Finding a home below current market value requires the buyer to do the opposite of what they are inclined to do. Normally, buyers look for the perfect looking house. The house with the manicured yard, de-clutered closets and bookshelves and everything in the right place. A house in this condition “shows well”. If you want to pay below market value, don’t pass up the house with a yard that needs work or minor repairs or a thorough cleaning. The link below provides more information on this strategy.
