What’s Sold, and for How Much?
As you get deeper and deeper into looking at homes for sale in Barre and Montpelier, you’re going to want to know what ends up happening to different properties. Specifically, you’re going to want to be kept updated when a home you looked at goes under contract, and, when it sells, for how much. At Green Light Real Estate, we make it easy. There's an automatically updated "sold" search that you can sort by town. Here's how to get to that information. Even better is to talk or email with a real live person who has likely been inside these houses. Either way, get informed.
There are at least two reasons:
- You’re naturally curious.
- It’s probably going to be used as a comparable sale for the house you eventually buy.
The Central Vermont real estate market is pretty lively, but it’s not SO big that the same comparable sales aren’t used over and over. Trust me, you’re going to want to become very familiar not just with the asking prices, but with the prices at which homes for sale in Central Vermont actually closed.
You might also want to know how long a house stayed on the market. It might make a difference if a house sold in 2 days instead of 200 days. I mean, a seller could have just hit the right buyer right away, OR, the market might be suggesting that the 2 day sale was aggressively priced.
Knowing these facts about any target homes can help form the negotiating and initial offer strategy for when you do find the home you want to buy in Montpelier or Barre.
Most of my buyers like being kept informed about relevant sales in the Montpelier and Barre real estate market. That’s one thing that you might expect from a Realtor acting as your buyer broker.
When you want to become an expert in the Montpelier real estate market and the Barre real estate market, when you want to know all about the homes for sale in Montpelier and Barre--be smart. Be Green Light smart!
