Sellers Greed Is Not Attractive

Real Estate Agent with Realtor DRE# 3163817


It's a sellers market in southeast Florida, no doubt about that. The inventory of homes is so low, buyers are fighting over available properties. Sellers are actually asking more for their homes than it will appraise for and can do this because buyers are willing to pay. But it takes a good real estate agent to educate the sellers on where to draw the line. This kind of market has gone to too many homeowners heads. Some have found out, though, you can still overprice. They have pushed the envelope too far and it has put them in an awkward position. You can not allow greed to take over or you'll be left like a sitting duck.

Buyers know it's tough out there but their still not stupid. Most are willing to bring some cash to the closing table because they understand prices are rising. They know it's better to pay "a little extra" now than "a whole lot" later. But they're not going to bring the whole bank.  In this real estate market, you need an experienced and professional Realtor to sell your Broward County home quickly, professionally and provide a profit for you. A good professional, in southeast Florida, needs to study the sold properties and see what the percentage of price increases are. They can tell you where prices are heading and how fast. It's all in the numbers. But the increases are like steps on a staircase. Not giant leaps on a jungle gym! When a hurricane is coming, local business are warned against gouging. The same goes here. Don't let greed get the best of you.

Terri, it's easy to see a second 'bubble' being created. When the sellers suddenly awake to find their 'castle' isn't worth what they think it is, and the buyers in the market opt to purchase new builder inventory, or choose to wait until the realty hits and the second bubble bursts, it will be too late for these sellers. We depend on snowbirds and foreign buyers in our market, drive them away with high prices will serve no one. Thanks for sharing!

Yes, Norman, I see it going that way. But "when" is the question.

You are so right.. Greed of any kind is not pretty.  And others do notice when someone is greedy, it does not go unnoticed.
