"By July 1, it's definitely over..."


...So say RE Agents trying to get their homeowners to realistically assess the market, the economy, their potential buyers, and, of course, their properties.

You don't want your house to stall in the current selling season, where nationally 40% of annual sales take place...and if your house is still without a new owner after being listed at the beginning of the May season, well...you could be heading into the next season, unsold.

Read about a slow market here. While the article concerns New Jersey, the stories sound familiar: buyers waiting for lower prices while sellers refuse to go lower because of their own financial commitment in the property or blind optimism about a market turn or sometimes, sadly, just because they loved the house so much....
