Attention condo and house buyers! People searching for Milwaukee condos, single family homes and other real estate in the Milwaukee area are finding a slowing but still competitive marketplace. Over the past few years, the real estate market was on a great upswing. This was particularly true with condos and single-family homes. When the market was weak, condos suffered more than other types of real estate. However, many buyers have realized that condos are right for them. Recent mortgage interest rate increases have discouraged some people from moving. That has meant fewer buyers in the market. Additionally, it has led to fewer houses on the market too. So, while inventory is lower, the lower amount of buyers for houses, condos and duplexes have created a balance in the marketplace.
If you are looking for a condo or home in Mequon, Grafton, Cedarburg, downtown Milwaukee, east side or north shore, it is important to be prepared to make an offer when you start looking. That means that you should have a preapproval in hand from a lender if you plan to get a mortgage. And, if you own the property in which you currently live, you should have a plan on how to handle the transition. Many listings are getting accepted offers within hours so that means buyers need to be prepared when they see something they want. Real estate professionals in the area are frequently working with competing buyers for properties.
Additionally, over the past few years there has been a shortage of condos and single family homes in the Milwaukee area which underlines the need to be prepared.
Some banks around Milwaukee are offering great packages for first-time home buyers of condos and single-family homes as well as owner occupied duplexes. Also, there are a number of other financing offers from government sponsored programs (VA, FHA, WHEDA) for first-time home buyers of single-family homes with very low down payments. There are also a handful of banks in the Milwaukee area that are working with outside sources for grant money to assist first-time homebuyers with their down payment monies.

One detail people overlook is whether something is in a floodplain. Many people love being near water. However, is that waterfront property a liability? A house in a floodplain can cost money. Besides the potential damage, if you have a mortgage, you will probably need floordplain insurance. There are different levels of severity for floodplains. You can learn more at the link below.
