Navigating the 2024 Inland Northwest Real Estate Market: Insights from Tyler Carlson of Carlson & Co Real Estate

Top 5 Tips for Prospective Home Buyers in 2024:

  1. Stay Informed on Interest Rates: With rates currently at 6%, down from 8%, monitoring these changes can significantly impact your mortgage payments. That means better affordability for home buyers! It also means more competition so make sure you are working with a Realtor with the right experince and track record to set you apart from the pack- Ask how they will do that!
  2. Explore Neighborhood Trends: Get familiar with specific area developments and neighborhood trends in the Inland Northwest, as these can significantly impact property values and community amenities. An agent who specializes in an area should be able to keep you updated each month on how things are evolving and make sure you know when its a good time to move.
  3. Be Prepared for Market Fluctuations: Keep abreast of market trends in Spokane and North Idaho to capitalize on buying opportunities. No matter what the market is doing- a great agent can find a good deal in any real estate market. Again, ask them to share examples of making this happen for other clients.
  4. Evaluate Your Financial Readiness: Ensure your financial health is in order, considering the down payment, closing costs, and ongoing homeownership expenses. Connect way ahead fo time with a few local mortgae lenders to learn different programs and opportunities that might fit you and your goals best. This also gives you time to select the right lender that can save you thousands of dollars up front and tens of thousands of dollars over the life of the loan. If you talk to a lender remember: they're going to give you their options- not all of them!
  5. Partner with a Trusted Real Estate Expert: Engage with local experts like Carlson & Co Real Estate to navigate the market complexities and find a home that fits your needs and budget. Here it is: not all agents are the same! As a smart home buyer, you should be interviewing with multiple agents and asking them the hard questions to make sure they are going to be the very best that you can find. Talk to friends, family and read reviews because a great realtor will make all the difference. Don't believe me? Reach out to Carlson & Co and we will prove it to you!
