I know I have said this before, but if your home is for sale and you are getting little to no traffic….. your home is NOT priced to Sell.
We are now seeing multiple offers on not only single family detached homes but now w/ townhomes. Not LOWBALL multiple offers, but LIST PRICE OR BETTER. (Don’t believe me….give me a call, I will show you the proof, or let’s schedule an appointment and I will take you out and actually show you what is going on in today’s market.
I went out with 3 different buyers this week. The majority of homes that my buyer’s wanted to look at had offers or multiple offers on them. So instead of showing them 10 to 15 homes…They only ended up seeing 3 to 5 on average! Almost all of the homes with offers were for full price or more!
It is a tough market especially for traditional sellers. If you price it correctly you will get a buyer. (When I say this my clients always say or think…Candice that means price it low.)
Now let’s think about this. If your price is too high and you are getting little or NO traffic and you are LUCKY enough to get an offer, it will probably be LOW and on top of that they are going to ask for 3% closing and then expect YOU to pay for every little thing at home inspection time. Now if you have it priced WELL…..you will get lots of traffic and probably get multiple offers at the price you have it listed at….Not a low-ball offer. You the seller are now in the driver’s seat and your buyer feels that he has gotten a deal….That means your buyer is less likely to ask for closing costs or repairs. Why, because they are getting a “deal”
In the end, you, the seller, are saving the money.
