Hi. Personally I don't like marking up the price of a house when listing much if any at all. If my client needs to sell in a fairly short amount of time, I always list right around what it's worth. Going and marking it way up, and then having to wait, and start dropping the price is a waste of everyone's time. Sellers may not like hearing that, but when it comes to selling, the sooner you sell, the more money you save/earn in the long run.
I recently sold a beautiful home off of Clyo Rd in Centerville. Sellers let me price it where I told them to, and we had it under contract in 3 weeks :-)
I'd be happy to help you if you are still in the market. I know the area very well. Give me a call, or shoot me an email. There's no obligation to you whatsoever! Thanks!... more
Kathy, that is a great question and one my clients commonly ask. Unfortunately the laws have changed and this information is now protected. I have found that most owners are usually willing to share this information when requested to assist with the decision folks are making when considering new homes to purchase. Please give me a call if I can help. Good luck with your search.... more
I'd be happy to help you, however, if you have already enlisted an agent through a signed Buyer's Agency Agreement, then you must do business with this agent or ask the brokerage firm with whom the agent works that you wish to be relieved from the services of the agent. Generally, the broker will assign another agent for you from their comany. If the agent showed you this home, then that agent is entitled to compensation unless you make other arrangements with the broker. The broker should be able to assist you with a market research for this house if your agent cannot. Good luck.... more
Let me suggest something you may not have considered, if you do a search in your price range, you will find some excellent values from all kinds of sources rather than narrowing your search to just these types of properties. For example, properties being sold through relocation companies can be a much better value than those you've listed. Also many homeowners are competing with these sellers.
Here's why these are perhaps better over all values, most short sales, bank owned and foreclosures are sold "as is". You can do inspections for your own purposes but the sellers can not or will not make any repairs. Relocation companies and private owners generally will.
It would be my pleasure to help you,
