Ralph has a good point about the dollar amount. You are likely to get more calls from people with homes worth less than 600K who want your 610K than people with homes worth much more than that. I hope you put the ad in and report back the results to Trulia.
In a downward market, I am assuming that almost every seller is willing to settle below their asking price. I am hoping that this approach will avoid wasting my agent's (and the seller's agent's) time with offers and counteroffers. In his market, if I have 20+% down, can settle in 10 days, and have a lot of flexibility, shouldn't buyers be looking for me?
Thank again and I encourage more comments.
I suppose it couldn't hurt to see what kind of responses that you'd get; my guess would be that someone looking to answer this type of ad is fairly desperate. Why else would they be actively soliciting bids? On second thought...maybe it IS a good way to go!
a) potential buyers who didn't want to deal with staging homes or go through the rigmarole.
b) people who had their homes on the market, but were willing to consider this price as a final offer.
Anyone else have thoughts?
