I remember as a child going to my grandfather’s small farm although it was big to me. As a short and rather chunky guy – almost said little guy – I would climb on the fence to look out over the fields. The view was a bit better from being on the fence.
Now, fast forward to today, 2010. The real estate market in Brevard County Florida (and elsewhere) has been down for several years. Prices are attractive. Interest rates are as low as ever. The inventory is high. Sellers are negotiating. Bargains exist in short sale properties.
As a real estate agent I have seen a lot of buyers who have been on the real estate fence now for several years. I have witnessed sellers wait the market out as "prices would certainly get better," only to see them sell later at a lower price!
I have seen buyers who sat on the fence waiting for the price on the house they loved to drop – only to have another buyer come along who recognized the value and jumped at it.
As we near the half way point of 2010 I wonder…Is the view better up on that real estate fence?
If you are ready to hop down off the fence, call me at 321-693-3850 or drop me an email. Let's get together to discuss what is really for sale and selling in the Brevard County, Florida real estate market.
Sure you may sell for less but you will also buy much more for less.
