Increase housing prices to encourage more sales
Housing prices in this area are still too low. There are many retired people who would like to move closer to their grandchildren in Tennessee or North Carolina or Florida, but they can’t afford to. For the price the real estate agents set for their home, all they can afford in the other state is a double-wide trailer.
So they elect to stay in the house they are in. But give them a price that allows them to buy a home in the new location that is comparable to what they have, in a neighborhood that is comparable to where they live now, and watch all the houses come on the market.
