Birmingham has two separate real estate markets. Homes offered for $500,000 or less are in a Sellers Market with a 74% sell through rate. Homes offered for $500,000 or more are in a Buyers Market with a less than 50% sell through rate. If you’re in the Buyers Market you’re going to have to incorporate social media marketing with a focus on video to sell your home. You’re going to have to hire a salesman rather than a listing agent.
