Homes in Duck, NC for the 1st quarter of 2008, are selling in the average range of 167-240 "Days on Market". If your home is priced competively, it could sell even sooner! Having your home priced right initially is crucial in today's market. Pricing too high to begin with can be a major dealbreaker. This is where a professional can come in very handy! You need to be analyzing pending contracts just as much as closed deals to see what prices per square foot have created buyer incentive on those homes under contract.
Donâ€™t listen to the gloom and doom stories! If you have given some thought to selling property that you currently own, I would be pleased to provide you with a FREE competitive market analysis (CMA). This information will help to determine a price range for your property. I will then go over these findings with you as well as review your competition within the neighborhood.
I advertise in the Homes and Land Magazine, subscribe to 25+ websites that will promote your home and I am a member of the Outer Banks Association of Realtors Multiple Listing Service. All of my listings will be in the local Homes and Land Magazine for the entire duration of the contract. I do not rotate my ads like most real estate brokers do. If it is for sale it is advertised! Additionally, I will construct a virtual tour of your home to promote it on the websites to which I subscribe. Please check out my inventory of virtual tours at http:// http://www.nagsheadhomes.com or http:// http://www.hughwilleyobx.com

You need interview some local area realtors and have them each run a comparative market analysis of you home to determine the present market value. Then also make sure to ask them what the average days on market has been for the homes that have sold and what the present days on market is for the active comps that are still on the market. That will give you some indication of the present market.
Just remember to interview them just like it is a job, they are going to be working for you. If you decide to sell then make sure all parties are aware of what type (email, phone) and frequency (daily, weekly, monthly) of communication you are expecting.

As I work in property management I do not sell homes but the agents in my office say they are experiencing more sellers in the last thirty to forty five days. I would recommend getting a CMA from a local agent and then decide from there. If the market will not bear what you would like to receive from your home it may be wiser to hold off.
