According to Jordan Cameron at Redfin, April 20, 2020, homebuyers are now working with their agents to get even more guidance on what to do next at every step of the homebuying process. With the housing market changing rapidly, there’s a greater need for the most up-to-date information on the US Housing Market conditions and trusted opinions on how to interpret them. Redfin Agents have been frequently checking in with their buyers, providing the most recent listings and explaining strategies on how to take advantage of the local real estate market.
Those buyers making offers in competitive areas have also been able to find success coming in at lower price points than they might otherwise – with calculated agent help. Some home sellers seem to want to speed up the offer review process and accept the first good offer when normally they’d wait several days to see the highest offer come through. This has been an advantage for qualified buyers, who may have an easier time getting their offer accepted.
