The local neighborhood agent is a concept that passed away with the coming of the internet. Yes, they do have to be local enough to know your area, but they don't have to live next door. 90% of buyers find their home online - so a strong online marketing package, local knowledge, and overall experience and success combine to provide your best chance of success. A local yokel who lives in your neighborhood block and has a few signs around is not enough. ... more

Keep in mind that for privacy reasons, not all sellers wish to show their address outside MLS, therefore not necessarily an agent's fault for not posting the location--if you are looking to buy, consider working with an agent of your own--he/she can provide you with any information you may need. ... more

I think official monthly statistics reports, (Title companies give these out and so do I), or Realtor local CMAs are more accurate then free websites (zillow).

Mike, thanks for the update on your problem. You didn't say the price but the higher the price the harder it is to sell today. Look at comps. It sounds like the buyer needs to talk with your agents lender. Just because your house is priced close to the market or what you think the market is, my question is how long has your house been on the market and how many showing have you had and are the showing increasing or decreasing? If you have been on the market more than 4 months I would take the offer. Our real marketing time is 9+ months if you agents pulls past history of sales. If your agent really compared past sales history on each sale you will probably see that the homes that sold took over 9 months and came off the price more than 15% or more. If you don't take the rduced offer and waited 4 months then the offer today is the same as what the mortgage payment you made for the last 4 months not to mention the potential increase in interest rate payment which I think is a large issue in 4 months from now than losing $8,000. Add $300 a month to your next payment and see how far $8000 goes. Depending where you are moving to you might save more on the next house. If you are down sizing or not buying another house you are in a thougher spot mentally. I have seen super priced homes that have been on the market for 9 months or more and I connot believe that they have not had an offer? Good Luck

Kathy Lamorille with Windermere is awesome! We are on our third real estate transaction and she has been the best we have seen by far.

Good evening. As of the end of October the average market time in the Gresham area was running about 60 day. Remember, this is "average" time which means that if the home is priced well, staged well, and marketed aggressively, it could possibly sell in less time than 60 days.

Give me a call if I can be of further help to you.
