Real estate poll results: Asking prices
How 'bout dem asking prices for Baltimore-area homes?
I put this to you a week ago, and nearly nine in 10 of you said "overpriced." And about four in 10 of you polled folks say you're homeowners, so this isn't just coming from renters in search of rock-bottom deals.
Here's the full breakdown as of right now:
Forty-three percent chose "overpriced by more than 20 percent."
Thirty-five percent opted for "overpriced by 10 to 20 percent."
Nine percent said "overpriced by less than 10 percent."
Ten percent, meanwhile, said "fairly priced," and the remaining three percent chose "underpriced by 10 to 20 percent." (No one opted for the other underpriced options.)
I also asked for a bit of demographic information to put the answers into context -- and help me get to know you better.
Forty-eight percent of you say you're renters hoping to buy now or in the fairly near future, and 14 percent are homeowners hoping to sell within that same time period.
Twenty-four percent of you are homeowners not planning to sell anytime soon, and 13 percent are renters not planning to buy anytime soon.
And one person identified him or herself as an industry pro.
Thanks for weighing in, everyone. Are these results what you expected?
