Do you see something you like but are hoping for a reduction before you strike? Sometimes the best way to get the best Pine Ridge home is to mosey up to the negotiating table! 10 out of the 32 sales this past year sold for more than 10% off list. 2 sold for more than 20% off list price. Only 1/3 of the homes on the market have made a reduction this year which means you may need to make the first approach or risk losing your favorite property.

You have some great negotiating points and a great selection of product including new construction and tear down possibilities if you want to build your own masterpiece!

Pine Ridge Owners

Based on the increase of market time and inventory levels, buyers aren’t as excited as some sellers are about the 18% increase in average price per foot compared to what sold during the past year. That’s likely why list price to sales price ratios are down 2% compared to last year and market time is up 40%.

Sure, pricing is a big factor but I’m also seeing some terrible marketing mistakes you can avoid which is causing the lengthy market times some of your neighbors are experiencing. Ask me how we sold our latest listing in just 70 days after it was marketed by the largest company in town for over 550 days without success!
