“Top 8” Real Estate Questions for Lafayette Buyers, Sellers

Dated: August 7 2018

 Like almost everyone else in Lafayette who spends time online, I often come across lists. Headlines that list the “Top 10” or “Top 5” of almost anything usually catch my eye—especially the ones with “real estate” in the title. I’ve trained myself to just glance at the items and move on if they don’t add to the day’s useful information.

Checking through the most recent crop of Lafayette real estate lists yielded, “Top 10 Issues Affecting Real Estate,” “Top 8 Ideas for Real Estate Investing”, “5 Best Real Estate Investment Books”, etc.. This week there were a lot of lists of “Top Real Estate Questions”—which got me to thinking. What would a seriously thoughtful list of Real Estate Questions for Lafayette consist of? I came up with my own top 8 list of real estate questions for Lafayette residents:

1.      Do I intend to buy a home in 2018?

2.      Do I intend to sell a home in 2018:

3.      Do I intend to sell and buy a home in 2018?

4.      Will 2018 prove to be a better year to buy or sell a home than 2019 will be?

5.      Will Lafayette homes be more expensive to buy if I wait?

6.      Will I have a harder time selling my Lafayette home if I wait?

7.      Who is the best agent to help me sell my Lafayette home?

8.      Who is the best agent to help me buy Lafayette homes?

The first three questions are the most consequential. Lafayette is now past the midpoint of 2018, so if you don’t already have definite answers in hand, you need to decide, pronto. If that isn’t possible, the answer to 1, 2, and 3 is, “no!”

Questions 4,5, and 6 are the truly unanswerable ones. We had a hint last week that the answers are likely to be a qualified “yes,” because the Fed left interest rates unchanged—which means Lafayette’s rates remain near bargain basement levels. That usually makes for financially favorable deal-making. True, it’s always possible that next year will bring more of the same, but that’s not the likeliest scenario. Most experts believe that home loan rates will rise, probably moderately.

The last two questions have the most predictable answers based on where they appear: here. Give me a call for a detailed rundown on how I will work to prove that the correct answer to both is “me!”
