If you are considering selling your Big Bear property, then you will need to consider the following question: Do you absolutely have to sell this home? If the answer to this question is “no”, then I would suggest not even trying to sell in the current real estate market conditions.
This real estate market is for serious sellers only. What is a serious seller you might ask? A serious seller is someone who has to sell no matter what is going on with the market. A serious seller is willing to price their property accordingly. I am sure if you survey the majority of sellers that closed escrow on their Big Bear property in December of 2007, they will tell you they are not pleased with the price they got for their property but they were happy to get it sold.
If you are not a serious seller, then you will not want to hear the truth about the price of your property. And trust me, the truth hurts really bad in this market. Today’s Big Bear real estate market is not a market for the “let’s see what happens with this price” type of sellers. We don’t have to wait and see what happens, there enough examples to show us that it will not sell.
A serious seller is willing to do the things that are necessary to get the home sold. This includes making miscellaneous repairs, keeping to property clean, and making it available to be shown at all times.
I am a serious real estate agent and I take my job and profession the same way. If you are serious about getting your Big Bear home sold in this market, feel free to contact me.
