Updates And Changes In The Tallahassee Real Estate Blog
Quite a bit has occurred in the past ten days. I pulled a few all-nighters this past weekend to change the way our real estate graphs will display, showing information going back as far as 1991 now in most of our displays.
Simultaneously, it appears our site got so bugged-up that we had to rebuild it. A few past blog articles were lost and all of them seem to have a new url (the address that people have to visit to view each specific article). With all this going on, I have been trying to get things "back to normal" and start to get our reporting on schedule.
Today, I'll show you a glimpse of the new real estate graphs which unfortunately show some startling news that won't sit well with you if you have a home to sell in Tallahassee.
Tallahassee Home Sales Off To Worst Year On Record
For those of you who try to make a living in the real estate industry, you know last year was the worst year on record in the Tallahassee housing market. This next graph shows you we should have known how good we had it last year....
As you can see, our data includes January and February housing information from 1991 through 2009. The red bar is the number of new home sales while the blue is the existing home sales. Prior to 2008, the record low was just over 500 homes sold in these two months, but this year we are below 300. Ouch!
The message one should take from this graph is that buyers are standing on the sidelines right now. The economy has them scared and the housing market has them baffled. If you have to sell a home in Tallahassee, you absolutely have to expose it correctly to this constrained buyer pool and you better not miss the opportunity to impress them when you do.

Joe Wrote The Book On How To Sell A Home Today
WARNING: The Internet & digital marketing systems have changed the way sellers need to market a home for sale. It's not about getting a home sold anymore, it's about getting a home sold and netting the most money from the sale.
To do this, a seller needs to hit the digital market hard in a coordinated effort that alerts ready-buyers (all at the same time) to ensure buyers understand they are competing for the right to buy the home.
While it only takes ONE buyer to sell a home, it takes MULTIPLE BUYERS for the seller to bid the property up to its highest value in today's market. You see our full explanation about how to sell a house here, or you can buy the book and really get into the nuts and bolts of selling a home in the digital age.
Get the book that explains it all, in a manner that is understanding to all, even technology neophytes. It's available on Amazon, a trusted source for consumers.
