Real estate prices are determined by buyers and sellers.

Even though an appraisal report is needed in order to secure a loan, ultimately if the buyer wants to cure the difference between the report and the asking price or is paying all cash for the property then the property is worth what the buyer paid for it. ... more

First sorry to hear about your lost; I understand this is a tough time to sell a home.

There is no easy way to say how to do a quick fix, but the most common mistake in Real Estate is doing business with a friend of the family. I constantly am fixing this problem for listing that have gone south. You have to be able to be honest about expectation, goal, and most importantly your back pocket with your LISTING AGENT. Most people find this hard to do with a "family friend".

The simplest thing to do is to start over. Interview a few agents. Get an out side prospective,.

I hope this works out for you.

Let me know if you need anymore advice.

Dear Gullah Girl,
You have received thorough advice. I think the suggestion to contact a real estate attorney to review your situation is worth considering or even a mortgage professional.

Best of luck!

Is there an estimated date on lifting the foreclosure moratorium? I agree Charleston has a way to go. Charleston peaked much later than the rest of the country so we will hit a bottom later. ... more

Foster Smith answered:
Mortgage defaults, whether they are prime or subprime mortgage, have a deleterious affect on the prices of houses. However, the more fundamental rule of value will hold more weight. This fundamental rule is the rule of supply and demand. Therefore, the very limited supply of properties South of Broad will continue to counter balance any general negative effect the market is experiencing. Charleston has bucked the national trends many times in the past and is continuing to do so currently. ... more

Suspectbuyer answered:
Hold the course Hoosier, if you are still in the market. In the price range you are interested in, the market continues to tank and the inventory grows each week. Now that the summer is over, demand will drop off sharply and viola, prices will continue their downward adjustment.

Take your time - interest rates aren't going up anytime soon contrary to what some 'experts' have posted.

"Didn't you get the memo", I considered an opinion.

Since I am always right, don't try to argue. That would be a problem, because you are always right too! :)

David Chamberlain answered:
Found the bottom, It is to early to judge whether or not feb 17th was a GTTB or not check back in 2-3 years. You might respond with why 2-3 years. The reason is a buyer should not buy a home with the expectation of selling in 6 months. ... more
