Maine Real Estate For Sale !


The Real Estate Market Dictates The Sale, Not The Seller, Buyer.

The cold hard facts of "this is the reality of the market".

For any type of property listing in the current menu collection of what is for sale today ladies and gentlemen. What has sold in the last six months to a year pretty close to matching the real estate  too. That a seller or buyer both hope to come to mutually agreeable terms. To have a closing. The twists and turns ahead in a real estate sale means roll up your sleeves, hang on too. curves in maine winter road photo

The real estate professional has his or her hands cut out in the matchmaking of the Maine property listings.

Before navigating through the financing sharp curves, pot holes, sudden dips  around blind spots up ahead.

Pole vaulting over legal hurdles. Clearing the deadlines, addressing the personal timing, life situation needs of both the owner and buyer of the real estate. To make it happen for both.

But like a doctor who's announcement on a health concern, a lawyer who firmly informs the limited legal options to a client.

maine jeep photoThe carpenter who sadly announces this roof not only needs replacement, rot under it and costly damage you can not see has happened.

Or the mechanic that points at dangerous problems with the car dangling, up high on the hoist.

Issues that the driver had no knowledge of and is just mad.

Can only think of the overwhelming ching ching to get it down off that lift.

But costly repairs payed for with money he or she does not have. But that just can not be ignored for a fresh, current vehicle inspection sticker. To be peeled, stuck to the glass for all to see. To avoid police tickets or worse accidents caused by the driver that affect them, put others on the open road in danger too.

Sellers, owners of Maine real estate don't always accept at first the price advice. The property listing sale direction steps suggested by the agent, broker, REALTOR.

Because it is not the figure for a sales price they want or are ready to accept. Time to let it all sink it has to happen first.

Read more on over pricing, ignoring the actual Maine real estate market property listing value.

Always amazes me when folks think they can just decide on a price and get it because that's how much they need.

Good morning, Andy....ditto to what Roger said.... not every seller is realistic about their price and not all take the advice of the agent.... and they just sit, even in a seller's market.

Sellers and buyers need Andrew the real estate navigator supreme to help them navigate Maine's tricky real estate roads.

Andrew - Absolutely true.  The market dictates the price of the property, not what the seller needs to make on the transaction.  By the way, that is a nice picture of a country road in Maine in May!

Roger ... Blind means not seeing the market, understanding how it works. Time has a way of improving vision in real estate outlooks.

BT ... what we want, wish for is not what we always get. But do the best with what you have and listen to that real estate professional to guide the process, set the expectations that are realistic.

CA ... You pick up a few insights in the ups, downs, sideway shifts in real estate market cycles over 34 years. Lots of tshirts in the dresser to prove rodeo attendance.

Good morning Andy. Pricing a property correctly isn't always going to be the choice that a seller will make, at that point the agent has a decision to make as well.

Good morning Andy,

Yep, you got this one 100% right.  It really is amazing how many sellers and buyers just don't understand this.  (and argue it)!  Love top photo!!!

Yes, absolutely the way it happens, Andrew.  Until the seller and buyer (and occasionally the appraiser) agree, there will be no deal,

Joe ... To link up or not means can this have a happy ending. If the price of three times the real value is set in concrete, unmovable, smile, shake hands, walk then run away to something you can help out on. That has a ghost of a chance getting to a real estate closing.

Cindy ... They don't deal in the listings knee deep, the over your head and hold your breath properties we wade through. That is why they neeed us.

Gabe ... Appraisers, they have the price lever control and the do this, do that list of devil in the property listing details, updates, program loan compliance issues.

Andrew your title says it all. A very powerful statement at that. Great piece.

Have a nice Friday.

Chasing the market appears to be a favorite sport with some sellers.  Sometimes it takes 12 months to get their attention.  Then they want to put the price where you suggested a year ago.  Guess what!? The market has changed, maybe even dropped a bit, so here we go again!!  Thanks for the post!

S and D ... Atta boy... go get 'em. The truth shall set your seller free. Want to sell, have to price it that way. Or just heading into house heart break.

M Times 2 ... It is not chasing as much as ignoring it. Often thinking my property is the only one out there when it is not. That only my property is the mirror mirror on the wall greatest. It is to them, to others. Well, not so much. What else do you have happens.
