Dear Jessic,

At the moment, there are no 3 bedrooms apartments in the Ironbound Section on the market. I will keep checking for you and I will notify you as soon as something shows up on the market.

Thank you,

That is [most likely] because the Price is Unrealistic.

Over-Priced houses will not get any traffic; Real Estate Agents will be hesitant to show them.

They will not appear in the Search Results when Buyers are on the Internet, and if they do, the Buyer will usually hit the Back Button.

There is a principle in Real Estate Appraisal known as "Conformity". A house will not be worth more than other comparable houses in the same area; it will "conform" to the prices of the comps. If an Offer comes in at the over-price, the house [will probably not] appraise.

When you put your house on the market Gary, set a Realistic Price based on Comparable Sales. If you do not have very recent comps, talk with a Real Estate Appraiser about what the house should be priced at.

Best wishes to you,
