The high-end, luxury real estate market in Central Pennsylvania is rather soft presently, and is not expected to improve much, if at all, through 2008. While our market is not in the spiraling decline seen in many other regions, we are experiencing a pronounced inertia in the $500,000+ sale price range.. Market time has increased throughout the Hershey/Harrisburg real estate market with luxury homes languishing on market for up to a year or more. No one wishes to be the purveyor of bad news; however knowledge is power, information an asset. Instead of sitting with your line in the water hoping for a nibble, why not arm your bow's quiver with multiple arrows and pro-actively go after those elusive fish? A new approach and method will win you that Buyer! The more weapons you amass and utilize the better your chances of success!
One weapon you can add to your winning strategy is a Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist. There are very few Realtors in Central Pennsylvania who have bothered to take the advanced training offered by the Institute of Luxury Home Marketing. Laurel recognized a few years ago in the middle of a super heated real estate market that the day would be fast approaching when that market would cool. She realized additional creativity would be required to move homes especially those resting in the higher tier. That day is upon us, and Laurel is ready! She wisely took the necessary course of study, and applied her learning to be able to achieve the requisite number of luxury sales to be certified by the Institute.
Are you considering selling your upper tier home, or are you currently sitting with your line in the water hoping for a bite on your listed home? Stop fishing and grab your bow! A new pro-active approach and a quiver full of arrows are needed! Why not make that pro-active decision and let a Realtor with specialized training market, and SELL your wonderful home?
