I agree with you Cecil. I am local to Surprise and specialize in that city among others. It is an EXTREMLY challenging area especially if you are selling and not understanding current conditions. It is excellent if you are buying! Cheap forclosures with more to come.
As an example, I am currently working with an investor client and we went out Wednesday this week to view bank owned homes betwen $65-75 per square foot vs 2005 sales of $120-170 per sf. Do the math and that is what $0.40 on the dollar?
How does this compare to what you paid Laura?
I would again have you discuss your selling needs with a Realtor who can evaluate your situation and get you their professional opinion on what has to happen AND not tell you what you want to hear.
Local, professional, and superior customer service.
Looking forward to hearing from you
