I think that most of the agents posting prior hit a lot of the key points so I won't regurgitate that same information.
I am really wondering if your question is more "of I list my home at a particular time would I be able to sell it easier now or later or ???
So here's the easy answer.
It doesn't matter as far as buyers are concerned.
Midglee, I work with a pile of buyers and in this market right now the only thing that will sell a home has nothing to do with when to list, it has to do with price.
Buyer mentality right now is like sharks in the ocean.
If you have a property priced above 250k your going to have to be patient. This is where most of our market is right now unless you have a 1 million dollar home priced at 500k, then you'll get offers.
Also, depending on what type of property you are selling that will make a difference too.
If you have a horse property in NE Phoenix in the Rio Verde foothills you might be listing that home for a couple years before you draw any interest and again price will be the determining factor.
So, that's pretty much the plan right now and honestly if you were planning on listing your property in a traditional fashion and aren't willing to price it low enough to procure a buyer, don't waste your and your listing agent's time. You'll simply be setting yourselves up for disappointing low offers.
If you can hang on to it for 4-5 years you'll have a better chance of seeing some light at the end of the tunnel.
