woodlea manor: Woodlea Manor: Sell Higher. Negotiate Smarter - 02/13/16 11:20 PM
Negotiating a contract price based on what you “need”, or a value based on the cost of what you have put into the property, will never be a successful strategy. The bottom line is that your Woodlea Manor house will sell for what someone is willing to pay for it. But what if you could persuade a buyer to be willing to pay a price that is very close to your list price? What if you could show that buyer exactly how you determined your price as well as the underlying support for that valuation? Your chances of negotiating a favorable contract … (1 comments)

woodlea manor: Woodlea Manor: It's not always a great time to sell! - 09/09/15 12:11 PM
“It’s a great time to buy or sell in Woodlea Manor.” I saw this quote by a local Realtor and wondered how it could be “great” for both buyers and sellers at the same time. Supply and demand dictates market conditions. At times these market forces are in balance but they will never favor both sides of a transaction simultaneously.
Instead of being a cheerleader for the neighborhood, I prefer to present an honest assessment of how I view the Woodlea market. I’ll be the first to admit there are times when it just isn’t advantageous to be a seller.
