Spring Home Buying Tips in Greater Nashville

Spring may bring budding flowers, chirping birds, and pleasant temperatures to Middle Tennessee but it also brings one of the busiest seasons in real estate. You may see “For Sale” signs popping up in the neighborhood as frequently as new blooms in the garden! If you are hoping to make a move, don’t miss these spring home buying tips.

Spring House Hunting Tip #1 – Build Your Home Buying Dream Team 

If spring-cleaning has you in a hyper-organized mood, channel some of that energy into your house hunting.

Spring market is THE best market in Nashville. Buyers are typically prequalified for a loan and educated on the neighborhoods they desire. Many buyers use real estate websites to scour the listings and communicate with their agents immediately when one catches their eye. But demand still outnumbers the current inventory in our market so don’t sit behind the computer screen for too long!

“You need to be able to see the new homes the day they list, so you can be the first to see the home and make a quick decision. First offers usually are successful offers.”

Spring House Hunting Tip #3 – Nab Low Mortgage Rates

Home buyers say that one of the biggest challenges to home ownership is saving for a down payment. Mortgage rates are still near historical lows, which is opening the doors for some. Also, several government programs are helping to increase mortgage availability for first-time home buyers. For example, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are now requiring as little as 3 percent down payments for new conforming loans. The Federal Housing Administration has lowered its insurance premiums, which has helped make loans more affordable to first-time buyers. Take advantage of low interest rates and these programs while they last!
