I live in the Lake Padgett area myself. In this market, you need to be the nicest house at the best price in the neighborhood. Is your home listed with a realtor? When was the last time they did a market analysis to see what is selling and at what price? Also they need to pull all the homes that you are competing with to determine if you are positioned correctly in price & condition. You must also keep in mind that we are so close to many newer home developments that are offering homes that are less than 6 years old for great prices because they are going into foreclosure or being liquidated by investors.
The way to best approach getting your home sold depends on YOU. Are you motivated to sell? Which is more important-price or time? If you are stuck on a price just because you feel that's what you should get period end of story, then you may not be moving in the very near future. But, if you have equity in the house and you want to get it overwith and move on then I would suggest an auction. It will sold on a specific day at a specific time and you can set a minimum price that you will accept. I would suggest one of the auction companies that does the auction right there on the property because that tends to bring a better price than when people are sitting in some hotel ballroom and they have 150 homes to sell. OR, are you needing to sell because you are facing foreclosure or behind in payments? Need to sell but no equity to allow you to sell the property at a lower price? Then a short sale may be in order.
I hope this helps you. I would be glad to talk with you about your situation BUT if you are currently listed with another realtor then I cannot solicit you for your business until that business relationship has ended.
