WHAT'S AN AGENT TO DO???
Buyers are coming back, but inventory is soooo limited. If the buyer is not a canidate for a foreclosure or short sale; there's not much to show. Our market is a forelosure/ short sale market,. Sellers don't want to compete with those foreclosure prices, so they're holding off.
Last week-end my phone began to ring and when the sun rose on Monday, I had 4 new buyers. One was looking for a foreclosure. Another couple had sold their home in just 8 days, so we had not had time to explore the market. Now their home is sold and there are just a handful of home on the market that met their criteria.
A young couple wants to buy a second home about a 2 hour drive from their current home so they can be closer to their work.
The fourth one is a first time buyer wanting to take advantage of the FIRST TIME BUYER'S TAX CREDIT. As you know, we have to find THE house, get financing & close by November 30 for them to get the credit.
I'm certainly NOT complaining; but it'd be nice if I had more inventory. I always go directly to the MLS system and show every listing, regardless of whose listing it may be.
SO, PLEASE, SELLERS. WE NEED YOU. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN SELLING YOUR HOME, CALL ME!
