Well Chummy, the delay in the sale of your Maine home, the house you own and wish you didn't so you could move on.
Actually it is always a bunch of factors. Not excuses, but hard science. There are lots of reasons why the sale of your Maine home is not happening.
Maine real estate property listings operate in a market, not a vacuum.
Good for buyers, sometimes for sellers. Often for both if the property listing scales are balanced.
But supply and demand have a play, quite a say in how the real estate movie ends and when do we get up and head for the parking lot.
Timing in life is everything, real estate, Maine home sales too.
Lots of areas you can speed up the process of a Maine home sale.
Some issues you can tighten up and address. Curb appeal, squeaky clean. Quick occupancy and the end all what to stick on the place for a property listing price.
But the bigger picture of the local economy, not just what they preach on television, in newspaper headlines and blog posts about one big real estate market. How's it doing?
National is not local in real estate dog and pony; market conditions vary.
National is big and far away, local is up close and personal. The country, World is one big place. Real estate is local. Happens on the home front in small communities in Maine.
Not a national stage with one size fits out gospel. Just like weather forecasts.
The Miami Beach one is not the same as downtown Houlton Maine. Something about location, location, location.
The way the wind blows and longitudes, latitudes. Real estate appraisals are valid for six months to a year max. Why?
The snap shot of the market changes. New slides, listings, sales get put in the carousel.
So how's the Maine real estate market, are homes selling?
Three closings this week can make some raise eyebrows. How can that be if where they are located certain parts of the market are squealing "oil can, oil can"?
Frozen, stopped. Don't blame the market as one big animal to wrestle.
And realize which type of Maine home you are listing, that is under the microscope with the twin side screws. Being adjusted, twisted and tweaked, rolled for the focus, clarity. Can all have a big bearing on what you are going to see on the slide.
In the what time do we sit down and sign all the paperwork that means three more dead trees?
The how long before we get front row seats to a real estate closing for our home question on every home owner's, house buyer's mind.
A local real estate professional sees the market that is. Navigates, guides and sets the expectations in the sale of a Maine home or any type of property listing (hint hint nudge nudge).
