I don't know the specifics of your listing, but I do know that we are seeing an increased level of activity. If your home is not getting showings, then it is due to your property being too high priced for the area/condition, the marketing of your house, or a combination of the two. How does your house compare to the competition - meaning all the other properties on the market right now in your price range? If you have a property listed by an agent, have you looked at your listing online to see how your agent is marketing it? Have they put in 20+ pictures and a virtual tour? Or did they do the minimum 8 pictures in the MLS and are relying on a sign on the road to drive traffic? If you are listing it yourself, how did you come up with the price? And how are you marketing it?
I have some listings that have sat for over 6 months, but I listed a house on thursday that went under contract on saturday. The buyers are out there, but there is a lot of inventory for them to choose from. The more you can showcase and market your house - and make sure it is competitively priced - the better your chances of selling.... more
Yes, I am finding the market here on the MidCoast of Maine to be very hot right now. It has only been over the past couple of months, but great agents always find a way to be busy! You must be one of those agents!
