Pricing your home right in this market is very important. You can not base it on how much you paid for it, how much you have put into it or how much you think it is worth. The buyers determine your homes worth. You have to look at the housing market in your area and price your home based on the solds in your market area. If you do not price it right from the start buyers might not even look at the home because they know it is overpriced. That is why having a real estate agent is so important. We are here to help price your home right because we have the up to date information on what is going on in the real estate market. We know the numbers!
An article called Your house will sell if price is just right talks about how “Sellers are overvaluing their homes to their own detriment” sellers need to “bit down hard and slash tens of thousands from their ideal listing price if you’re serious about selling. And you should be prepared to get even less than that…if no one shows up for an open house, if no one calls and if there are no offers, then the price is to high…almost a quarter of all listings on the market in July had at least one price reduction. The average discount from the original listing price? Ten percent, according to Trulia.com”….Sellers do not take it personally…put your emotions aside and remember that “The market couldn’t care less about your personal situation.” Unfortunately that is the hard truth!
