an agent who can provide real numbers and solid marketing plans for your home. The person you choose to sell your home should be knowledgeable in the local area, trustworthy, and available to answer questions or concerns regarding the entire selling process.
Selling your home is a business transaction between a qualified buyer and yourself. If you have enjoyed living in your home for years but have decided to move on, then don’t let emotional attachments to the home affect how you price it. The most objective price will come from the CMA provided by your real estate agent. Memorable moments spent in your home are priceless, but they do not add to the selling price. It is also unrealistic to add dollars because of the labor spent making the house into your home. By focusing on the CMA results and maintaining a firm strictly business attitude, you can keep emotions at bay.
First Day High-Price Blues
The most crucial time for your home are the first 10 days on the market. Once your home is on the MLS, you will see how much interest is generated. If your price is too high, buyers will pass you by because the home is out of their price range or out of kilter in the market area. By the time you decide to lower the price, they have moved on to other properties. As your home sits on the market, buyers will wonder why the home has not sold and conclude that it’s undesirable in some way. Price it correctly from the start to generate interest and gain attention from buyers to sell faster. Unrealistic pricing costs money in the long run.
