FOR SALE for over a year9:55 PM
We've all seen them... houses that have been on the market for over a year. There are plenty of reasons why no one has bought these homes: price, location, curb appeal, lack of updates and so on. Don't be so quick to judge.
Here's one in NYC:
In my experience when a home has been on the market for over a year, it could have more to do with the economic climate. Don't be discouraged when you see that a home you are interested and it has been sitting for a while. It's not always a bad thing (yes, to the seller it's not so great.)
When you spot something that catches your attention, there's a reason you like it. Make sure you do your homework. I strongly encourage you to hire a REALTOR® who will know exactly what to find out for you. You might discover that this home has EVERYTHING you have been looking for.
