Terry Bell answered:
Appraisal price is not the same thing obviously as the selling price! Selling price is the market price and what people are willing to pay. If you had it appraised to get refinanced and don't have much equity, then that might be a problem. If you have enough of a cushion to negotiate, then you should be okay. ... more

Why does it sound like you are trying to do this without an Agent?
I don't think you would be asking this question;
You would know about the parts of your Contract dealing with "per diem", and Arbitration/Mediation, and "Notice to Perform".

As Dr. Phil would say; "How's it working for you?"

Pam Ozbun answered:
Having your home "show ready" will always increase the value when selling. Make it look as much like a model home as possible. That means it is spotlessly clean, with no needed repairs and is staged well. Next you might consider any updates that are needed in the kitchen and bathrooms. ... more

Alex Pereira and Secure Realty answered:
any time you have seepage into a basement you want to control it. its not a matter of better return, its a matter of marketability. Very few buyers will buy a home with water issues in a basement. There certainly are homes with water issues but trying to sell one is next to impossible for a good price. ... more

This property is a 3/1 and want to make it a 3/2 or even 4/2 by adding the bedroom and closet to a finished basement with a half or full bathroom to appeal to the general demographic of buyers out there which are mainly FHA buyers and or First Time Home Buyers. I have a tri-level home and it has a walkthrough lower level basement that has a separate entrance to the backyard and a window. I think this would be the best place to add the half or full bathroom and bedroom with closet to the house. I think I can have the work done for around 8K and based off some basic research comps are selling for an increase of 10K. It's safe to say that I would be able to cover my renovation costs with a higher resale price. It's located in the 46226 Devington, Lawrence Township Area. ... more

Lesley Denney answered:
Good morning Mib,

What does it say in your listing agreement that you signed at the start of the listing?
The answer is probably yes. I am sure that your agent has been working hard to find a buyer for you, if you find a buyer yourself that is fantastic, however it does not detract from the effort your Real Estate agent has been making to assist you to sell your home.
First and foremost check your Agreement.

Good Luck!

Sandra Richard answered:
I previously lived in this area and it is safe in my personal opinion. I enjoyed being close to shopping, dining and my children's school. If you are working with a REALTOR s/he can assist you in researching various neighborhood data. I always tell my buyers to drive through a neighborhood they are considering at different times of the day / week to get a feel for the area and also to do a little research on their own. Good luck and congratulations on buying! ... more

You need to have an honest discussion with your Realtor, and most likely they will be sympathetic. They will need to prepare a "Mutual Release" for all parties to sign.

Jody Jones answered:
I provide all of my clients with a marketing plan prior to listing.If you have one, its time to review that with your agent, and find out what their plans are going forward. If you don't have a marketing plan, then I suggest a conversation with them on what they intend to do to increase activity. If they are not responsive, then you may decide to move your listing after you have severed your relationship with the current agency. If you do, interview at least 3 new agents, ask them for an analysis of current market trends, inventories and prices. I know here in the northern part of the state, our inventory levels are still building (not enough buyers) and the prices, have dropped about 20% from 2 years ago. As always, if a home is priced right, it will sell! I would suggest a price drop and keep dropping it every couple of weeks til you start seeing some activity. Even though you may not want to take have to factor in what it is costing you each month in carrying costs. Better to take less and move it quicker.

Good luck in your decisions, I know its not easy!
