It's a fast moving market right now. The best best is to get a solid Comparative Market Analysis from a Broker.

That is a loaded question. It depends on location of the property, condition and timing. But right now, properties are going for a premium. The best thing to do is to find a local expert or three and meet with them. Let them go through your home and give you their opinion of value. There will be a range, but it will give you an approximate idea of what you would get if you sold today. Let me know if would like me to be one of the Realtors you meet with. Thanks. ... more

It is a seller's market. A home in very good condition that has been updated and has a low pest report should sell quickly if priced correctly. Your Realtor should be able to show you what comparable homes are selling for in your area and arrange a plan to sell your home. ... more

Dayna I will comment that stages listings are sooooo much more attractive. When I am viewing listings to send to potential clients, the staged listings catch my eye and are the first I send. Kudos to you for putting more effort into your listings! That's why yours are selling for more and faster! ... more

I try to emulate the way an appraiser would evaluate comps. They try to find 3 solds with 3 miles within 3 months, then go further out and then change the stats on the property of interest.
It's hard with values changing for the better. I also prepare my sellers that the comps may be 3 months behind on seeing a boost in values.

The issues you raise are very serious. There are all kinds of things wrong with what happened. You need to get off the internet and contact a local real estate attorney.

Maureen you may want to speak with a local real estate attorney, they can look at local laws and see if what they are doing is legal. You may still owe a commission if you just pulled out. Good luck working things out ... more

Hello Ester,

Any time of the year is a good time to sell. People do move year round. One thing positive about selling in winter, is when buyers are coming to look at your home in the winter, they are usually serious; not just out looking because they are checking out paint colors and decor. If you are considering a sell, we would love to talk with you and answer all your questions. Happy Holidays!

Guy Gimenez answered:
Disclose to whom?

In Texas, the purchaser of an appraisal ordered for personal reasons (vs. qualifying a property for the lender) is not obligated to share that information with anyone. However, should his partner decide not to accept the "seller's" verbal statement of value, that seller can either share the appraisal to prove the value or the partner can refuse to transfer his interest to the "seller." ... more

Price reductions should not happen without your authorization. If this has happened without your authorization your agent has breached his/her fiduciary duties. This conduct is unethical, and should be reported, and corrected asap. ... more

Glen Mitchell answered:
Interview several agents in your area. Quantity doesn't always mean quality. If you have a home thats overbuilt or needs special help getting it sold find someone with the time and experience in dealing with such a property. someone with a lot of listings may not have that time.

Hello Matt,

I have never had this problem before on any condo or townhouse with HOA's. I have represented a buyer with a co-signer. In some cases, I have even had multiple cosigners on the purchase of a condo and townhouse. Also check out my blog (referenced below) on important items to know, about the HOA your considering purchasing in. I work with a lot of first time buyers; feel free to shoot me an email or call me with any other questions.

Best regards,

Douglas Moore answered:
You will generally see a 10-15% price difference based on exact locations, schools and specific parameters of the houses involved. There is a much larger supply of inventory in Concord so the price differential has been expanding over the past 18 months. There are also significant differences as to neighborhoods-- Crystal Ranch, located in Concord, is a Northgate High School neighborhood which is a strong selling point but there happens to be a large inventory there. ... more
