Any damage made to the property will be who's responsibilty? What if the buyers decide to walk just after that one year? Nothing can force them to close! What if prices are higher? You may want more...what if prices drop? Buyer may want to pay less. ... more

I will be in Wilsonville again tonight showing a property, would you like me to drive by and give you any idea?
Without getting a visual and feel for your property it would not be a fair guess what a good price would be.
Just let me know and I will swing by your property and get back with in the morning.

Hi - I just did a quick check in the multiple listing and found your home for sale. It's absolutely gorgeous and looks like you're already priced under what you paid for it 3 years ago and are priced considerably under the 2 other similar homes for sale right on your street. I pulled similar comps around you (priced between $500,000 - $800,000 and having between 2,800-3700 square feet) and came up with this rough scenario: There are 15 similar active listings (yours included) showing being on the market an average of 61 days so far and the average list price is $612,507, there are 2 pending sales with an average list price of $599,000 and an average of 121 days on the market prior to an offer, and there are only 4 similar homes that have sold in the past 6 months at an average price of $625,250 - but they were only on the market an average of 28 days. From what I can see - it looks like many of your major competitors are new construction homes in the Villebois & Arbor Crossing subdivisions. They don't have a ton showing as active - but my guess is that they have only a sampling for what's for sale in RMLS and have many to choose from on site.....the cheapest active listing they have on RMLS that's similar to your home is listed at $549,900. That listing hit the market 1 year ago and started at $599,900 and there's no sign of it having had any pending sales. In most instances, even though your home is fairly new, a buyer will pick brand new construction over a home that's been lived in almost every time. Renaissances homes are of superior quality - but with jumbo loans much harder to get and rates starting to go up a little - a cheaper similar home will be an easier sell. The 3 things that effect a home selling are always Location, Condition & Price.......realistically you are optimal for all 3......but the only one you can play with is the price. Choices are to keep dropping the price and write off the loss, or offer something the other homes do not.....I've seen people offering a trip to Hawaii as an incentive, Plasma TV's, etc. Another option to think about would be to offer to carry a 2nd, or sell on a lease option - a little riskier options though.

Bottom line is - what's it costing you each month to keep this house and how long can you continue to do that......even if it were to sell today - you'd be looking at paying on it for at least an additional 30 days. If you were to decide that you could keep paying for around 4 months more (as an example) - I would take what you would spend over those 4 months on this home, split that amount in half - and drop the price by that much. Right now you are priced over the average so your market time will take a little longer than average. If you get below that average list price you could potentially see a much quicker sale.

I hope all that helps and I wish you the best of luck in getting sold!

Debby - I'm not sure Trulia will let you post directly BUT you can do it by using a different free service. Go tohttp:// orhttp:// Each site will let you create a free account where you can then design a beautiful web flyer for your home using their templates. They will submit your site to many different web sites that feature homes for sale. Trulia is one of them. You can also use the flyer with Craig's List. Although I am a Realtor I certainly understand the desire to sell your home yourself. It's worth a try. I had clients In Wilsonville, close to Xerox that I helped purchase a home before they sold the Wilsonville home. The market was very active in their neighborhood at the time and their plan was to try selling themselves for a week before I put it on the market. It sold within a few days. I will be happy to email you some recent comps - "active", "pending" and "sold" - which should help you in pricing. Use good photos, be descriptive and good luck. ... more
