What might it mean when a seller lowers the listing price by less than one percent? Lets say not even half of one percent but .2%?

Yes you do. Trulia does not do FSBO properties. It is not wise to sell without the support of a Realtor, but to each his/her own.

Chad Roberts answered:
One consideration is you could contact a Realtor for a limited listing agreement. Some professionals provide this service as they can list your property on the MLS for a fee and provide you more exposure for your property. This same Realtor could provide a comparative market analysis. Granted, I advocate the assistance of a Realtor as your sale deserves the attention of a professional.

Otherwise, you would contact someone for an appraisal.

Jim Olive answered:
No offense, but if it is on a busy street and nobody is making an offer, you are probably over the market value. Were the comps on a busy street? The value of your home is in a RANGE, not a single price. List it closer to the bottom of the range and you'll have more potential buyers. List it closer to the top of the range and you'll have fewer potential buyers. Depending on MANY variables, 120 days does not seem like a huge number. How serious are you about selling? Weigh all these factors and revisit two decisions: whether to keep it on the market (sell) and is your list price set optimally to meet your goal. Hopefully you have an agent and can have this discussion with him/her. Best of luck... ... more

There are many reason a home seller may want their home appraised.
One is to establish a baseline from which the words of the visiting REALTOR can be compared.

You will find there to be many benefits to contacting a local lender (portfolio lender) that your REALTOR recommends to complete the appraisal. Don't allow the buyer to choose a big bank lender who is certain to inflict pain in the home seller, if they close at all.

Best of success,

Mark Warren answered:
Actually both of the older responses I have read in this string are somewhat incorrect with respect to the ERA program. The program is designed very much like a relocation buy-out program. ERA, like relocation companies aren't in the business of buying homes for re-sale. But they do offer to clients a guaranteed sale program. With ERA, like relocation companies, your home and the client have to qualify for the program. ERA will guarantee the purchase of your home at the end of the listing term at a price discounted off appraised value. The object of the program is to get a higher and better price (than the buy-out price) for the home from the market, and that is the strength of the program. It is very successful doing that. It is a very transparent program too. For instance, if the house is purchased by ERA and sold for a higher price later on, the seller is refunded the difference less any caring costs like utilities and so on. The sellers can also op-out of the program at any time. ... more

Hi Joseph,

In reviewing some statistics from the local Multiple Listing Service, it appears that the home you refer to may be over-priced. It does sound like it is well cared-for and updated, but the average 4 bedroom home in 45415 has been selling for around $130k.

Provided that you are working with a Real Estate Agent, they should be able to provide you with this type of information. It sounds as though you may currently be pursuing a For Sale By Owner sales strategy.

If are not currently represented and would like to discuss the advantages of employing an agent, I would be happy to meet with you. Please feel free to contact me directly at 937-516-5666.

Alvada Stanley answered:
It is possible that your condo will qualify for FHA financing under the new guidelines released in September, 2012 by FHA. When I know the address of a property I can learn whether or not it will meet FHA guidelines for financing. The entire condo association must be FHA approved. If I can do anything to help you to sell your condo please contact me at 937-610-7687, Coldwell Banker Heritage Realtors. Even if it isn't FHA approved, there are some conventional loans which don't require 20% down.

See the following:
"Greater numbers of condominiums now qualify for mortgage financing insured by the Federal Housing Administration. That's because this month the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, which oversees the FHA, loosened its requirements for association approval."

The biggest challenge between clients and their agents is communication... in any market.
Sellers want to be updated on what their agent is doing for them, and rightfully so.
They want to be updated frequently and without having to ask for those updates.
Their home is their biggest investment. We should treat the agent/client relationship with the respect and care that we would want if we were the sellers.
