The Question to Sell or Stay?
The effect on the Bozeman real estate market right now are homes are just taking longer to sell. The cause is that there are just not enough buyers also. Why are there less buyers? Well probably because some have already bought their home, some can't qualify for a loan and some are sitting on the fence wondering if it's a good time to buy.
The main reason the buyers that are buying haven't bought your house is because it's probably over priced. This is because of two reasons, lack of motivation and lack of education.
This also has to do with sellers expectations. Sellers maybe know what the home is worth but they are expecting to beat that.
Sellers just really don't believe in the actual value of their home.
Sellers think maybe the market hasn't really affected my homes value.
The lowest level of motivation is they are actually happy in their home, then maybe they should stay.
They want to sell but they don't want to do it at a loss.
The main level of motivation is the "must move" situation. Baby on the way, new job, family change, whatever it is that makes them motivated to sell.
The most serious level of motivation is sellers that are on their way to foreclosure and must sell.
Questions you need to ask yourself if you don't know if you are motivated enough are:
Do I definitely want to move?
Why do I need to move?
What would happen if my home didn't sell?
Am I at risk for foreclosure?
What is the real reason you are motivated? Is it the money? If you think it's because you "need the money" Maybe consider the emotions behind the move rather than the money
- Peace of mind when sold
- Move onto the next home
- Confirm new job
- Children in the school
- Move as a family
- Life back to normal
- No more showings!
