Seasoned home buyers and first time home buyers have something in common: It may take a while to find your home.
In fact it could take months. According to the Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers, a report compiled by the National Association of Realtors® (NAR), the average home buyer spends twelve weeks or almost three months in their home search and considered at least ten homes. In Hawaii, that time is often much longer due to the pent up housing demand and lack of properties in the the median price point upward of $700,000, - especially on Oahu.
While that may seem like a short length of time to some, most home buyers are anxious to move the process along. Working with a seasoned, local real estate agent can help you to do just that.
The benefits of using your locally experienced neighborhood agent as a resource are multiple, as outlined below.
Experience can be expensive, and not all Honolulu agents are created equal. Seasoned experts have trade secrets and strategies to get your offer accepted in a multiple offer situation. It's important to have confidence in your agents integrity, industry relationships, knowledge base, financing resources, and have access to key professionals that can make or break your deal.
