Hi, The fact that you had so many showings out of the gate is a great sign that you are priced right! What I find is that buyers can take longer to pull the trigger if there is alot of competing homes for sale. Now that the spring market is coming up many people want to wait and see what is going to come on the market. People tend to think there will always be something better coming on, which may be true but you'll never buy a home if you live like that. Hopefully the agents have qualified the buyers properly and can help them foucs enough to commit to your home. i always tell my buyers, "if you find a home you love, meets all your needs, and you can see yourself living there why not make an offer?"

Our market is actually in need of more Sellers. Many people in our area are hesitant to move because of the media. Yes gas is higher, and yes you actually do need an income to support a mortgage. However the government has stepped up and you can now use FHA for financing up to $327,000 with only 2.25% down! The Pittsburgh market didn't get invited to the "Big Buble Party" in Real Estate and so our home values have remained at a steady appreciation of about 3%. Buyers are in our market shopping now! Intrest rates are still between 5&7/8 to 6 &1/2 % Many people are also moving to Allegheny County to have a closer commute now that gas prices are higher. Most importantly is having your home in tip top shape,clean,uncluttered, repairs made and Priced Right! Think about having a home inspection done and replacing old carpet. Get a market analysis from several agents. Choose a full time agent, and be sure you like your agent. Real Estate sales is a partnership, your agent works with you as well as for you. Real Estate agents work for free until your home is sold and check is in hand!!! I am motivated to get you a buyer that brings you the most money for your home in the shortest time. By the way who knows where we'll be in 3 years.... more
