As a homeowner, I thought you’d be interested in avoiding one of the most common mistakes homeowners make when they decide to sell their property. Even if you aren’t planning any changes soon, it wouldn’t hurt to know how to avoid the loss of several thousand dollars when you DO decide to make a move.
How do you get the LEAST money possible for your house? That question has a simple answer: ask too much for it, believing you can always come down later if you have to! It is a common strategy among sellers (and some real estate agents) who don’t know any better. But it doesn’t work!
The reason is because nothing ever sells when the price is too high. Buyers always look at more than one home to get a feel for their choices, and no one ever spends more than necessary. Also, the longer a house sits on the market without selling, the more likely people are to assume that there must be something wrong with it. Is it the price? Or does it need hidden repairs? Will it be this hard to sell when this buyer wants to sell it?
If you’d like to sell your house quickly and at top dollar, CREATE A DEMAND FOR IT. That is, price it VERY close to its expected actual selling price and watch people compete for it. Don’t worry about selling it for too low a price. Just because someone offers you too little for it doesn’t mean you have to accept their offer. And you can afford to be choosy–you’ve got the property that’s in demand!
My years of experience have proven this particular piece of information to be accurate. And I have a lot more information and experience to share with you. So when you decide you’d like to sell what you now own, there is no one in the market who is better equipped to move you ahead than me. When that time comes, I’d like the opportunity to show you how to get the most for your property!
