Real estate owners everywhere obviously hold out as long as possible before reducing their sale price – attempting to eek out every penny of equity they can from their soon to be relinquished residence.
Just like many over on Charleston’s tip, it’s quite common for East Cooper real estate owners – whether in Mount Pleasant, Sullivan’s Island, IOP, or Daniel Island – to wait as much as 4 months before reducing their initial sale price.
When owners finally give in and do reduce their sale price, most only give in about 10%, and if they’re lucky, their sale is consummated then.
For the unlucky ones still holding on to the real estate they’re now (usually desperately) trying to get rid of, there’s a 50% chance that they’ll wind up reducing their sale price again.
So there you have it, probably pretty common throughout the world, but it is telling to see how long people hold out here in East Cooper before finally caving in to sell their real estate. After all, whether a home, business, or vacant property, it makes sense to get as much as you can for your equity – the question is: when do you cave in and reduce your selling price?
