Can't work that closely on size, but, if you broaden it out to 986-1186 sq ft built in the late 40's I found 5 sales since August of 2012. The Average Days on Market was 126.

Talk to an accountant and see if you have any benefits of renting the property. Does the rent cover your mortgage payments and other expenses.? Do you have a good tenant ? Can you afford the vacancy if house takes time to sell? ... more

You need to enter your question as a totally new post and not piggyback on a post that is a year old and on a totally different subject.

Hi! I'm an agent in Hickory, NC! And I'm not sure if I've yet seen your house. Has your agent had an Realtor Open House, yet? This is a great way for the area agents to view the inventory.

The biggest reason we haven't seen your home is that a buyer hasn't asked us to show it to them. This can be for many reasons. Most of them were just mentioned by these other helpful agents below.

School district, price, square footage, age of home, utilities, proximity to medical name a few. But, the biggest is the unbelievably high unemployment rate we have in the Hickory Metro.

The next problem is the banks. Lenders are reluctant to loan their money and the buyers that do feel confident about their jobs are having to jump through a lot more hoops to get financing. All this slows the process down.

Make your home stand out from the competition and you'll see things happen.

Good luck!

You are in Chicago. The rules may be different her in North Carolina. Also you know as well as any of us. One of the biggest ways agents get in trouble is by speaking for attorneys about law, speaking for home inspectors and builders when we are not contractors. You should know this. The saying goes ' we are a source of the source but not the source." This means dont speak where our license does not allow us to go. We all may have our own opinions. But opinions are not facts. ... more
