I just read an article on the Internet by Kansas City Realtor® Stacy Johnson-Cosby questioning whether a home seller would be offended by a less than full price offer.
This got me to wondering just how many sellers in Brevard County, Florida really expect to receive a full price offer.
In Brevard County, Florida, sellers are routinely getting an average of about 93% to 95% of their asking prices for single family homes. In the Viera, Rockledge and Suntree areas, so far this month (May 30), the average selling price is 95% of list price in Viera, Rockledge and Suntree which pretty reasonable!
I just closed a home in Rockledge for full list price. The reason? Priced very appropriate for the market. Still, my sellers were likely prepared for the reality - most offer less.
So does it disappoint a seller to not receive full price? For sure but most are realistic and expect to negotiate!
