Over the last few months, almost a dozen of my friends have decided to say goodbye to renting and become first-time homeowners. As someone who doesn't plan on following in their footsteps anytime soon (I enjoy the flexibility of renting too much), it's been interesting to live vicariously through them as they search for the homes of their dreams.
Realtor.com expects home sales to grow 6.6% this year, and forecasts not only continued limited inventory but prices rising by 2.9%. Depending on where you're trying to buy a home, it can feel competitive, and if you don't put in an offer fast enough, you might not even stand a chance.
