Piedmont currently has 24 active listings. While the beginning of the year saw a build-up in inventory as Buyers waited out the market, Piedmont activity has now settled into a more consistent rhythm of listing-to-pending sales. Buyers continue to be attracted to our wonderful community and that's great news!
Still, strategic pricing has never been more important. Price your home sharply and the market WILL carry it where it should go. Price your home too high and you are likely to be penalized as you chase the market downward.
If it is underselling you are worried about - avoid overpricing! This is where the real danger of selling a home "under value" truly lies.
While we are speaking of well-priced properties, Anian Tunney brings to market a terrific opportunity at 310 Highland Avenue. This 3bdrm/2bth home in the center of town is ready for your vision and is close to schools, the park and Mulberry Market. If "fixers" are high on your wish list, this house is definitely worth your consideration. Continuing on the theme of "fixers," the new listing on Howard Avenue offers 3+bdrms/1+bth, sunny breakfast room, lower level plus rooms and original architectural details. At $775,000, this home is currently the least expensive listing in Piedmont.
(Although the home on Howard Avenue represents the least expensive property in Piedmont, the best "value" is Carol Brown's listing at 21 Park Way. Do the math. Across from Dracena Park and centrally located, this home may offer the best upside potential of them all. )
