1) a CMA of the number of homes like yours that are presently on the market?
2) a CMA of the number of solds like yours sold since June?
The market continues to evolve...some areas going up, and others staying steady. Things will get slow between Dec 20 to Jan3...I would get more info on actual solds, and possibly wait until Jan 3 before you drop the price....then in January have the agent add your house to the BROKER open house schedule...and add a bonus to the buyers agent.
Without more info such as SF, it is kind of hard to really tell why your home is not selling in Metarie. Stay positive...and apply what I have above....just remember, there is alot of Road home money being released...so a billion dollars in our area alone!
Call or email me with more details and I can send you a Comparative Market Analysis so you can better see what your home could sell for. We could establish a marketing plan that includes a mortgage broker or two to help those people interested in purchasing your home.
I would have your agent get together with an insurance, mortgage and Closing attorney and put together a package so when she/he has an open house they can hand the potential buyer a whole package of 'what it takes to get into the house" Also, have in the package a CMA / BPO of the recent SOLDS in both Metarie and Kenner that are the same SF and utility as yours...this way they can see the value in yours versus others.
The market is moving...alot of people getting Road Home money seeking a place in Metarie versus other areas, plus alot of professionals with money in their pocket and a few college degrees are also moving in. This is changing the entire perspective of potential buyers for your place...so stay positive...only in this part of the country is there such a thing as "Road Home" money...so we are positioned for unprecedented growth despite what the national media tries to say...real estate is more of a local environment as opposed to national trend.
hope this helps
