Hi there!

I was just curious? Since I have my house up for sale in 27519 area code. I have seen a slow down in showings over the past couple weeks. My real estate agent is seeming similar response from other agents.
I guess we can't predict the market but I was under the impression with it being a sellers market and summer homes move fast.

I'm in 27519 and a house in my neighborhood went up for sale and then under contract within 2 days. There were lots of people,looking at it. What price point are you at? That's probably the key factor.

^^^This. The are flying in my neighborhood as long as they are in good condition. The ones that need updating, do not move as quickly.

How long has your house been listed?

I think things might be a little slow right this minute because we just had a holiday weekend, but if your house has had very few showings lately and it had more before, and it's been listed awhile, maybe it's the price?

We certainly need to know more about the Op's house. Single family or townhouse, age, general price range.

BITGOD ("back in the good ol days" aka pre-2014), the market took a breath from the day traditional calendar WCPSS let out until the Sunday after July 4 - that's 4-5 weeks of folks cycling through taking their summer vacation. Didn't mean folks quit buying, but a significant portion of the market of people who were already residents took a break then.

I think I'll start using BITGOD more. it's kinda catchy

2 story 2 car garage home 3000+ sq feet. 450k+ price range. Its been on for just over a month
Initial it received 2 offers in its first 5 days. We accepted 1 of the 2 and it went contingent for 2 days. The buyers backed out and we had to placed it back on the market at that point the 2nd buyer had found another home. Since then its been a bit slow showing. All the feedback provided for showings have been positive.

Without straight out providing the listing its 8-9 years old. In very good condition in good neighborhood
Priced at roughly $145-146 per square foot. We lowered the price once already as both us and our agent agreed it was listed a bit high.
Considering lowering again but our price per square foot seems to be about average with other homes in the area.
What do you guys think?

PS: Appreciate the help!

If I'm looking at the right listing, I'm guessing sloped yard and proximity to a busy road may be turning some buyers off. If I'm not looking at the right listing, then I have no idea lol

The house in my neighborhood that went under contract in two days happened on Sunday...so the holiday weekend. There were quite a lot of people looking at it judging from the cars parked. It's the same sort of price range. This house also has a very fishbowl backyard....several homes overlook it.

I think sometimes people just click with a house right away. It's coincidence, not that that particular house is so great. I have seen houses sell instantly and I could NOT figure out why they would. Price seemed a bit high compared to similar homes, lot didn't seem as nice, etc. You never know what people will want.
