Home Buying in Staten Island>Question Details

Mike, Home Buyer in Staten Island, NY

Does it appear there is increased competition between buyers for homes that have had large price reductions since they were first listed?

Asked by Mike, Staten Island, NY Tue Sep 24, 2013

Can't find those properties that had price reductions the last few months. Are they off listing or are they being swallowed up by active buyers?

Anytime a home have a price reduction interest will increase.

People like to think they are getting a deal. REDUCED price is a draw.

Depends on the specific real estate.
If the price reduction falls into the value zone, yes there will be competition.
One Gulf of Mexico, big water view home, started at 1.4 millioin and large price decrease to 800 thousand....still no takers.
Be aware, a buyer interprets a price reduction as a demonstrated willingness of the seller to negoiate, an indication of motivation. I can tell the number of buyers who place a specific property on their watch list. Knowledgeable professionals will use a price reduction as a strategy to flush the waiting buyers from the shadows and create a critical mass of fresh buyers. Such a trigger event tyically results in the waiters contining their wait for another piece of real estate. (To indecisivie to act)
In increasing numbers, real estate is sold that NEVER reaches the radar of lurking buyers.
If you study the result of the HUD home pricing strategy, you will find difinative answer to your question in that market segment.

Since there is a shortage of houses for sale any home that is priced right and in good condition is selling quickly. As for large price reductions, those homes have become more attractive to buyers because of the shortage. Bidding wars over priced right homes has become common place.

If you are looking for a new home and you see one that fits what you want, you would be wise to jump on it quickly. Call me if you need help finding a home. Buyers never pay a commission.
