Sun City Festival resale home sales reports - 1st half of 2010

Sun City Festival resale home sales reports - 1st half of 2010

I've had the pleasure of selling a number of resale homes in Sun City Festival.  There is actually a very good market for Sun City Festival resales provided they don't back up to the power lines or main roads.  This is rather unusual for new home communities as the competition with builder incentives can be fierce.

Fortunately for the residents of Sun City Festival, most of the new construction lot selection is north of the power lines and further away from the rec center than many buyers wish to be. 

The primary factor potential listing clients need to be aware of though is that there is a relatively narrow price range where homes can be listed at if they want to encourage serious buyers to look at and present an offer on their home.  Unfortunately, in the vast majority of cases, what the sellers net is somewhat less than what they have invested in the property.  This is due to pricing that is established by Pulte homes for their new builds (factoring in deep pocket incentives) as well as by the appraisers who get to weigh in whenever a buyer is purchasing their new Sun City Festival real estate with a new loan.

It is a very rare day a seller might see a cash buyer that disregards what the comps are saying.  Not impossible, but the only time I've seen this happen was in the case of a unique lot/view and there were multiple offers/interested parties at the same time.  All fairly rare in this buyers market.
