The Boulder County real estate market is as fast-paced as ever, with homebuyers struggling to find the right house before it gets snapped up. Homebuying is an emotional experience, and the market’s intensity has increased the pressure. If you are looking to buy a home in the current market, here are three tips to successfully navigate your home search.

Set up instant property alerts. Wright Kingdom has an excellent property alerts tool that allows users to save their search criteria and sends alerts directly to your email as soon as a house is listed on the market.

Hire a fast-moving, tech savvy agent. Not all real estate agents are created equal, and many only work part time. Find an aggressive agent who is dedicated to meeting you in a timely manner. Choose an agent who moves fast and is tech savvy. The real estate industry has changed dramatically over the past few years with the internet and rapidly changing technology. Some agents have adapted well to these changes while others struggle to catch up – be sure to find an agent who uses technology to your advantage.

Prepare to make an aggressive offer. In this competitive market, listing agents often receive several offers very quickly, and it is important to make sure your offer stands out among the rest. A good agent knows the best way to structure a contract to make it as appealing as possible to the home sellers in your market. Talk to your agent to form your offer strategy before you begin your home search.
