Selling REOs in a Lottery! to Even Out the Playing Field??? - 07/21/09 01:54 PM
I have an idea! Remember when builders of new houses had held Lotteries to pick your house. Why don't we get the banks to do this, for the lower priced houses that have multiple offers on them.

I said "guess" because of what I see happening, latey. Like go WAY over with cash and then let the apprasial set the price. They (0 comments)

This is a reblog and I apologize to those who have read it before. To those who haven't read it, it contains helpful information. Bridging the price gap between home buyers and sellers can be a challenge in today's market. Sellers, many of whom have a hard time accepting that their home has lost value, often expect to sell for more than buyers are willing to pay.Buyers, on the other hand, are concerned that home prices could drop further. So, they're making sure that they don't overpay.There are exceptions to the rule. Very desirable homes in the best locations sometimes sell (0 comments)
