I just got off the phone with one of our other agents from down in South Alabama, Rick Bourne. He was telling me that he was having some of the same things happen to him and his listings that I have written about before on this blog. He has sold two properties this week, within a couple days of putting those listings on the market. So in the past month, at least 4 of our agents have put properties on the market that sold very quickly. I might add that none of these properties were distressed situations. All of these were listed at fair prices, by sellers that had educated themselves about the market.
Good Properties + Reasonable Pricing = QUICK SALE
If you see a good property at a reasonable price that fits your needs, now is the time to buy it. The line of thought that is being propogated in the media that says you can’t even give away property is just wrong. There are buyers in the market. Savvy buyers. Buyers that know the time to buy is when everyone else is selling. Dollars will be made on the purchases made now.
