I only found out my house is listed for sale when people showed up at my house/doorstep for open house.
I have already reported this scam to the police

Absolutely paint your hall bathroom before you sell. The more neutral, the better. A new shower curtain and bathroom towels help as well!

This is not a condo community. I live here and I am a Realtor. Bethel Grant are townhomes and there is a Homeowners Association but they are not condos.

Hello Sassylady!

My wife and I are in the market for a new and bigger Townhome. We pass by Gwynedale Townhomes everyday on our way to work as we live in Towamencin. We have seen the Dover model in Gwynedale and in Montgomery Greene ( North Wales) as they are both David Cutler properties. We love it, unfortunately two have sold on Kipling Ct. just recently as we would have liked to purchase but we were too late on bidding as they sold. This would be a lovely move for us as we would be able to keep our children in Gwynedd Square Elementary. Please feel free to e-mail if you are seriously putting it on the market, we may can strike a deal without you having to market it. We are very serious, your realtor can contact mine or if you want to discuss anything feel free to e-mail me at ( By the way, our condo is for sale in the MLS listing now, maybe you would like is in a very good neighborhood ( Chatham Village Condos-Towamencin)

My realtor info: Mark Cohen Re-Max Central
Blue Bell, PA (215) 643-3200

Assuming that you have your home listed with a Realtor, you should have a list of homes that are your main competition. Whenever I am counseling a client we always look at the market from the buyer's perspective. What other homes are they looking at and how do we compare?

The other major factor is market time. The most showing activity occurs in the first two weeks on the market, so if the offer is the first one and you have been on the market a couple of weeks, chances are the offer it probably very close to market value. Most home owners overestimate the value of their property.

I would recommend asking your Realtor to talk with the buyer's agent. Ask them how long they have been looking, have they made any other offers, what other homes have they seen in the area (see if any of your primary competition comes should). From those questions your Realtor should be able to determine if they really think that the offer is a fair one, or if they are low-balling you just to see what you will do.

Buyers that are serious (and these folks did write an offer), working with a Realtor that presents the offer that is complete (proof of downpayment, pre-approval letter, earnest money deposit, etc.) should be taken seriously. Buyers who are in the hunt for a home probably have a pretty good idea of market value.

OTOH, if you are selling without professional representation, you are facing some more significant challenges because you will not know the market data that will tell you if the buyers are just playing games.

Good luck.
