Price Your House to Sell Fast and For Top DollarJune 24th, 2019 by Karen
In today’s real estate market, more houses are coming to market every day and eager buyers are searching for their dream home. Setting the right price for your house is one of the most important things you can do.
Should You Leave Room for Negotiation?
Homeowners must realize that pricing their homes a little OVER market value to leave room for negotiation will dramatically decrease the number of buyers who will see their home! (see the chart below).
Let Multiple Buyers Compete with Each Other
Instead of the seller trying to ‘win’ the negotiation with one buyer, they should price their house to have multiple buyers competing with each other. By doing so, the demand for the home is maximized resulting in the maximum price.
The Risk of Overpricing
Your best chance of selling your home is in the first two weeks of marketing.
Price Your House Right from the Start
With prices slowing from their previous pace, you need an expert agent who can help price your house right from the start. Homeowners who make the mistake of overpricing their homes will eventually have to drop the price. This leaves buyers wondering if the price drop was caused by something wrong with the house. In reality, nothing is wrong- the price was just too high!
The key to selling your house in 2019 is making sure your house is Priced To Sell Immediately (PTSI)! That way, your home will be seen by the most buyers and will sell at a great price before more competition comes to market!
