Trying to keep asking price low as possible, argument for selling by agent vs owner, success rate?

Answer

No matter the market conditions there are two reasons as to why a property does not sell. First is location and second is price. You cannot change the location of the property but you can adjust the price to where it needs to be to get the property sold.Your question asks if you should use an agent or try to go FSBO again. My advice will always be to use an agent.

what does make me move mean?

Answer

Hi Beachcombers,I just checked the MLS on this property again. It is not currently listed with an agent but it does still have a make me move icon attached to it here on Zillow which tells me that they will likely consider selling if the offer is right for them. If you would like to consider making an offer on this house but do not feel comfortable doing so without representation, please feel free to call me as I will do my best to assist you. All my profile information is current and I am a licensed Real Estate Agent and Realtor.

How many months does it take for Zestimate to reflect a sq footage increase?

Answer

 If you would like an accurate and fair home value assessment please call a realtor. Do not rely on the zestimate as there are just too many variables that can influence value in this very sensitive sellers' market.Is your home currently on the market? Where is it located? I am happy to assemeble a free CMA (comparable market analysis)  for you if you like. I specialize in Kitsap County. [content removed by moderator]

Which are the nicest areas around Bremerton and which areas should we stay away from?

Answer

Greetings Pastill,I am an experienced realtor who was born and raised in western WA and loves this area. I currently live in Kingston ( very northeren Kitsap County) but lived in Poulsbo for 7 years. I think you will be pleased with what you will find in several parts of the county. North Kitsap school district is one of the best in the state, access to freeways and ferries is relatively easy and the views ae phenomenal. Central Kitsap School District gets high marks as well.I currently have 2 chilldren attending high school and middle school in the NK district. I have worked with many families making the transistion across the country and understand what a huge undertaking it is for them. There are several areas in all parts of the county that would work well for a commute to the Naval Station.Working with an agent on your behalf can really help to make the most of your time and help to relieve some of the stress involved with some of the intricacies of a cross country transaction.Feel free to give me a call as I would be very happy to assist you in whatever capacity I can. (360) 621-7131.We will find a house that is right for you and your family. Cheers, Jeri

How can i avoid the PMI payments?

Answer

I understand you can avoid PMI ( Premium Mortgage Insurance.) by having a 20% down payment.I know many people don't have that much working capital, I suppose that was why the 80 / 20 loans were so popular for awhile.Why not contact a lender and find out what they can do for you with today's market conditions?

1st time home buyer

Response

Now is the time to buy!  Prices are low, rates are low, sellers are motivated, agents are eager, what are you waiting for? I do not have a crystal ball to see into the future to tell you what home prices will be like a year from now but I do know what is happening out there right now. It's simple, loads of inventory means lower prices. Oh yes, and the 1st time home buyers' tax incentive, $8,000, that is incredible. This program has been implemented to help people such as yourself.A good agent will help you navigate the path to home ownership in this market. Give me a call, I will.   ~ Jeri
