When reviewing a real estate listing, it’s important for buyers to pay close attention to the days on market (DOM), which is the length of time the home has been for sale on the multiple listing service. In many cases, higher-than-average DOM properties may indicate that the home has been overpriced or that expensive repairs are needed, reports Realtor.com®.
However, that’s not always the case. Depending on the local housing market, a listing may be considered “stale” if the DOM is more than 21 days. In other areas, homes may take as long as three to five months to sell because of the uniqueness of the location, time of the year or other factors. Perhaps an offer on the home had been accepted but fell through when the would-be buyer failed to qualify for the mortgage loan.
Identifying buyer turn-offs such as an outdated interior, poorly maintained landscaping or peeling exterior paint may also help you determine if there’s a deal to be made on an otherwise sound house.

I am a Diamond-Platinum Masters Circle Member again in 2019. The Diamond-Platinum is the highest level in the Club. This prestigious Club is a mark of distinction for Realtors. Below are a few of the attributes of a Masters Circle member and why it’s important.
Whether buying or selling a personal residence or investment property, a real estate transaction involves important financial and emotional considerations. The services of an experienced Realtor® define the difference between just surviving and really enjoying the process.
When you buy a home, a skilled broker helps you find the house that best meets your needs and expectations. You rely on their knowledge of the market area and available inventory as well as their ability to recommend other qualified housing professionals. This includes mortgage lenders, home inspectors, and others whose services will be integral to a great home buying experience.
When you sell your home, a seasoned broker can save you time and money. The ability to correctly price and market your home is critical. Understanding how to interpret current market conditions and position your home for a faster, easier sale requires knowledge and skills only gained through experience.
Choosing your real estate broker is your first important decision. Your broker should be a Realtor®. As a member of the National Association of Realtor®, your broker subscribes to the highest standards of business ethics and practices. The Portland Metropolitan Association of Realtor® (PMAR) is a local chapter of this respected organization.
Your Realtor® should also be a member of the PMAR Masters Circle. The Masters Circle is a benchmark organization formed to recognize Realtors® distinguished by their sales accomplishments and dedicated to the highest degree of professional quality service. Membership is earned by Realtors® who annually demonstrate outstanding achievements in the listing and selling of property. For most people, buying real property is their largest single investment. You benefit from working with a Realtor® who has an established record of success.
MAKING A DIFFERENCE:
Sales achievement is just one mark of excellence. Members seek to build and stregthen the relationships between the real estate industry and the communities they serve. The PMAR Masters Circle makes annual contributions to non-profit organizations committed to serving the greater Portland area.
YOU HOLD THE KEY:
When the time is right to consider your first or your next real estate transaction, remember your goal is to buy or sell real estate. However, your objective should be to maximize the enjoyment and the financial benefit of the entire transaction by working with a proven professional.
The choice is yours — choose wisely.
Choose a Realtor® who has earned membership in the PMAR Masters Circle. Call me when your ready to get going on your next move.
I’S A GOOD LIFE!!
