Getting ready to get into the real-estate market? Most sellers today are nervous and unsure. They wonder: is taking a loss on our house inevitable? The answer is no! A strategic sales plan, coupled with a smart buy in your new location will ensure that you recoup the maximum value for your home.
Your Strategic Sales Plan:
- Consult with an expert: I will ensure your house is priced competitively. Why? Because while there are always three factors to getting a home sold—location, price, and condition—only two are under your control: price and condition. Of the two, which is more significant? Price. Remember that price will correct bad condition, but condition will never overcome a bad price.
- Act fast:You’re in a race against time—the best price you’ll get in today’s market is the one you get now. If you wait, it will be lower. And every month the price on your home decreases, your costs remain the same. For example, research shows that sellers who listed their home at the price the agent originally recommended, sold the home 38 days faster. This is over a month of mortgage and tax payments!
- Don’t worryabout where the market has been, keep your focus on where it is going. The price your neighbor down the street got six months ago is not relevant in a market where your house is competing with others from all across town.
Bottom line: Don’t pit yourself against the market, work with the market to get the most out of your home.
