Though I don't like the house, I love your blog. I just found it today. I appreciate your honesty. As someone who is actively searching for a home in Jacksonville, I have found that most Jacksonville agents continue to lie about the condition of the market. I believe you will build a stronger business with honesty.

Hi David. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am sorry you don't like this house! My seller is getting very discouraged :(
I just can't figure this market out! This home is the very best value in the area and still, no buyers. Lots of lookers, just no buyers. I think when the market finally settles down, this home will sell fast. We'll see!
In the meantime...let me know if I can help in your home search. I would be happy to keep an eye on MLS and send you info that matches your criteria via email. Let me know if you'd like my help.

You would probably have more luck if you lowered the price. Having been in this neighborhood and many others I know I can get a much nicer home in a much nicer neighborhood for less than $200k. Buyers are much more savy than RE Agents give them credit and have lots of tools available for their home search. Knowing this, why would I even look at this one when it is VERY overpriced for our market.

All we can go by are the hard numbers. A CMA on this listing puts it below market value. These are just cold, hard numbers based on SOLD property, not based on "asking price". My next step is to get an appraisal. Based on SOLD property they will use for comps, the house should appraise for around 230-240K. We don't want to be the first one in the area to help with the big "adjustment" :) We priced it below market value hoping to sell it fast. We'll just have to wait and see what happens.
Where are the areas that you speak of? I'm not familiar with any areas that have listings less than 200K that are anywhere as nice as this listing in Ashwood. All of the subdivisions along the Kernan corridor are well above 200K. Where are you seeing these nice homes in nice subdivisions for less than 200K? I have a few clients that I'd love to take into those neighborhoods. I haven't had much luck in my search for homes less than 200K. They want a home 10-15 years old, easy commute to Deerwood area, newer schools, and updated interior. I have found LOTS of condos, but no single family homes that they've liked. Thanks for the tip. I look forward to your comments! :)
