How to Buy a Home this Summer

Buy a Home
While we are in one of the most competitive times for home buying, it is crucial to go into the process fully prepared. Corken + Company has been in the Denver area for over 20 years. Our team can provide you with all of the resources you need to buy your dream home. The average home is only on the market for 20 days or less. During this time it is important to follow a few tips to make the process easier:


Less Choices:
Let’s face it, inventory is at lower levels than usual. This means there are less houses to choose from and multiple offers being the norm. Make sure to work with an experienced agent who knows the properties in your area that will be a good fit. This will help you know which ones are off the market and ones that are about to be on the market.


Be Flexible:
In a tight market it may take longer to secure a home. Try not to get too attached too early in the home search. Allow for possible temporary accommodations if the search takes longer than you thought.


Best Foot Forward:
You never get another attempt at a first impression. Be prepared to make your best offer the first time. This is why it is important to work with an experienced agent who can help you navigate this process.


Show me the Money:
Have your pre-approval and proof of funds ready to go. If you are getting a mortgage it is a good idea to get pre-approved by an underwriter before starting the home search.


We know the market can be intimidating right now, but with the right agent by your side and these excellent tips above, we can help you find your dream home!
