There were some discrepancies in the figures you were given.. I wanted you to know that my figures were based on homes that went under contract from 9/18/08 until today in the township of Huntington. I did not limit it to Melville nor did I restrict my data by school district. If you would like a more specific area, ie. Melville SD#13, I would be glad to provide you with those numbers.
As of Today 11/19/08 (from 9/1/08), 37 homes are in contract and 93 homes are closed (from Sept, 2008) from different price range. Open House is a tool to market the property and buyers to come and view your home in their time (wihout the appointment). Today's buyer approx 89% search their home on internet. Please evaluate all the catagories such as Condition, Price, Location(we can't change the location, everything else), Easy Access for showing, etc with your agent and see what kind of changes should be done for more buyer traffic and SOLD.
139 homes went under contract in the last 2 months in our area. The good news is that homes are selling! You need to evaluate if everything is being done to market your home including internet exposure, pricing, access to the home by potential prospects, etc.
