A lot of patience is required. Buyers have had lots of short sales and foreclosures in the past to choose from which are where they don't have to spend as much money. As the distressed properties all get SOLD, the buyers will slowly come around to the fair market value houses. Our inventory of homes has declined significantly from 1,620 at the highest point of our inventory for Lawrence in June 2007 to our present inventory of only 484. Your patience since 2009 needs to extend just a bit longer because we sell on average 1000 houses per year and we don't have 1000 to sell on the market.

Hi Henry
Buyers have many properties to choose from in todays market. However, approximately 45% of the homes are short sales and foreclosure properties. That is why Buyers are making low offers. To reap the highest price for your real estate:
1. Have a pre inspection;
2. Fix the repairs the home inspector suggest;
3. Have your home staged;
4. Pack the items that you do not need and store those items away;
5. Consider a lease/purchase.
Best Regards

To New Hampshire. Originally placed house on the market in 2009 when the S__t hit the fan. Today it seems that buyers want you to give it away. Some day. Market not like Fl or CA, etc.
