Lets Have Realistic Expectations

Real Estate Agent with Rinehart Realty

It is definitely a buyer's market, but if you don't have realistic expectations as either a buyer or a seller this can be a disappointing time.  Due to the current state of the economy homes are not selling for as a high a price as they may have a couple of years ago.  Having said that, if you are selling and buying you need to remember that even though the house may not sell for the price you are hoping you can recoup on the buyer side of the transaction and end up purchasing more house than possible a couple of years ago.  Be realistic with your expectations and take the emotion out of the deal.  Understand the market in your area and understand that the goal is to offer fair deals to buyers and sellers.  Many people trying to sell their home will believe their home is worth a certain amount without performing due diligence to determine the true value of the home.  This is where a realtor can be an excellent resource in gathering comparable information for one to consider as well as helping to determine the right price for the transaction.  If you are considering selling your home or buying a property give us a call and let us help insure you are getting the best price whether you are selling or buying.

Its been interesting over the past couple of months when dealing with buyers and sellers.  I felt bad last night when I had to send a client information about selling a home themselves because we couldn't find a Realtor in the rural area they are located to take their listing.  I guess its just another casualty of today's market though...
