Condos Are Selling Fast In Mukilteo, WA.

I’ve noticed something interesting happening lately, especially at the Mukilteo condo community, Front 9.

Real Estate owned homes aka REO are priced below the market, and buyers are buying fast.

Buyers are not just sitting on the fence.
I have seen several properties receive multiple offers before they go pending.

More scientifically:

  • Days on market is down
  • Inventory is way down
I don’t know, I don’t have a crystal ball. I’m not a psychic, I’m not even an economist.
Here are the facts though…
There are about 140 units at Front9. Since these condos were converted in 2006, a big chunk of the Front 9 homeowners bought during the peek of home prices-2006 and 2007. Yes, a large percentage of said condo owners owe more than what it is worth. Many people are in this boat.
But, nobody who bought a resale or a bank owned property in Front 9 over the past 18 months has anything to complain about. 24 units have sold since mid 2010. Days on market has been shrinking ever since. Over the past quarter, the average number of days a Front9 condo has sat on the market is just 36.
The neighborhood is solid, the units are cozy and upgraded. Boeing is just down the road, and so is the freeway. Plus, the golf course is the backyard of these condos! You can probably see why things are looking up at Front9! For such a big condo complex, there are generally very for sale at one time.

The Future Of The Gardyn

I don’t know how to say this or create a great lead in…so……

I will no longer be selling real estate in the Madison, Wisconsin area.

I have been offered and accepted a position being a Keller Williams Team Leader in Everett, Washington, which is just north of Seattle. KW Everett is a 106 agent real estate office and we have some aggressive goals to grow to 300 agents. My role as KW Team Leader is to inspire our agent partners, lead the company to growth and market dominance, serve our agent partners in the growth of their business and succeed with them by sharing our profits.

So the last couple of weeks I have been chatting with some real estate bloggers about what to do with The Gardyn. I got their input, now I would like yours.

What would you like to see happen to the Gardyn? Leave a comment or email me darin@edynrealestate.com

5410 Tonyawatha Trl, Monona Wisconsin w/ Lake Monona View

Sunset from our house

This is the view from your new home. No kidding. That really would be your view!

Now, I normally don’t promote listings in my blog posts on The Gardyn, but we have discovered a new marketing platform that we are really excited about and thought we would test it out on ourselves first.

We start by creating a website for the home that we marketing

For example  www.5410Tonyawatha.com

Now through this website you have all sorts of cool tools and gadgets for marketing.

We upload a marketing flyer to craigslist http://madison.craigslist.org/rfs/597980854.html , now this isn’t just any craigslist posting, it has clickable links and takes the prospective buyer right back to the listing website we created.

The listing also gets sent to trulia, google base, oodle, propsmart, homescape, vast and local.

The next step in the marketing plan is to promote the home and domain address www.5410Tonyawatha.com through the use of GoogleAdwords.

Now you’ll notice if you visit the website that we created for 5410 Tonyawatha that it is not just about the home. A home buyer can find info about the area schools and all local amenties.

That’s not all. The website is set up to track data such as site activity, page activity, key word searches, website referrers and all raw stat info. And we can send a daily email to our seller’s, if they so wish with all this info. Now, as a seller you don’t have to wait for info just on how many showings or feedback after showings, you can have instant feedback about the marketing of your home.

There are so many other cool things that we can do with the website and tools, and we will be happy to show you at your listing presentation. Contact us at edynrealestate@gmail.com or call us 608-333-5915

Madison, Wisconsin Foreclosures

TCT reports,

Dane County had 127 foreclosure filings in January, 45.9 percent more than the 87 in December, 122.8 percent more than the 57 last January, and 746.6 percent more than the 15 in January 2006.

Wisconsin had 2,102 foreclosure filings in January, 20.5 percent more than the 1,744 in December, 58.4 percent more than the 1,327 last January, and 428.1 percent more than the 398 in January 2006.

Homeowners ARM’s are increasing, heat costs are rising, gas is eating into people’s budgets. I don’t think we are going to see Madison foreclosures going away anytime soon.

Keep in mind that builders, developers and investors can also be foreclosed on. Their inventory adds to these numbers. Like the Metro Place downtown Madison foreclosure.

If you are facing foreclosure TALK with your lender. They are not your enemy. Believe it or not, they don’t want to foreclose on your home. The process costs them money, money they already invested in you and your home. Start the conversation to see what you can do to keep your home.

A Letter To All Realtors

Dear Realtors,

Some where along the way we stopped selling homes and started selling houses. There is a big difference. I think we need to go back to selling homes.

Sincerly,

Darin Persinger
