“Real estate, regardless where you’re at, is very, very local,” said Aaron Poling, president of West Virginia’s Eastern Panhandle Board of Realtors. “So you want to go find the Realtor that knows the most about your community, get their advice, get them to do a market analysis.
“Overall, I think it’s a great time to list, but it always comes down to your very specific situation. My default answer is: Talk to the Realtor that knows your very specific area.”
“They might know about some foreclosures that are out there or other properties” that are depressing prices in your area and that could affect the appraisal of the home you’re trying to sell, he said.
“They may know very specific things, like trends of when the majority of folks list or buy in your community,” he said. “There’s trends in every specific area.”
