A home on the market that long either has issues with the home or neighborhood or the seller is not motivated to sell. When the seller is not motivated, they will wait for a buyer to submit an offer at a high price - enough to make the seller happy. Any amount below what the seller wants will be rejected. Most realtors try to convince sellers that their asking price is not realistic because it's very difficult to find buyers who will overpay for a home.

In this situation, if you feel the seller wants more money than what the home is worth, walk away and search for a more affordable home.

The list goes on and on. It could also not qualify because of the HOA. There is a required Condo Questionaire. Many items on that list may kill the conventional route. For example I just closed one and the buyer had to change lenders because the HOA did not have enough reserves. ... more

I would take the time to consult with an experienced agent here in the area, preferably myself, and get all your options layed out for you in detail. Once you are prepared to make a sound decision you will be ready to pull the trigger on that one specific property that is that good investment. ... more
