Neesie,

Homes in Ankeny are currently selling, on average, at 98% of asking price. This statistic does not take into consideration price reductions a seller has made, only the asking price at the time of sale.

There may be other seller concessions not accounted for as well. For example, a seller may agree to contribute money toward the buyers closing costs.

A home originally listed for $205,000 may have a price reduction if not sold. Let's say the sellers reduce the price to $200,000. The sellers accept an offer at $196,000 and agree to pay $2,000 towards the buyers closing costs. Sellers are then netting $194,000 on a home they originally had listed at $205,000. This scenario fits into the statistic of selling at 2% below asking price.

Feel free to call me if you need more information!
