Based on what I'm seeing the market is improving. For pre-foreclosure homes, the lenders are not low balling their settlements in short sales as they did several years back...they are more often coming in higher with their BPO values thus resulting in short sale settlements that average between 10-20% below retail. Sometimes more depending on case circumstances.

The "Bluff Section" aka " Palisades East" aka "Riverside" has three zones;

R-1 A; 100x100 lot ; 10,000 Sq. Ft.; Duncan Road and East Euclid.
R-1: 75 X 100 lot; 7,500 Sq. Ft.; South of Euclid.
R-2: 50 X 100 lot; 5,000 Sq. Ft; North of Euclid.

Cost of Raw land or existing home for a knock down:

R-1A; $1,200,000 min. - $1,500,000 with full river view.
R-1; $800,000 min. - $1,000,000-$1,200,000 partial river view - $1,500,000 $1,800,000 for full river view.
R-2: $350,000- 450,000 depending on location.

Cost of new construction in these zones $200.00 per square foot of living area.

Prices should be similar over next year. As interest rates go up, prices will come down. As the stock market makes a down ward correction people may take profits and invest in quality homes.

Paula Clark answered:
Typically here is a great way to know if a home is priced correctly.
You can never price a home too low because the buyers will set the price and there will be many offers thus creating a bidding war. However, if you price the home too high, it will sit and the buyers will sit back and wait for a reduction. At that time, the homeowner will be repositioning that home with a new price. At that time the buyers will make an offer, but usually at a much lower price.
Unless of course there is more than one buyer.
Look at days on the market always. If you would like to know more about homes in your market place, and information on where the price should be. Call or email me with the address, and I will send you a market report of that home immediately. No questions asked.
