Recreating Yesterday’s Housing Market

<p>(<a href=NewsUSA) – Just a few years ago, home sellers found themselves inundated with above-market offers. Open houses drew many potential buyers, leading to frenzied bidding wars. Today’s housing market looks much more dismal.

In the first quarter of 2008, real estate prices declined 14.1 percent -; the largest price drop in 20 years. According to the National Realtor’s Association, there are now 4.55 million properties on the market. That means that the number of homes for sale far outnumber the people looking to buy real estate.

In a down economy, many people focus on everyday costs, like groceries and gas, rather than large purchases, like homes. But people looking to sell properties can find buyers -; if they can distinguish their home from the other houses flooding the market.

One group of Californian real estate professionals recently published a step-by-step guide for homeowners looking to sell their properties, with or without a real estate agent. Called the “Fast Action Home Sales System,” it helps homeowners feel like they’re selling in an “up” market.

The system teaches sellers to use signs, print ads, a custom-built Web site and their own 800 phone number to capture buyers’ attention. The advertisements lead to open houses, where excited buyers engage in bidding wars. Attracting multiple bids gives sellers the advantage, even in a buyers’ market.

In a down market, expensive, prolonged mortgage costs can destroy homeowner’s personal finances. “Even in today’s market,” says Conrad Kuiken, one of the professionals who developed the system, “we almost always get at least one bid at fair market value.”

Homeowners using the Fast Action Home Sales System typically sell their homes within two to three weeks. A quick sale is hard to make in today’s housing market -; according to the New York Times, there are now enough homes on the market to satisfy buyer demand for over 11 months.

<p>(<a href=NewsUSA) – Buy a run-down building in a nice area. Gut the rooms and rebuild state-of-the-art kitchens and bathrooms. Then sell the home for hundreds of thousands of dollars in profit.

The idea of “flipping” homes appeals to Americans. But for many aspiring flippers, reality does not live up to the expectations created by reality television and get-rich books.

Flippers buy distressed properties in nice neighborhoods. They often run into trouble with contractors to stay on budget for the home repairs or improvements. People attempt to make lavish improvements and don’t realize how much time and money the ambitious renovations will really cost. By the time they sell their real estate project, many flippers barely break even. In some cases, flippers lose money. Sometimes people create a dream property, put it on the market, then watch the home sit for months without exciting buyers’ interests. In the meantime, mortgage costs eat into flippers’ profits.

When it comes to flipping homes, profits depend on quick sales. Before buying properties, people should learn how to sell them. Californian real-estate professionals have created a step-by-step system for homeowners looking to quickly sell properties.

The “Fast Action Homes Sales System” teaches homeowners how to create bidding wars with or without a real estate agent. Homeowners using the guide learn how to attract buyers’ interest with signs, printed ads and custom-built Web sites. The advertisements lead to a frenzied weekend bidding war, giving sellers the advantage.

The whole process, from first step to exit, takes two or three weeks. Before potential real estate moguls invest in a property, they should start planning its final sale -; selling a newly renovated home quickly is key to making a profit-earning flip.
