Trying to sell your Lodi or Stockton area home in a slower market is definitely frustrating. You may find that it takes longer to sell and you cannot get as much money as you could during a booming market.
However, you can’t believe all the hype about a sluggish real estate market. Do your research and separate the facts from the fiction.
You won’t get a decent price.
Your home will sell for whatever a buyer is willing to spend on it. A comparative market analysis (CMA) shows you what other buyers spent on homes similar to yours.
Of course, if you bought your home when values were higher, you may have to take a loss. However, most people can get a fair price and even make a profit in a slower market.
Your home will stay on the market too long.
While it’s true that homes tend to take longer to sell during a slower market, it’s not impossible to sell them. People do still buy real estate in slower markets.
If your home is priced right and properly prepared for sale, you can still sell it within a reasonable amount of time.
Buyers only want foreclosures and short sales.
The truth is that buyers want good deals, and this can be in the form of money or time. The price of a foreclosure or short sale may certainly be attractive to many buyers, but they can sometimes take a considerable amount of time to close while the banks negotiate their terms.
Paying slightly more for a traditional sale is sometimes well worth the time they can save.
