Sellers Who Were Hoping For Top Dollar Are Suddenly More Realistic And More Motivated

A report from the Coeur d’ Alene Press in Idaho. “The wild real estate market ride in Kootenai County might be calming down. As of Sept. 9, there were over 1,200 local MLS listings. That’s more than triple the number of listed homes in January.”

From Valley News Live in North Dakota. “After a red hot summer for home sellers here in the FM area, there is change brewing in the real estate market. According to local real estate experts, the market has slowed down off its peak, which some realtors say is typical for this time of year.”

From WJHL in Tennessee. “With high demand and low inventory, it’s certainly a seller’s market and that hasn’t changed, but a slight cool-down when it comes to the housing market could soon be coming to the Tri-Cities. ‘The cooling is in regard to the multiple offer situations that buyers and sellers have been seeing for a year and that’s what’s sort of cooling off a little bit,’ said broker Kelly Moran.”

From Market Watch. “The frequency of bidding wars on homes has dropped to the lowest level this year — the latest sign that the housing market may be cooling and reverting back to its usual seasonal patterns. ‘Sellers are still pricing their homes very high, but a lot of buyers have had enough and are no longer willing to pay the huge premiums they were six months ago. Instead of 25 to 30 offers on turnkey homes, we’re now seeing five to seven,’ Nicole Dege, a Redfin real estate agent in Orlando, Fla., said in the report.”

The Albuquerque Business Journal in New Mexico. “A home sat for just an average of 12 days in August, according to the latest Greater Albuquerque Association of Realtors report, but some Albuquerque agents are seeing a more tempered response from buyers and sellers.’We’re seeing a little bit of a cooling off where it’s not quite as hectic as it was two or three months ago,’ said John Castillo, owner of Southwest Elite Real Estate. These days, Castillo said that the number of home showings have remained steady. But, he estimates, the number of offers for a home have dropped from 10 to 15 per listing to about two or three.”

From Vail Daily in Colorado. “An offshoot of supply and demand is that when prices rise too much, demand tends to soften. Matt Fitzgerald, the Eagle County president for Slifer Smith & Frampton Real Estate, said it’s too soon to tell if demand has started to be affected by pricing. A home in the right location that isn’t overpriced tends to sell quickly. ‘It’s highly dependent on the individual property,’ Fitzgerald said, adding that a super-quick sale ‘isn’t the blanket statement it was even a few months ago.'”

From Sentinel Colorado. “Recent market conditions have accounted for a slight decrease in median sale prices across the metroplex. According to the association, prices were down about 2% from July to August. The overall state picture looks much the same with median prices falling about 1% from July to August. ‘We are seeing many price reductions and sellers who were hoping for a quick sale and top dollar and are suddenly more realistic now and more motivated. The time for buyers to buy will be in the next 3 months so they can take advantage of this situation and purchase before interest rates increase next year,’ Boulder realtor Kelly Moye advised in the week’s real estate trend report.”

The Houston Chronicle in Texas. “Pricing, HAR officials noted, has eased a bit since setting record highs in June. ‘The Houston housing market is beginning to show signs of easing, which was to be expected with summer behind us, schools back in session and inventory levels still exceptionally low, albeit improving,’ said HAR Chairman Richard Miranda. ‘We are also hearing anecdotally that there aren’t quite as many competitive bids on property listings as we observed earlier this year, which drove prices into record territory in June.'”

The New York Post. “‘Real Housewives of New York’ star Sonja Morgan has been forced to take her Manhattan townhouse off the market once again after eight years without an offer, The Post can report. Morgan, 57, initially listed the Upper East Side home back in 2013 for $9.95 million amid her divorce battle with J.P. Morgan heir John A. Morgan. It has seen several price cuts since, including a $7.2 million price tag back in 2015. In 2018, after receiving no offers, she tried renting the five-story residence for $32,000 per month, property records show.”

“After extensive remodeling, the home was back on sale last summer for $8.75 million, in hopes the vibrant market amid the pandemic would be in her favor. But after a year without any prospects, Morgan delisted the property last week. ‘At this point, this house is nothing more than a financial drain, an emotional drain,’ she explained.”

From Realtor.com. “While courts and creditors sort out whether Bravo-lebrity Erika Jayne and her estranged husband, the lawyer Tom Girardi, funded their lavish lifestyle with money stolen from his clients, the value of one of their major assets—a mansion in Pasadena, CA—continues to plummet by more than a million dollars every month. The home was initially listed in early May for $13 million, and its price has since been cut three times in the past four months, in an effort to snare an offer. It’s now priced at $8.9 million, 32% off the original price.”

“And in other bad news: They may have to cut the price again, to bring it in line with current Pasadena pricing. The Girardi mansion is currently priced at $866 per square foot, still well above the city’s median list price of $656 per square foot.”

“While Erika is defending herself off camera in legal proceedings, she’s also clashing with fellow Beverly Hills ‘Housewives’ over questions about her spending and marriage, which has made for some must-see TV this season. ‘I do not believe there’s a single person at this table that doesn’t want to see you come out of this,’ Dorit Kemsley told Jayne during a recent episode. ‘I’m going to support you to the bitter end. I will do anything you need, anything. But holy s***, when you’re reading about the victims and the orphans, that’s very hard to digest.'”

  1. ‘At this point, this house is nothing more than a financial drain, an emotional drain’

    That’s some red hotcakes right there.

    1. I’ll point out that if you believe the media, Manhattan is red hotcakes. And wasn’t it just a couple weeks ago Bloomberg told us the same about China’s ghost cities? Now we read the top sh$tholes over there are off 20%.

          1. “tired and weak , not easy to go up or down stairs, stomach aches and pains, cant fall asleep easily , got maybe 3 hours last night and the night before”

            This was ” my immune system is in great shape ” and yea he was in really good shape. Constantly told me this ” I’m in great shape go to the gym , bike, hike, etc. ” While I stress out at work ..

        1. A lot of stories of staff shortages due to kielbasa mandates. My prediction is that they will offer green cards, citizenship, and amnesty to anyone who takes the kielbasa so corporations can replace any anti-kielbasa extremists who don’t comply.

        1. “After extensive remodeling, the home was back on sale last summer for $8.75 million, in hopes the vibrant market amid the pandemic would be in her favor. But after a year without any prospects, Morgan delisted the property last week. ‘At this point, this house is nothing more than a financial drain, an emotional drain,’ she explained.

          But don’t give it away!

  2. ‘We are seeing many price reductions and sellers who were hoping for a quick sale and top dollar and are suddenly more realistic now and more motivated’

    Many reductions? Suddenly? Like Fargo, the trend of sh$tholes = Boulder rolling over continues. Wa happened Albuquerque?

  3. ‘Sellers are still pricing their homes very high, but a lot of buyers have had enough and are no longer willing to pay the huge premiums they were six months ago. Instead of 25 to 30 offers on turnkey homes, we’re now seeing five to seven’

    It’s not hard to spot the UHS talking points, after so many months. They started this in California. “Oh instead of 30,000 offers over asking we got maybe 2.” And they talk about buyers like they are always out there, shark like, feeding day after day. Whereas sellers always have a shack to sell, day after day. Two bodies constantly stalking each other.

    I was thinking about the UHS.com report yesterday. 100,000 newly listed shacks a week for 15 out of 17 weeks. That’s 1.5 million shacks.

    DONG!

        1. Just learned my sister bought a house at ask in Clark County NV, end of April, closed May first week — right on que. LOL. top of the market, and questionable water supply.

          1. and questionable water supply

            If I lived in Vegas I would be watching water levels in Lake Mead shrink with a great deal of alarm.

    1. “100,000 newly listed shacks a week for 15 out of 17 weeks. That’s 1.5 million shacks.”

      Broke, indebted realtors heading for the exit much too late…..

      Got some crime going on.

  4. No room for K-da shacks and the considerable international crater. Don’t look now but Australia hit the wall.

    1. I wonder how much of that has to do with the martial-law lockdowns, and how much to do with China cracking down on money escaping the country.

      1. “…and how much to do with China cracking down on money escaping the country….”

        No reliable hard stats available, but here in Irvine (SoCal, Orange County) the effect is noticeable, partially thru increased MLS activity and partially via observation and word of mouth.

        For many years have held the opinion that foreign money (much of it Chinese) purchased high priced real estate in this area as a money laundering method. Hard to prove, but if it looks like a duck, walks like a duck…..

  5. Over 1,000 people came out in Long Beach, CA to boo Pedo Joe’s motorcade last night.

    We are the leaderless resistance, and this isn’t over until all you globalists are in handcuffs, and after that, hanging from the gallows 🙂

        1. Two liberal Trump-hating females I know recently confided in me that they voted for Trump in the last election. And this is in California.

  6. I haven’t been to Coeur d’ Alene, but have visited the nearby town of Pullman, WA. My impression was that if you took away the university, the place would be devoid of any signs of human civilization.

    ‘A report from the Coeur d’ Alene Press in Idaho. “The wild real estate market ride in Kootenai County might be calming down. As of Sept. 9, there were over 1,200 local MLS listings. That’s more than triple the number of listed homes in January.”’

    1. “Everyone I’ve worked with in coming into Idaho has similar values to the other people living here,” he said. “People are migrating here because they are fed up with their state’s policies — that’s the biggest draw for North Idaho.”

      I know a bit about North Idaho having lived there for a short stretch. First, there are low wages throughout the region. Next up are the long winters above the 45th parallel. There’s more, but these two weigh heaviest on new arrivals.

      1. I know a bit about North Idaho having lived there for a short stretch. First, there are low wages throughout the region.

        I was going to say – the pay is absolutely miserably low, and good jobs almost impossible to come by. But massive house prices? DOES NOT COMPUTE. In fact, I might put northern ID/eastern WA ahead of Bend, OR and Reno, NV as THE most overpriced housing markets in the entire US.

        By the way, why is the bubble so much more massive out west than back east? Is it Clownifornia funny money? Is it the fact that east coast property taxes might be higher? I don’t know, but every tumbleweed town out west has gone full retard.

        1. Hard to say. Immigration to and population growth in my little burg during this bubble have been a a lot less than during bubble 1.0, but prices have gone up a lot more this time. I have heard rumblings of Clownifornians buying higher end shacks here (the 5000 sq ft ones on golf courses), but not across the board.

    2. Silver mining is still a very active and productive industry around Coeur. Those are good paying jobs these days especially for anyone with experience and especially for mining engineers, who are in high demand. The history of mining in the area is rich and fascinating. Maybe be the most productive mining district in the country over the long haul. The first strikes were in the 1860s and it’s still going strong while most other mineral rich deposits in other US localities tapped out long ago.

  7. Coming to the small screen soon: ‘Real Debt Donkeys of Beverly Hills’.

    “While Erika is defending herself off camera in legal proceedings, she’s also clashing with fellow Beverly Hills ‘Housewives’ over questions about her spending and marriage, which has made for some must-see TV this season.”

      1. Do people actually watch this slop? It sure would explain a lot about the state of the nation.

        I’m starting to see bare shelves at the store again. Not as bad as last year, but the local Sam’s Club had no fresh pork whatsoever.

        1. Not bare, but certainly multiple items needing re-stocked at the local Soopers yesterday.

          The mask freaks are back in force, and it’s a noticable increase from just a week ago. Driving alone, walking on the sidewalk alone, gotta have that mask, because 99.98%.

          1. I was also at Kings over the weekend. They had a “we would like you to wear a mask” sign at the entrance, but few were masked up.

        1. trea·son
          /ˈtrēzən/
          noun
          noun: treason; noun: high treason; plural noun: high treasons

          -the crime of betraying one’s country, especially by attempting to kill the sovereign or overthrow the government.

          1. If you went back to the year 2018, or 2015, or 2012, and told someone about all the events that have transpired since about January-March 2020 up until now, would they believe any of it?

            The past eight months have been especially demoralizing, but it feels like the tide is turning, and more people are fighting back.

            Some of us can not be “cancelled” from anything. Censored? Yes. Silenced? No. We are the leaderless resistance, and we are only going to grow louder, and soon, impossible to ignore…

          2. We really can’t stand for this:

    Real Estate’s Biggest Trade Group Seeks to Block Justice Department Probe
    NAR files petition to block investigation of industry practices, saying DOJ’s withdrawal from earlier settlement is breach of law

    WASHINGTON—The main trade association for real-estate agents on Monday sought to block a broad Justice Department investigation of industry practices, after an antitrust settlement between the two sides fell apart this summer.

    The move underscores the growing pressure the residential real-estate industry is experiencing, mainly over the estimated 5% to 6% commissions that agents still receive from many home sales despite technology-driven shifts in house hunting and other changes.

  9. From the Albuquerque piece: “You’re paying top-dollar when you’re buying a resale home whereas we can build a house and can have you in there with 10 to 20% of equity.”

    I’ve never understood RE physics. 🙂

    1. Lying, obfuscation and misrepresentation are the tried and true hallmarks of housing sales.

      The hallmark of the HBB? CRATER RAAAAAAGE!

    2. In places like Albuquerque a new house’s landscaping will consist of a few saplings that will take 20 years to grow into actual trees.

    1. I suspect that most Angelenos just shrug and as long as it stays out of their neighborhood, accept homelessness as part of the bargain of living in SoCal.

  10. I was able to track down this REO by photo:

    Again, this isn’t Williams, but on the east side of the highway to Grand Canyon. I probably drove past this trailer several times over the years. The photos are exactly what I often saw when I first showed up. Note the property preservation photos time stamp. It’s kind of unusual to put it up for sale with photos before the trash out. Must be running low on $. They did winterize it! Bonus points for the FB for not taking the dishwasher.

    Is 142K what the lender is owed? If so, cash out refi strikes again.

    1. Utilities:
      Sewer information: Septic Tank
      Water information: Water Haul
      Utilities for property: Electricity Available

      Had to look up “water haul.” It’s exactly what it sounds like. 💧💧🚘🏠 Hard pass. I’m curious if there is anyway to make the place suitable as an AirBnB for canyon hikers. My guess is no, not even if someone could buy it for the $66K tax assessment and make improvements. Just not enough water to make it work.

      1. 1.04 acre property

        Maybe worth $20K?

        The physical structure?
        Maybe worth $2000?

        Who wants to buy that for $142,000 and why?

      2. Had to look up “water haul.” It’s exactly what it sounds like.

        A lot of people who live “in the county” drive in every day with their heavy duty pickup truck with a water tank in the bed to refill their cistern as they have no well. And these are not necessarily double wides either.

        There is a refill station in town that dispenses potable water. I’m not sure how much it costs.

  11. With Pedo Joe in command, the fearmongering has been ratcheted up to impossible levels now, with the modern day Josef Mengele leading the charge. This guy should have already been put to death for the millions he has killed with his biological weapon. And this Mika piece of garbage should be joining him:

    Dr. Anthony Fauci Tuesday warned that COVID-19 could mutate into an even more virulent “monster variant” if the pandemic is not stamped out with mass vaccination.

    The pandemic expert agreed with MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski when she suggested that a new “monster” stain could make the delta variant look like child’s play.

    1. People showing up in California to vote in person and finding out it shows they already voted when they didn’t. They aren’t going to rig the election , they wouldn’t do that.
      Nothing more frustrating than being at the mercy of Entities that rig elections so they can have a Dictorship of insanity and destruction.

      1. People showing up in California to vote in person and finding out it shows they already voted when they didn’t.”

        Happens with the CA state income tax too, its a pattern complete incompetency and fraud

    2. Dr. Anthony Fauci Tuesday warned that COVID-19 could mutate into an even more virulent “monster variant”

      Translation: A new variant has been developed in a lab and is ready to be released into the wild. Also saw a headline saying that the “Mu” variant is vax resistant (in that case, why even bother?).

      Or maybe it’s just more fear porn to get the “hesitant” to roll up their sleeves?

    1. Li’s lawyer, Bruce Ashley, said his client was a “bright and very earnest young man,” who had good academic records, but declined to comment on the allegations against him.

  12. Glenn Greenwald — The Masking of the Servant Class: Ugly COVID Images From the Met Gala Are Now Commonplace (9/14/2021):

    “When it comes to mask mandates, it is now commonplace to see two distinct classes of people: those who remain maskless as they are served, and those they employ as their servants who must have their faces covered at all times. Prior to the COVID pandemic, it was difficult to imagine how the enormous chasm between the lives of cultural and political elites and everyone else could be made any larger, yet the pandemic generated a new form of crude cultural segregation: a series of protocols which ensure that maskless elites need not ever cast eyes upon the faces of their servant class.”

      “A local ABC news station accidentally opened up Pandora’s Box with a recent and now viral Facebook post. Currently boasting 64k+ shares, the post asked for stories about people that lost a loved one because they *weren’t* vaccinated….what ended up happening was a massive deluge of comments from people that had lost loved ones right after the vaccine instead. The number of actual deaths and side effects from the vaccine is something many suspect the media, Big Pharma, this illegitimate administration, and the CDC are personally covering up.”

      1. Before I left on my vacation in August I was telling a neighbor about my plans and he asked if I was vacxed. I said hell no! He then said his nephew got really sick after the jab and was diagnosed with cancer. Said the shot is poison! I agreed. One buddy of mine lost his aunt and I just found out another lost a good friend of his.

        RIP to Norm Macdonald.

  13. Wanna know real market conditions. Walk into a RE office and see if they trip over each other to help you.

  14. We’ve been in our current apartment unit since 2016. Our base rent when we moved in then was $1475. It’s a 2/2 1177 sq ft. We are moving out the end of October because of a $200 a month rate jump, which, along with the other smaller increases since 2016 would have taken it up to $1750 a month. They are remodeling the unit when we leave (it needs it) and it’s already listed on the website, for $2700 a month. It’s a nice area but come on.

      1. We “owned” a house for 10 years, 2003-2013. I didn’t really like being a homeowner. Always something that needed to be done on it. Nickel and dimed to death. I’ve enjoyed renting but right now I’m feeling a bit like a trapped rat.

      2. The assure me that the vax is safe, effective and that I’ll die if I don’t get the jab. They also tell me that anyone who isn’t jabbed will get the coof, guaranteed.

    “White House official now says USPS workers ARE part of the federal vaccine mandate order under OSHA jurisdiction, though technically not under the executive order,”

    Snort 🙂

    A Washington Post reporter on Thursday night corrected a report claiming that U.S. Postal Service workers – a group of about 650,000 people – would be exempt from President Biden’s executive order calling for federal employees to be vaccinated against the coronavirus.

    “JUST IN: White House official now says USPS workers ARE part of the federal vaccine mandate order under OSHA jurisdiction, though technically not under the executive order,” Post reporter Jacob Bogage wrote on Twitter.

    The Post story mentioned that many of the Postal Service’s work force of nearly 650,000 people were members of the American Postal Workers Union, a group that in July came out against vaccine mandates, asserting “It is not the role of the federal government to mandate vaccinations for the employees we represent.”

    That postal union had endorsed Biden during the 2020 presidential campaign, the Washington Times reported.

    The Postal Service operates outside the executive branch, so is not subject to presidential orders applying to government employees unless specifically named in the order, according to the Post.

  16. I read in the Mexican media that Biden will give a speech to the UN, exhorting the world to be at least 70% vaxxed. I wonder what kind of threats he will make to non-compliant counties? Get vaxxed or no foreign aid for you?

  17. US Lieutenant Colonel RESIGNS over Biden’s ‘tyrannical’ vaccination mandate and warns of ‘Marxist takeover of military’ as he refuses jab and forfeits his pension after 19 years of service

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9991311/Lieutenant-Colonel-resigns-Bidens-vaccine-mandate-forfeits-pension-serving-19-years.html

    A US Army Lieutenant Colonel has resigned and given up his pension after more than 19 years of service because he refuses President Joe Biden’s ‘unethical, immoral and tyrannical’ vaccine mandate.

    Lt Col Paul Douglas Hague’s resignation letter has been shared nearly 10,000 times since his wife tweeted the memo and announced the Army vet is ‘walking away from all he’s worked for and believed in since he was an ROTC kid’.

  18. US Army mandates active duty soldiers must be vaccinated by December

    https://nypost.com/2021/09/15/us-army-orders-active-soldiers-to-be-vaccinated-by-december/

    The US Army on Tuesday announced all active soldiers must be vaccinated for the coronavirus by Dec. 15.

    The development comes after the Pentagon last month said all US military members would be required to receive the COVID-19 jab following the Food and Drug Administration full approval of the Pfizer vaccine.
