14 showings is a respectable amount of viewings. Price, location and condition are all factors to take into consideration when pricing property. A good marketing plan is key in letting buyers know your property is available. You can ask your agent if you arent already receiving the feedback reports, to have them automaticalyl sent to you. You will then have an idea of what has been deterring buyers from making an offer. Sometimes it may be as simple as the monthly condo fee is too high. You can't do anything about that if it is the case. If not and all things seem to be in order then price may be a factor. In my experience condos seem to take a bit longer than a single residential home to sell. Best of Luck to You! ... more

Hey Andrew,

Not a big fan of Zillow myself, but when it comes to preliminary market trend research, they have one of the nicest formats to demonstrate the trends of each particular area for each particular time frame. You can go as wide in both or as narrow and you can personally modify your parameters.

THE CATCH with Zillow - their estimates of values are almost always wrong, because they do not adjust their for condition or foreclosures/short sale properties. Great format with misleading information is as good as any other unreliable source of info. If you are the type who likes to do your homework first, google market stats from the National Association of Realtors.

For more in-depth analysis, you will be better off with a professional advice form a solid, full-time buyer’s agent with research background and/or a stellar performance record. When you are ready for that stage in your home buying process, check out my background and services and call.

Good luck in the meantime,

Having worked with the developer of 4545 Lindell, I can tell you there are no opportunities for leasing/sub-leasing. There is only one unit not currently occupied by the owner, and she will be moving into it soon. There are a few remaining units for sale, starting at $469,000.

Park East Towers occasionally has leases become available, but there are none showing at this time. There are a few other buildings at that price point and condition to watch--rentals do not come up often. Consider contacting an agent you trust to monitor unit availability for you.
