Ways to take the stress off when buying a home in a seller’s market

The real estate market in Nanaimo is currently a very active sellers market.  It is not a fun time to be a buyer as there is a lot of competition for almost every listing that comes up.  There are ways to ease the stress in a competitive market like this including: Getting pre-approved BEFORE you shop for a home, shop only in your price range, know what your closing costs are going to be and have the money set aside and choose what neighbourhoods you want before viewing homes.  Working with a Realtor is important as you navigate your way through what can be a very tricky market.
