You bring up a very good point. Out of the 6 homes that actually sold and closed, 1 of the homes sold for $1,000 over the asking price, 3 of them sold for 95% of the asking price, 1 sold for 98% and the other home sold for 97%.
This is where home sellers, in this buyer's market, need to realize that if your home is priced to high their going to have a hard time selling. The average asking price "now" is $424,000. The average asking price of the homes that sold were $363,000. What does that tell you?
Good question and hopefully my answer helped.
Wow, is it normal that the selling price is just 83% of the asking? I was expecting more like a 10% discount, were there outliers (a home that sold for much much less than the asking and is lowering the mean) or pretty much all 6 homes sold from 15 to 20% less than asking?
