(BETHESDA REAL ESTATE)
Some folks are just great negotiators.  That's a good thing, right?  We all want to get the best deal possible and feel like we won.  Depending on the circumstances, you can negotiate yourself right out of a home with this strategy though.  I know. I've been through it often enough lately...
Here's how the conversation goes:
Client:  I am going to want to really negotiate for this and get the best deal.
Me:  That's great.  What area are you looking in and what kind of price range?

Montgomery County MD Trends - Listings vs Sales AnalysisThe story seems to be same: inventory is up and sales are down!  This is a good visual that shows just how wide the margin is.  I am trying to get the historical data for listings in Montgomery County out of our MLS system so I can show the difference between the seller's market years and today.  You can already see the convergence at the 2005 end where there was far less disparity between what was available vs what was selling.  The numbers this chart represents are:
2007 Listings = 64,744 2006 Listings = 52,605 Up … (0 comments)
