What are 3 proven ways Military buyers can have amazing success with a VA loan in this crazy market?
Bryan Vogt here! For almost two decades I have worked with hundreds and hundreds of military buyers, and I can tell you this market is none like I or any other agent has seen. Having said that though I believe it’s up to the agents to help find solutions for our clients instead of how far too many agents are throwing up their hands and saying nothing can be done for our veterans when buying!
With that said here are 3 proven ways, VA buyers are having great success buying homes in this crazy market!
- Even though it may seem that every home has multiple offers and sells in days. The simple fact is there are more than a few homes out there that don’t sell as soon as they hit the market! Maybe they’re still on the market after 2 weeks or maybe up to a month. These can be great homes to buy! However, Even though they have been on the market a little longer. In most cases, you still should plan on paying full price. But chances are good if you act fast, you won’t have competition and you will win the day.
- Consider opening up your areas of search. Mascoutah O’Fallon Shiloh was a hot market before the housing shortage started. And now they’re even hotter if that’s possible. By expanding your searches to cities like Belleville, Fairview, and Collinsville to name a few. You will probably be looking at getting more bang for your buck in your home than you would in hotter markets. And a good chance you will have more buying power at a lower price point Often in these markets there is not as much competition but if there is. The type of loan is a factor but so is price and veterans will be in a better position to consider offering over asking and still staying within their budget to get their home!
- Look to buy what you like and learn to love it. The home may not be in pristine condition and needs some love. Maybe it has a bonus room instead of a third or fourth bedroom and the location is a little further from the base or maybe a lot further than you would like. The good news is that chances are there will be little or no competition and that will allow you to win out in your new home!
And even though at the Bryan Vogt group we do everything possible to get the right home for our military friends. Just in case that doesn’t happen. We are the only group in the metro-east that offers a Military Protection Plan. Buy a home through the Bryan Vogt Group and if YOU Are Not Completely Satisfied within 6 Months, “WE’LL SELL IT FOR FREE!” so you can buy the home that you really want!
