Can Georgia Foothills Realty sell my house?
The real estate market across the country is in a bad way at the moment because of all of the foreclosures that are flooding the market. A house in Jasper, Georgia that would have sold for 170,000 dollars 4 or 5 years ago will be lucky to sell for 110,000 dollars now. With many people unable to qualify for a home mortgage they might not even be able to buy it then. There are quite a few factors that are affecting house prices in Jasper. Lets say your house is 10 years old but it is still great shape and in a good neighborhood. You have taken good care of it and it still has good curb appeal. It will probably not sell until you knock the price down by about 40 percent of what it should be, because all of the foreclosures on the market have driven down the prices on new homes. Some builders are selling off newly built homes at a price that will only recoup what they spent to build it. They want to get out from under the taxes they are paying on the homes and pay off the building loans. So, an older home, no matter how well maintained cannot compete unless it cuts its price pretty deeply.
This is the reason that you see so many for sale by owner signs popping up. People think that they can get more money out of their home if they don’t have to give a real estate agent a commission. That was a solid plan before the real estate market went bust but today you need professional help. It is too easy to get taken advantage of by people looking for a steal because they know people are desperate. Or your house can get lost amid the many other houses that are up for sale.
The upside for sellers is that it has never been harder to be a realtor than it is now. All but the best realtors have gone out of business. So, if you can find a realtor that has been doing good work uninterrupted for years then you know that they have the knowledge and experience to help you. They also are one of the few companies that use a professional Atlanta SEO Agency to help market your listing online.
