Price it RIGHT… Or you’ll get a lower price later

In my 23+ years of real estate I've observed one key thing; folks thinking of selling their home really don't like to hear this statement. Most feel, when they hear "price it right" they are being asked to sell at a reduced price and the realtor just wants a quick sale. In reality it is a TIMELY sale both the seller and realtor should want. In a market where we have an over abundance of pre-owned & new construction homes for sale, pricing becomes even more critical and as a rule, the longer your home remains on the market…the less you will get. Overpricing, especially in a market that is saturated with homes for sale, is a big, big mistake. An agent that knows and keeps current with the market and what is going on in that particular neighborhood and surrounding area will know how to price your home to get it sold expediently while still realizing for you the highest and best sales price.


*In conclusion most showings for any home will take place during its first 2-4 weeks on the market – when it’s an exciting, new listing! So it’s critical that the asking price be razor sharp to the actual value right from the start of your home being put on the market!!
