Can I Sell My House In This Market?

Real Estate Agent with Century 21 Moline Realty 40022101

"It is impossible to sell a home in this market."

I'll agree - it's not easy...

...but it's not impossible.  Homes are still selling in Kanabec County.  In the last 6 months, 78 homes have sold in Kanabec County.  (April through October)  The price range of the homes that sold has been as low as $8,000 and as high as $499,000!   The average price of a sale for the last six months is $100,852 with just under 6 months on the market.  Homes are selling! 

How do you compete?  The average price per finished square foot is $61.34.  Simply multiply this number by your total finished square footage for a rough estimate of your home's value in average condition.

Is your home in higher demand?  The homes we see with the most interest right now are homes with 5+ acres and homes that qualify for FHA or other first time homebuyer programs.  To ensure you are competitive, try to take a look at your home as if you are a modern day lender.  Are there any electrical issues?  Unfinished work?  Are you completely free of safety concerns?  You may be ready for market!

When it is time to choose an agent, I hope you will consider my years of experience, Century 21 brand name, extensive online advertising, and cutting edge website.  Feel free to research me - view my blog, facebook page, and website.  I hope to talk to you soon!

Sounds like our market at the beach.  Price per sq. ft. is higher but price has to be right.

Joslyn--It is not impossible...If the seller really wants to sell and the house is properly prepared, priced correctly and marketed well. Having a great agent in this market is essential...one who knows the area and how to get the job done...someone like you! :)
