Where are you getting this information from? What are you basing this on? I haven't looked at the MLS today yet, but it seems to me that if most of the listings that were "relisted" when the merger occurred, were all done in the same time frame of a week or two, they would all be expiring around the same time. Those listings that didn't sell would then have to be relisted again, so would have new MLS numbers and of course would appear as a "new" listing yet again.
I know the East and West office you are speaking of and I am sure that this is not a "conspiracy". As was suggested last time you asked this question, if you have a concern, why not just call the broker and ask for an explanation direct from the horses mouth. BTW I don't work for that broker so have nothing to gain.
Unwavering Commitment to Service
a lot of sellers pull of listings off because they feel the weather will stop buyers from comming out and two homes in Westfield are selling if they are priced correct.
As for the merger, I would not call it a merger, Bergdorff was owned by our same parent company and they felt it would be more economical to "blend" the town brands into one. East and West are under different roofs but we now work as a team.
I will say that we are already in or "spring market" and the buyers that are ready, willing and able are out in full force enjoying the great opportunities out there. Just think, I call this the perfect storm for a buyer, low interest rates, bargin prices. If you are thinking of timming the market, guess what now is the perfict time to buy in Westfield.
