Sellers within the 2009 market are concerned with their net proceeds if they do decide to move, as they should be. However, the savvy Seller will quickly recognize that even though he or she will really see a benefit years down the road on the purchase of a new and better home.
When my past clients contact me in the future to sell and remind me that they purchased in 2009, I will know their investment will have done well. The market does not reach the type of bottom we see today very often, so if someone can buy in during this time, he or she will see a very positive return in the future. Not to mention, these Buyers will enjoy an upgraded residence and a sound investment.
