What is the "hottest" price range for homes on DI? What styles and price points are in the most demand.

They aren't really selling. That's the problem. I have a home for sale on DI in the 400-500 range and little to know action. The sellers need to sell before it goes into SS or foreclosure. But aren't being realistic in price, therefore not getting many showings.

I wouldn't consider $200+ per square foot a deal price point. That's the norm on DI...not a deal.

I have been there & it seems really nice. Why are they not selling in your opinion or in your experience? Has the influx to Charleston slowed down with the economy?

There are lots of buyer out there but they are being more "smart" looking for deals and since there is a lot of inventory lots to choose from. This house (listed by someone on my team) is listed high. I think if they would lower their price they would get more showings.

IMO The influx has not changed. Ready willing and able buyers- not as much many have to sell to buy.

DI isn't exactly a place to look for starter homes either. So the tax credit doesn't help as much.

More Smart? Should it not be smarter?

Maybe if the Stealtors would learn how to spell and price homes correctly we could get rid of all this inventory. Deleveraging is the problem not buyers being "more smart." The prices of homes have dropped and the purchase price today means short sale or foreclosure because some STEALTOR told the buyer in 2005-08 that "Real estate never goes down in price. It is a great time to buy!" Most sellers are upside down because they listened to their Stealtor and dumb ____ mortgage broker.

Now the stealtors are short sale/foreclosure experts on the same home they sold for 30-40% more during the boom times. That should be a crime! The realtors should cut their 6% commission in half to help clear out some inventory. What do you say Stealtors?

Just remember one thing"
Greed IS Good!

I am not going to play your games. I am not going to name call, you make yourself look bad without any help from me or others. I guess thats why you are so anonymous and I am not. I am proud of who I am and do not hide my identity.

And by the way, I spelled more and smart correctly. My grammar may have been incorrect. Oh well.

It is interesting to note that out of the 14 posts of GordonGekkoSC on this forum, 13 are negative, demeaning and/or critical. The use of the word "Stealors" may be an indication of an inability to communicate one's position and/or opinion in an objective and factual manner. From the comments it appears obvious that GordonGekkoSC may have a limited grasp of the real estate profession as practiced by most Realtors, as opposed to the practices of some real estate agents. It is also not unusual for one to make negative generalizations of members of a profession, when they may have a bad or perceived experience with such a professional such as a Realtor, real estate agent, lawyer or even a doctor.
