Oh, and let me add, please don't say I am "overpriced." I'm not. The agent suggested the price, for starters.

In general, the price points are trending upward. I do expect the newer complexes, i.e. 2006 and beyond, to experience the most increases. Our business on the beach is predicated upon rental income with the Summer months having the highest rates....sell in the Spring. ... more

Appraisals are supposed to be unbiased assessments of a property's value. Foreclosures tend to sell at big discounts from the actual value.

The home may be located close to a foreclosure, in which case the home may appraise for less than the seller feels it is worth. That recently happened to me. If the comparable property used in an appraisal or comparable market analysis happens to be a foreclosure with a rock bottom price, that could pull the appraised home value right down with it.
In this area there in an abundance of foreclosed properties, and while it is wise for property owners to price to sell they don't want to loose their shirts doing so. Also I agree that many property owners have emotional ties to their homes that need to gently be severed in a buyers market. I hope this helps.
Peace, Amy
