Myth or Truth
MYTH: I should select the agent that suggests the highest list price.
TRUTH: This is the oldest scam in real estate sales: Tell the seller what they want to hear, compliment the home, and agree to list it at an unrealistically high price just to get the listing. Then, after you have the listing for a few weeks, start telling the seller that they need to reduce the price.
Our company does not play games. Instead, we provide a well researched computerized market analysis to determine the true realistic price that your home will bear in today’s marketplace. The decisions of which agent to list with and what price to ask are
two completely separate decisions.
Never select an Agent based on the price they suggest, rather, select your agent based on their MARKETING PLAN, and then decide on price together!
A property in superior condition will sell faster and for a higher price than a home in average condition. Buyers purchase properties that are most appealing, and a home in great condition with a reasonable asking price always tops the list. Sellers that invest in necessary repairs and keep their home clean and fresh always reap the rewards!
Vacant homes often sell faster for several reasons, but again it all depends on condition. A vacant home that is clean, in good repair, and priced fairly will sometimes sell fast because the rooms will appear larger without furniture and clutter, buyers can easily visualize their furnishings in the home, and most agents prefer to show vacant homes because they can go anytime without worrying about making appointments, etc.
Your home will sell for what the market will bear. To determine the range of value for your home, it takes a solid knowledge of the market. And because every home is unique, your home will sell more near the high or low end of the range depending on its specific attributes like location and condition. We utilize a computer database along with years of experience to help you decide where to set the price. It is not simple, but it isn’t mysterious either.
On the average… Buyers inspect 12 homes before making an offer.
That means 11 other homes are competing against yours
You can cancel your listing anytime. You can relax, knowing you won’t be locked into a lengthy contract. Enjoy the caliber of service confident enough to make this offer.
