What if I sell my home, but I am not able to find one to buy?

Right now, this is one of the most common questions in real estate. The razor-thin supply of homes for sale in Western North Carolina cuts both ways. While it may be harder to find a home, sellers sit in the catbird seat negotiating with buyers. Besides price, there are many points of negotiation in a North Carolina Offer to Purchase. Closing dates are always negotiable, and with buyers bending over backward to win bidding wars, there’s more appetite for this type of creative deal structuring than ever before. There are also home loan and financing options that help a seller take advantage of the increased equity in their home before closing on their future home. Check out one of our most popular blog articles, “Which is Better to do First: Sell Your Current Home or Buy a New One?”.

Shannon is absolutely the best agent. We went through a slow but methodical search. Once the real estate market heated up so did our search. Shannon was on it right away: she called us to checki in, to see if there were any house we spotted on the Internet, daily sending us MLS generated listing for houses that suited our wants, etc. She literally worked day and night with us. After we found the house she kept us informed of what to expect and anticipate. She was there from the beginning and was sitting next to us at closing. What a wonderful person! She walked us through all the steps and kept is informed in detail what to expect and anticipate. Shannon is a good kind person - the sort of person who would do anything for you. Good agent but a great human being. Every encounter with the staff at the Downtown Asheville office was polite and very helpful. We never had to wait. We were really anxious about if we would be able to find house in this crazy market - we did and it’s just perfect for us. Shannon Watkins made this all possible. The mortgage dept. did a stellar job. We would not be in our new home if it went for their professional guidance and help.

Shannon Watkins is by far the best real estate professional we've ever dealt with. She ran the extra mile for us. Our purchase came during the outbreak of Covid 19. Much of our process had to be done remotely. Shannon was a whiz. Always there to help. Always with the information we needed. She crawled into the attic for us. Explored the crawl space. Did measurements. Took photos and videos. Offered clear and complete advice at every stage. She's efficient, cheerful, knowledgeable and smart. She was also a terrific ambassador for the Asheville area. We can't imagine not keeping Shannon Watkins as a friend. She's a gem. Convenient location. Shannon helped also in the selection of a remodel contractor and several subcontractors. Being new to the area, this was extremely helpful to us. Top notch

Shannon was very efficient, she showed properties thar were within our budget, she did,research on all the properties and always had the answers to our questions. She was very helpful and recommended areas we would be most comfortable living. She understood my reluctance going from a large home to a small condo, but she assured me we would find one that would feel like a home not an apt. in a big complex. She was always,professional and understood our time constraints. She made herself available whenever we were free. Couldn't have had a better exparience from beginning to closing. She is a great, thoroughly professional agent! We are friends ofJan Davis, and we were working with her for sevreal months. She referred us to Shannon and assured us Shannon would do a good job for us, and, as usual, Jan was right. Couldn't have had a better experience! Our entire experience with Shannon was positive and ultimately rewarding in that we found a place we that met our needs within our budget!
