Is it really a buyers market? Not necessarily. There are MANY sellers out there who don't have to sell, and WILL get fair market value for their home. The national media has been pounding this notion into the public's head for a few years now, that you can get great "deals" on homes, but that's just really not the case the majority of the time here in central Ohio. Sure, you'll come across some sellers who are in situations where they HAVE to sell, and at times, for much less than it's worth, but this is not the majority by any means! If the bank is the seller, that can be a different story, but even they usually have the home priced very low for a quick sale. Just something to think about on this fine summer Thursday!
