Homebuyers looking for advice on how to use days on market, or DOM, as a potential negotiating tool turn to LoanPage.com, a complete source of mortgage loan tools and lenders, for answers. A new article, "Doing the Time Warp with Real Estate Market Data" discusses how real estate agents manipulate multiple listing services to boost their home sales (http://www.loanpage.com/articles-and-advice/new-home-loan/doing-the-time-warp-with-real-estate-market-data.aspx). LoanPage.com helps homebuyers understand real estate market trends and make informed buying decisions.
"Doing the Time Warp with Real Estate Market Data" outlines ways that buyers can use the DOM statistic as a tool. Knowing how many days a home has been on the market gives the buyer an opportunity to negotiate for less than the listed price, precisely why relisting has become such a trend in the real estate market, LoanPage.com advises (http://www.loanpage.com/articles-and-advice/new-home-loan/doing-the-time-warp-with-real-estate-market-data.aspx).
Recently, SocketSite reported that nearly a third of the inventory in San Francisco stayed on the market for a full 90 days without selling. The real estate market trend of relisting homes misleads buyers, "If a homebuyer made an offer on a home they thought was on the market for 15 days and it was actually on the market for 120 days, the information may have changed their offer," says Tom Scaglione, president of the regional multiple listing service in Tampa, as reported by Shannon Behnken of The Tampa Tribune.
