Buyers Aren’t Feeling the Love for These Long-Term Market Dwellers Near Fort Meade

Is it their price? Or their condition?

Or is it both?

Homes that linger on the for-sale market for extended periods do so because they don’t appeal to buyers. Usually, it’s because such homes don’t offer good value for money.

Real estate professionals know that any house will sell – even a dilapidated ruin next to a toxic waste dump. The question always comes down to price.

In Odenton – like any residential real estate market – some homes take longer to sell than others. In extreme cases, where price and condition combine to alienate buyers, homes can remain on the market for six months, nine months, or even a year or more.

Below is a list of 10 Odenton homes that have been on the market the longest – in this case, considerably longer than six months. It’s worth noting that the type and location of these properties varies widely, as do the potential reasons buyers might be avoiding them.
