Lake Ray Hubbard Life

Have you experienced the Insanity of "Black Friday" Shopping...for a House!

What?!? Black Friday for home shopping?!? Yup, you read right & that's why I had to share this great post from Bryan Robertson in Los Altos, CA.  Though he's writing for his local area I can say the same is true for us in the Dallas/Ft Worth area! 

If you are a buyer looking for Homes for Sale in the Dallas Ft Worth Metroplex or Lake Ray Hubbard area, then this coming weekend is a great time to get out and check out all the deals.  There are some awesome DOORBUSTERS out there right now!

If you want to search for houses that are currently on the market in your desired areas, you can search directly on my SamIAmHouses website that feeds directly from the Multiple Listing Service & gives you the most up to date information.  If you would like some help, have any questions or would like to set up a private appointment to see a home this weekend just give me a call or send me an email - I'd be ever so happy to help!

I've done the "Black Friday" thing - getting up at 2AM to stand in line, freezing my butt off, waiting for a "deal" that I never ended up getting.  How about Black Friday for home buying?  Are buyers willing to head out on Friday morning shopping for awesome real estate deals?  I certainly hope so!

For the savvy home buyer, this is a great time of year to snap up a great deal on a home.  While inventory levels are low all over Silicon Valley and especially in Los Altos, there are still some very nice homes that qualify as doorbusters.  If you see a home you like, make an offer.  Unlike Best Buy or Kohls, home buyers can negotiate a sweet deal on a home and, depending on how they're financing, be moved in by Christmas.

I've done open houses on the weekend following Thanksgiving.  For REALTORS, its' a great time to be out meeting prospective buyers.  Rain or shine, they come out to look because they're dedicated, serious shoppers looking for that awesome deal that can only be found at this time of year.  Sellers are just waiting to see that offer wrapped up and under the tree so they can start the New Year with a "SOLD" sign out front.

My advice for home buyers in any town around Silicon Valley is...get out and get yourself a great home at a great price.  Now is the time!  Carpe Domus!  Seize that great Black Friday home deal you've been looking for all year.  For real estate agents, don't slow down!  Engage your buyers and help them find that ideal home to start 2012 with.
