Tips for Buying a Home in a Seller's Market
If you’re buying a home in Aspen and we happen to be in a seller’s market, don’t worry – you can still make it through with the home of your dreams (and without paying a fortune over asking price).

Tips for Buying a Home in a Seller’s Market

Here’s what you need to do to successfully buy a home in a seller’s market:

  • Get preapproved
  • Act quickly
  • Write a note to the seller

Here’s a closer look at each.

#1. Get preapproved

A preapproval means that your lender has verified your ability to afford a home loan for a specific amount. It requires you to submit documentation that backs up your financial claims, which means it can show the seller that you’re serious – and that you’ll qualify to buy the home.

#2. Act quickly

You can’t wait too long before you make an offer in a seller’s market. The nature of a seller’s market says that you have competition from other buyers – and if you don’t make an offer, they will.

#3. Write a note to the seller

Adding a personal note to the seller can help your offer get accepted. Naturally, there are no guarantees about this – but when you tell the seller what you love about the home and that you’ll take care of it for years to come, you can tug on his or her heart strings a bit.
