Does it REALLY matter to you? In THIS market? Do you REALLY think it indicates SOMETHING? WHAT?
Let's think about it:
Does the length on the market indicate anything other than, perhaps, it was a very cool (or hot) (or cold or wet) Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter, and home sales were 'off' for a while? Maybe the property was not available for showings due to an illness or med school finals? Maybe the Seller decided to replace some old flooring, or finally pained three pink bedrooms a pretty cream color?
Do you ever know for sure?
Why you even care?
The home we find that is PERFECT for you, is no less perfect if it has not sold yet.
Maybe it's been waiting just for YOU!
If the home has been on the market over 60 days do you think the seller is more desperate for you to make your 'low-ball' offer?
Not likely. After 60 days of vacuuming, cleaning, and 'fluffing' every day, the Seller may be a little more anxious, but usually not in a mood to let you have an extra $xx,xxx of their money!
In fact, an unreasonably LOW offer is more likely to get rejected and result in a MORE stubborn Seller because you've offended them. (We hear about this from our Sellers all the time, so we aren't imagining it!)
Let's find the right home for you.
Then, if we can negotiate a price that's good for you, and the Seller agrees to sell it to you -it'll still be JUST Right!
