Not only do lenders qualify the purchaser, the property a buyer is looking to purchase is also a consideration in the lending process. A knowledgeable agent has to be able to put the whole package together.
I have many contacts in your area who have been in the business for many years. I would be happy to call them and set up a time for them to make an E-Valuation of your home.
My best for the Holidays.
Ocean City, Md,
I am sorry for your situation.
It sounds to me as though you have not been educated in the home selling process, so please permit me...
First, look at the attached link below. It clearly shows that the market is in a state of decline.
The average price per square foot has dropped 18% in the last twelve months.
But homes are selling. 102 homes recently sold...just not your home.
So here are some facts that you should know:
If homes are selling, but not yours, the most likely culprit is price. What you really need is a top agent in the area to analyze your situation. There are three things that affect the sale of a home:
1. The local market conditions
2. The price value of your home (condition, marketing, preparation for sale
3. Your personal situation (how much you need to net, when you need to sell).
The problem many sellers have is they think that they eventually will get their price. In most areas of the US the buyers control the market. The ONLY homes that sell must ooze value. And unless there are exceptional circumstances, homes will not sell for more than their market value.
Particularly when other homes are selling,
So I would be happy to refer you to a top Realtor that knows your market and can give you advice.
In most markets, a new listing should receive 10-12 showings or one offer in the first two weeks on the market, or a price reduction is in order. Since another Realtor brings the buyer 90% of the time, is the home is not being shown, it will not sell. IF you had sold your home a year ago, you probably would have sold it for more. With the current economic picture, only the BEST value homes will selll
Are you sure that you are priced realistically? I would suggest that you take a deep breath and then ask your agent (and maybe your first agent also) this question. Please listen to their reply with an open mind before you possibly 'shoot the messanger' and, if necessary, reduce your price. Our prices (in NJ) are back to around 2004 levels.
As Lynne said, speak to your lender first and understand your options. Review your builder contract and understand the position that the builder "can" take. Then open up dialog with them and find out what options they might suggest.
Our current market remains "spotty" with many buyers wanting to wait until next year to see what develops with interest rates.
b) Mortgage broker is your best person speak with regarding leasing your home how your loan is structure.
c) Lending has changed it depends on value of home many families no longer have a down payment purchase a home. NOW with slow period of year Sept - April many home showings slow , most of our listings if they dont sale during business months we take off the market till next busy season.
Sorry to hear about your circumstance.
