OK, how about from a potential buyers prospective now!
I've been looking at property in the Middleton area for almost a year now and everything I see is still way over priced. In perspective, I am also trying to sell my home in another state but in a upper tier development ($450k-650k). Almost every home that I look in Middleton has lesser quality materials interior and exterior than is in mine and yet owners are still asking $75k-$100k more. I'm sorry but I'm not going to pay $100k and get less. Upper tier buyers are getting smarter and wiser. We know what it costs to put in granite, hardwood floors, custom cabinetry etc. and we know the difference between quality work and shabby work.
Real estate in the Middleton/Madison area is lagging the national scene by 6 months if not a year. Follow the comments by Keith, Donna & Jon and forget the incentives. If you are desperate to sell then your price MUST be lowered. I'm already pricing my home more than $70k less than I have into it and that is with top of the line interior, premium interior finishes that I don't hardly see in homes in Middleton.
So bite the bullet and reduce or take it off the market.... more
