Real Estate in Monmouth County Today!

Real Estate Sales Representative with Remax American Realty Assoc.

The past month, what I am seeing is a lot of houses going under contract but with a lot of bidding wars.  The ones that are smart and price their home to sell are experiencing these bidding wars.  The sellers are still not realistic about what their home is worth.  We are now in a normal market.  What we experienced the last couple years was a 35% increase per year, which is crazy.  And now that the market has stabilized, the sellers don't want to realize that they are overpriced.  They think if they hold out, their property will go back up to those numbers.  That is not going to happen for a long time.  So if you are thinking of selling, now is the time.  Even if you look at your return on investment at the present time, many times it is a 50% return per year since the first year they purchased the home.

As far as buyers are concerned, they are also unrealistic.  They think they can come in with very low offers and the sellers are going to be desperate and take it.   That's not happening either.  Probably the only one's who are desperate, are in foreclosure!
