A recent report by REDFIN RESEARCH showed that “In August, 26.4 percent of active listings had their prices lowered, the highest in four years” is this a sign of the housing market slowing if not reversing? Daily I see Buyer interest as still strong and investors are still confident that the Single family homes are still a great investment (see my recent blog The future of Single-Family Rental Market is it gone or here to stay ?) So what would account for the 26.4% downward shift in list pricing. We have always known setting a fair asking price from the outset will generate the most activity from other real estate agents and buyers. You will need to take into account the condition of your home, what comparable homes in your neighborhood are selling for, and state of the overall market in your area.
