You know an awful lot about the other buyers and I wonder who the agents are working for in your transaction. Seems like a lot of bedroom talk going on, but .......

Hi Eva,
I built my sales business--and now my brokerage-- on geographic (and demographic) farming. I'd pick something that is at "the center of the market" price wise. So, if you're market has a $200k average, find a neighborhood that is at -- or just below -- that price point. Also, look at the sales volume in each neighborhood. Some neighborhoods will have 10% turn over annually. Some might only have 2%. ... more
