1. Pricing is the number one thing that will sell your home more than ever in this market. If you are not EXTREMELY COMPETITIVE, your home will sit and become a stale listing, which attracts mostly investors or buyers who only bid very low when the home has been on the market for a long time.
2. Besides price, buyers are negotiating on work to be done to homes - pest inspection reports, home inspection reports, fireplace and roof reports are common. In order to protect yourself and not waste your time locating a buyer only to find out within 1-2 weeks that the buyer wants to continue negotiations, be sure to order your inspections in advanced ONLY from extremely honest and reliable firms who are highly regarded in the real estate industry. Therefore, when an offer is presented, you can negotiate EXACTLY what you will and will not take care of as part of the sale. The last thing you want is to sell your home and then have it come back on the market within a week or two. It is VERY confusing to Realtors because they assume something is wrong with the home!
If you are curious because you have a home in the Eastside Danville to sell, I can send you a CMA report, which would show you all listings, time on the market, properties pending and those that have sold. If you are looking to buy, prices are soft right now, but sales activity is brisk for most part. That is due to the pricing adjustment. Well-priced properties are not staying on the market very long; some are experiencing multiple offers.
