‘5’ or ‘0’ to be the highest bid by just a tad more.


BE LIKEABLE! When sellers are attached to their home, they will typically want to sell to someone they like. Personalize your seller letter by looking around the home for common interests with the seller. Also, consider taking a photo of yourself in front of the home you are making an offer on. This allows the seller to visualize you in their home. These small connections can work wonders!


ALWAYS KEEP AN OPEN MIND! Just because someone older lived in the home, don’t rule it out. Seniors typically take much better care of their homes, and you can always remodel!
