How to Find the Best Home Deals on the Web


There are still great buys even in a seller’s market

Do you think you’ve been priced out of an area? Been looking for a long time?
Desperate times deserve a different kind of strategy.

Don’t you think?

You should try a different kind of search for low inventory situations,
here’s why…

Real estate reporting is all well and good but the actual stories are about 3 months behind what’s actually happening.

Yes, inventory is at a 20 year low but home sellers have gotten over zealous on pricing. Many propertied are priced too high. And reductions are happening fast and furious.

For example, a 7 day market watch reveals 2,228 homes taking price reductions in the DFW area.

In simple terms it means the market has slowed a little and buyers are not snatching up homes like they were 3 months ago.

At least not for over priced homes.

Sometimes price reductions are taken in a few days other 30 to 60 days. It depends on the seller.

It pays to go back and look at homes that have been listed for awhile, under active option or pended status because homes do fall out.

Buyer change their mind, can’t get financing, relocation did not go through. Another scenario that’s happening quite frequently is buyers are having to compete with multiple offers and get caught up in the game and then decide the home is not for them. Sound familiar?

It happens everyday.  What’s the solution for a home buyer?
How do you find the best home deals on the web?

A price reduction search is the way to go. You can find interesting homes that just haven’t sold or fell out. I’ve seen foreclosures in prime locations pop up. These will need some work but the location is prime.

Most home searches allow for this kind of search. Not a third party national site but a local real estate website has the most accurate data.

For example: here’s a search for price reductions at 5% or more in Plano homes for sale and real estate. or you can look at some below…

Plano Homes with 5% Price Reductions Last 30 Days

Any price adjustment is big in real estate but 5% is a nice cut. Maybe the home was priced too high or you just have a serious seller. Generally, pricing a property right will get it sold quicker. If you find one you like click the address bar for more information or search by map, either way you’ll have accurate listing data on Plano price reductions.
