Slower real estate market? If you’re thinking of holding off until things smoothen (?) out, well alright. If you are considering making a move now, congratulations.

There are steps you should take to lessen the chance you’re overpaying, or, at least, to lessen the chance you’re going to lose your life savings.

Specifically:

1. Stay informed. This means, read my blog.
2. Jump on a good deal. This means, know enough about the market, so that if the right deal comes along, you’re ready to go. For example, if a developer is offering their unsold units at 25% off current prices, that might be a good deal.
3. But…don’t move too fast. If there’s a good deal today, there might be a better one, tomorrow. Unless your needs are immediate, give yourself a couple of months leeway. There’s still uncertainty out there.
4. Get tough. Offering 15% less than asking, is a great place to start.
5. Go off the beaten path. I have no idea what they mean by this – buy a log cabin?
