Selling your home is not always convenient although every measure will be taken to ensure minimal disruption. There are several reasons why we recommend leaving during showings.
My experiences showing property have always resulted in the buyer speed-walking through the house, barely looking at anything because “the seller is watching” or “I feel like I’m intruding”. So take a walk, make plans to run an errand, visit friends…even stepping outside or hanging out in the garage make it easier for buyers to see the space and imagine living in it.

The September 2013 Cape Coral market report represents all sales that occurred within city limits during the month of September and are based on averages. Each zip code is represented with total number of sales for both single family homes and condos, the percentage of distressed sales that closed from the total number of sales and average list price to sales price ratio.
Data for our market reports is pulled on the 15th of each month from the MLS for all Cape Coral zip codes to allow sufficient time for all sales to be marked as closed. Our numbers are based on averages, not median values, for single family homes and condos. We have not included any reports for vacant land or new construction but would be happy to provide a specific report for you.

September prices for Cape Coral real estate softened a bit due to an increase in available inventory, which is welcome after months of a very tight market. As we approach season more homes will enter the market to meet increased buyer demand. Typically this does not create any downward pressure on prices since the population swells during winter months.
Prices have increased again year over year – a whopping 21.37%! Distressed inventory continues to shrink (yay!). Average days on market for single family homes is just over two months while condos are sitting a little longer at four months. Pricing is still one of the most important strategies to sell a home.
The 2013 winter season promises to be good for our local housing market. To discuss an aggressive marketing strategy for your home, call us. We would love the opportunity to create something customized for your goals.

How to avoid a “deathmatch” between market value and appraised value?
Do your homework. Look at what has sold or is under contract close to the subject property. I prefer to look at the past 90 days while staying within a one mile radius, two hundred square feet +/-, ten years +/- of when the home was built and the same number of beds and baths. Value adjustments can be made with upgrades such as granite, tile roof, type of hurricane shutters etc.
If appraised value comes in lower than contract price you can:
The last thing anyone wants to hear is that the appraisal came in very low on the home you are either selling or buying. No one wants to sell their home for far less than what it is worth (what a ready, willing and able buyer will pay) nor does anyone wish for someone to overpay for a home.
