Hey there, this is Susan with the Susan Rupert Group and your trusted real estate professional for State College PA area. Today we are gonna talk about a lot of misconceptions about buying a or selling a home today making it challenging to know exactly how to navigate the current real estate landscape.

Here’s a little clarity when it comes to the 5 myths about the 2021 housing market.

Myth no. 1: It’s better to get pre-approved after you find the perfect home to buy.
Reality is you should get pre-approved before you begin your home search so you know exactly what your budget is and can act quickly when you’re ready to make an offer. Just make sure the offer looks stronger to a seller.

Myth no. 2: Always start with your lowest offer when buying a house.
Reality is in a competitive market like we have today, you may not get a second chance.

Myth no.3 : It’s better to price your house on the high side when you’re selling. Reality is a home that’s price competitively will sell faster and attract multiple offers.

Myth no. 4: Renovating your house will definitely net you more money when you sell. Reality is renovations may be necessary but not all of them. Your trusted real estate advisor can advise you on what’s important to fix before you sell, and what’s not.

Myth no. 5: It’s safe to skip the home inspection if the house looks good.
Reality is you shouldn’t skip the home inspection – it could uncover hidden problems that may cost you down the line.
