Price It Right

I’m sorry, Mr. & Mrs. Seller, but don’t shoot the messenger. Whenever a good Realtor talks to you about listing your house for sale, they should always go into a discussion about pricing the house correctly so it will sell. Some agents will promise a price in order to “buy” the listing, but the good agents will fight with the seller to get the house listed at a price where the house will sell. I don’t know how some agents work, but I have a plethora of tools I use to show a home seller where a listing should be priced. As a result, when I place a listing it really disturbs me when I have to do a price reduction. Sometimes another agent will convince a naive seller that they can get the inflated price promised by an agent who is more concerned about a listing than getting the property sold. There is a difference. Then we came into the current market. I was talking with my office manager and mentioned I have had to do more price reductions this year than in all the prior years of my career combined. It really can be disheartening when a home seller has entrusted me with the sale of their house, at the price the market indicates, then face the reality of no activity n the property! This scenario has been going on for too long. In fact, the Tulsa World had an article about this very thing. Click the image to view the article from Sunday, August 15th, 2010.

But! It looks like things are changing. Prices are beginning to increase and the current inventory is low. If you want to sell quickly, this is an excellent time to put your house on the market.
