I had a former client call on Salem Township real estate tonight. He and his wife currently live in Canton Township but they want to move to a home with more acreage. But to get back to the story he was interested in a piece of Salem Township real estate that had been on the market for 3 months.
It was showing active on the MLS system but when he called the listing office they said it was sold. In the "perfect" real estate world the agent should mark the listing "pending" or "CCS" once they bottom line the purchase agreement. But unfortunately some agents don't do that either out of laziness, out of being too busy, or just trying to get more buyer calls on the property.
So this property was actually sold after I inquired to the agent for him. Sadly he just was browsing through listings and came across it. He really wasn't in the market unless it was a specific property. The typical thing was that the property had been on the market for 3 months. Then in two days the listing agent received three offers.
Then my client became interested in that same piece of Salem Township real estate. So that property sat for almost 3 months without an offer. Then a bunch of offers came in all at once. So if you are interested in a property put your bid in because it's not unusual for "all of a sudden" there are multiple offers.
I've had it happen two or three times on properties that my clients looked at that had been on the market for several months and then other buyers became interested too,
