Goose Creek Real Estate Showings Report
Is your house being shown? If not, why not? These are a few of the most important questions a seller in today's market can ask. Very few homes are sold without being shown. All buyers like to preview a home before even considering making an offer. It is easy to simply tell ourselves that we are in a "bad market" and that buyers are simply not looking at homes. But, as the graph below show, that is simply not true.
What are buyers looking at? The graph below illustrates that in the first quarter of 2011 there are buyers still looking to buy in Goose Creek South Carolina. The graph breaks the price range in increments of $20K up to $250,000. As you can see the largest percentage of buyers are looking at the two price brackets of $120K-$160K. If you have or had a house in the price range in Goose Creek but had no showings in the first quarter of 2011, here are a few reasons why that could be:
- Bad pictures or not enough pictures in the Multiple Listing Service.
- Location - is your house in a perceived less than desirable location. (Price may need to be adjusted to compensate.)
- Price Per Square is too high - low square footage in a given price bracket will deter buyers from looking at your home.
- Curb Appeal and Condition - many buyers drive by a home before asking their agent to show the home to get a feel for the neighborhood and to get a first impression of the home. The exterior of your home is the first impression that turn some buyers off.
