Get Prepared: Gahanna Homes are Selling FAST

Look no further than the most recent issue of The Columbus Dispatch to find the latest news about how fast homes are selling in Central Ohio.  The market is healthy all over Columbus, including right here in Gahanna.

If you are looking to buy a home in Gahanna, here are a few tips to better prepare yourself for a home buying process that is going to move a little quicker than normal:

1.  Know the market:  Reading this blog and reading news from the area will get you into the right mindset.  Be prepared to be decisive and move quickly.

2.  Get pre approved for financing:  I feel like I say this in most of my blog posts, but I cannot stress enough the importance of getting your finances in order prior to begin your home search.  So many issues can be avoided by starting out with a good lender.

3.  Trust a connected Realtor:  You need information as soon as it is available.  Not every other day, not whenever your Realtor has time, not ________.  You need to know about homes immediately, and you need to tour them immediately.  Make sure your Realtor has you set up with email alerts, text alerts, or whatever communication method is going to be best... It is crucial to be ahead of the pack.

4.  Don't rush:  Yes, I know I said that things go fast and you need to act quickly.  But, also keep in mind that there is no need to rush into a situation that isn't ideal.  Trust that more homes will hit the market if the one for you isn't out there.  If you've done #'s 1, 2, and 3 on this list, #4 is much easier!

Take care,
