In MOST areas of New York, houses have recently been selling more quickly than they were earlier this year. That has a lot to do with the prices coming down significantly from their original listing prices. As the inventory back log lessens that gap should get more reasonable. I am seeing more actual competition for listings up here now and my buyers and sellers are seeing closer to list sales happening again. If I can refer you to a buyers agent to help you direclty, please let me know. This is a free service to you and I can have a relocation specialist in contact in about a day. Let me know if I can help.
My Best and Good Luck!
Merrick tends to be a better area than other areas
in Long Island. There are less foreclosures and
less short sales. As to your question that you see the listing
price and the sales price a big difference, this might be
due to the fact that the market is changing faster than
the market value can be determined. So the selling price
then becomes the new market value of homes in that area.
This market is changing every month so it is hard to keep up with
it especially when you want to get the most money for the sellers.
I hope this answers your question.
