Anyone who has ever looked for a home has heard their Realtor warn you that the home you love could be sold while you "think about it". That is a mantra that is repeated even when seemingly nothing is selling. While technically true, if you are looking for a home in the Triangle, it is literally a matter of moments between seeing your dream home and it being sold.
Here are a couple examples of the reality of buying a home in Raleigh.
The median days on market is only 12 days. You might remember the days when the house you like today would still be available next month or the month after ... Those days are not today. The house you like today will be gone tomorrow unless there are serious problems with it.
If you think the market is HOT in the single family market, take a look at the condo/th market for a moment.
The median days on market is only 7 days. If you see a home you like that happens to be a condo or townhouse, there is a good chance that if you see it today, it will be sold tonight.
There are a number of things you can do to increase your chances of getting the home you want. The first is Don't Delay. If you have a Realtor, stay in touch. If you don't have a personal Realtor, click on my link below and we will talk about how you can get the house you want instead of watching while someone else get it.

"One day, after Mr. Michael Johnson, took my wife and myself around for literally four (4) hours, perhaps even more on that day, looking for a house. I was at the point where I myself was saying to him that I thought that he had done enough for that day. We got to a lot in Wake Forest, that both my wife and myself liked. And as we stood there looking around I began speaking to Mr. Johnson, about my financial situation which to be truthful I am not proudful about one bit. Considering my age, and the length of time my wife and I have worked and yet our financial condition sucks, forgive my english grammar. Mr. Johnson, stood there and listened to me rant and rave about this matter, without as much as saying one single word. His eyes full of tears but yet he did not cry. He knew that I was hurt and ashamed of my situation, but not once did he as much as give me an idea that he did not care. I will never as long as I live forget that moment in my life, never. Mr. Johnson, then said to me after I dried my eyes from the tears that I shed there in front of him, he said to me, Oscar, we will do all we can to find you a home, I promise you that. Well, on December 31st. my wife, Carlota Belmo, Mr. Nelson Estrela, of New Penn Financial, Mr. Hamrick, the Attorney, Mr. Michael Johnson and myself Oscar Belmo, were at the table for closing on the home of our dream. Thanks to the effort of so many hard working people and the Grace of God. Thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of our heart. We love each and every one of you. God, bless you. May God, bless and keep each and every one of you."
