Possibly Oversupply of Potential Competing Listings? I do know that the marketing time period appears to be increasing after the tax credit expiration. Also, for the appraisal completed in Woodlawn Estates, there were 25 competing listings with only 51 competing solds in the past 12 months. So, there’s at least 50% of the number of homes sold since 6/2009 on the market currently. And, this doesn’t include FSBO Listings. If competing FSBO listings were included, the number of competing listings could be closer to 30 to 35.
