“What if you can't sell your property”


“When a market starts to turn, it doesn't have to be quick. It's more likely to be slow and painful – like boiling a frog. (The idea goes that a frog would jump out if it were thrown into a pot of boiling water. But if it's put into a pot of cold water and then the heat is turned on, the frog could not judge the threat.) In fact, economist Gary Shilling wrote in Forbes magazine last September, "History also suggests that a housing boom does not have to end violently.”

If you can't sell - you are priced too high. Very simple, lower your price if you are seriously tring to sell.

Unlike some real estate "investors" when the water gets a little too hot, the frog actually does get the hell out.

When a frog gets uncomfortable with a situation it has the sense to move on.

FYI, Ed, the MLS I check has been quite balky. Monmouth County's MLS system seems to have some sort of server problem.

Well duh. A company that builds & sells homes is OBVIOUSLY going to tell people that ANYTIME is the "right" time to buy. It is their business. What should they say, "Wait, because prices around here are sure to fall"?

Yes Lindsey, the MLS seems to be acting up this week. Strangely, this happened at about the same time last year.
