Newer Listings Versus Older Listings In Seattle Real Estate

By: The Dave Hanson Home Team
SEATTLE - Aug. 13, 2013 - PRLog -- Are new Seattle real estate listings ( better than homes that have been on the market?   I want to share some of my own thoughts about what’s good, what’s bad, and relate a few distinctions between the new MLS listings and the already seen or "picked over" listings:


Newer Seattle Real estate listings

The brand new listing is  like seeing a new movie just coming out; fun & exciting.  You don't know if it will be good or bad.  You will come to a conclusion somewhere in the process.

You want to know home prices well or you might be overpaying.

More buyers means more competition.

Seller is less willing to lower the price because they just put it on the market.

These might be good deals because the good ones go fast.


Older Seattle real estate listings inspire questions

Buying a home is mostly about feelings. The natural question comes to mind that if all the other buyers have passed it up "why do I want it?".

Another question in the same sense; "What is wrong with the house if on the market for a long time?".

"Is the price too high?"  Price is usually what keeps a home from selling.  Maybe it is priced just high enough to discourage offers.

"Are the sellers open to negotiation?"  ASK! ASK! ASK!  maybe the timing is right for you when it wasn't really right for previous buyers.  The seller might be in a desperate situation.

"Is a change in the Floor plan a reasonable possibility?" - if it can be fixed, it could be a great home.

"What discount can be negotiated?" If it is not in move in condition, and  it might require more work, what is the seller open to?


Remember that "there is no harm in asking, and that EVERYTHING is negotiable".
