The new year will bring the traditional push and pull of buyers and sellers as they work to establish the value of homes in coming spring market. This home might seem like a bit of a warning to sellers who think the market will take off in the spring. The small foot print of this house certainly does cap the top price a buyer will pay, but this home has a lot of desirable features. The floor plan is efficient with a ranch lay out, the carpets and paint are new, the exterior looks like it is good shape, the lot is flat, and decks have been converted to modern composite with metal rails. This home is move-in ready. There has been no better value for a small home in the last 12 months. I don’t imagine it will stay on the market very long before somebody purchases it.
