Pricing your Home Attractively
Everyone keeps saying it is a sellers’ market, and it is. Inventory is still very low, and we are seeing high buyer demand. “According to the latest Realtors Confidence Index Survey from the National Association of Realtors (NAR):
- Homes typically sell within 17 days (compared to 26 days one year ago).
- The average home sold has five offers to pick from.
- 54% of offers are over the asking price.”
It’s tempting to list your house at a high price to capitalize on the trend but it’s important to listen to your real estate agent when determining the price of your home to be listed. If you push for it to be listed too high, it could limit your house’s potential. It’s crucial to keep in mind, your home type, whether it is a single-family or multi-family unit, the area it is located in, and what the other homes that are comparable to yours sold for.
Your agent is looking out for your best interests and wants to get you more bang for your buck too! Trust the process. When the house is priced right, it will draw more attention to your home and may initiate a multi-offer situation that could meet or exceed your expectations of the sale price. The more buyers touring your property, the higher the chance of getting a bigger win.
