    It all has to do with the price – I promise

    In a strong sellers market like the one we have experienced for the last two years, there is usually one big reason why a home is either: A. Not getting shown or B. Not getting offers.

    It’s overpriced.

    It might be the best value on the market for square footage, it might be in a great location, it might have plenty of extras that should make a potential buyer drool, but if it’s not priced right it will sit. I’m here to tell you, the solution is simple: lower the price! I know, I know, you probably already heard this from your agent and thought that it was worth the price you wanted. But the truth of the matter is, the market is hot, and if your home isn’t selling in today’s market, and your agent is working their butt off to market it, then the price is too high.

    Who doesn’t want to sell what they own, and cherish, for the most they can get? And your agent wants to sell your home for top dollar as well! But if you still haven’t received an offer in such a strong seller’s market, it’s time to sit down with your agent, reevaluate your motivation to sell, and talk about a new price. Do you have goals when it comes to moving? A new house, a new state? That’s awesome! So if you want to move forward with your life, cut out the stress of slowing down your sale, and make the best decision to ensure your home can get under contract. And keep in mind, there is a highly likely chance, that by pricing lower than market value, you can anticipate a bidding frenzy that can get you even more than you anticipated. Supply and demand, it works wonders when you let your agent play the numbers to get buyers in a frenzy for your home. Drop it down to what your trusted agent recommends, and you’ll be putting your best foot forward in your market.
