Penderbrook Weekly Report 1/16/09-1/22/09

Relevant Real Estate Information for the Penderbrook Community of Townhomes and Condos in Fairfax, VA


I just noticed that of the 29 homes on the market in Penderbrook 8 of these have been on the market less than 90 days ! The only thing that is moving is bank owned properties and properties where the owner has finally decided to come down in price. So its obvious that you are going to have to come down in price, so why would you want to sit on the market for 120+ days until you bring the price down ? It just doesnt make sense. Yes I know you want to get the most money for your property but letting it sit on the market for 90+ days is not doing so. You miss out on all the prospective buyers in the first couple weeks you are on the market. Those are the most precious days of all the time you are on the market. After your property has been on the market for 60+ days buyers start asking what is wrong with the property, why has it been on the market this long. Believe me I work with buyers every day. All this to say... price your home right from the start and you wont be on the market as long.
