Clifton Park NY Homes for Sale Although the local real estate market, including Clifton Park NY, continues to be a buyers market there are 10 easy or inexpensive things every seller should do in order to expedite the sale of their home.  The entire premise of this list is 1) CLEAN and 2) MINIMIZE.  As a seller, you have every right to live anyway you chose, but if you want to maximize your selling price and minimize your Days on Market, then please follow these tips.  This list starts outside the home because the old adage still holds true; first impressions are lasting ones. Paint or replace worn-out mail boxes. Paint faded shutters. Wash or paint your front door. If your storm door is old and unsightly, remove it.  No storm door is better than a bad one.

Clifton Park NY Homes for Sale There were 54 closings in the month of September in Clifton Park NY and the surrounding communities that make up the Shenendehowa Central School district.  Of these 54 homes, 13 were new construction.  Since a lot of new homes sell for more than their list price (due to upgrades) I have eliminated them from the following analysis. The Average Original List Price was $306,866 The Average Current List Price was $296,605 (Dropped 3.3% from Original List) The Average Sale Price was $284,729 The Sale price represents 96% of the Current List Price The Average Days On Market was 82 If you have any questions about the real estate market in Clifton Park NY or the greater Albany NY metropolitan area, please feel free to call me at your convenience.
