There are three (3) components required to selling a home:
You, as the owner, have control over the first two items... I have control over the last. I will help you with ideas to get your property into the best condition to sell at the best price. Your cooperation is critical to your sale's success...
Most buyers don't house hunt in a single subdivision; they usually purchase in an entire area or school district. When there are dozens of other homes to choose from, they tend to ignore homes perceived as overpriced - and end up buying your competition. If you hear buyers complain your home is too high in price - you are actually helping the other sellers in the marketplace sell their homes! We may need to discuss realigning your asking price to an appropriate figure - and it will sell.
The Nat'l Association of Realtors published a stat that if a clean, well presented home does not get an offer within reasonable time on market it's likely at least 5% overpriced. The longer your home sits, the lower ultimately the contract price you'll receive. I promise to guide you with my market knowledge and experience to help you decide on the best price.
With buyers, perception is everything...and they often heavily discount repair items in their favor. For example, if your carpet is soiled and can be cleaned for $400, the buyers may ask for $4,000 in carpet replacement allowance. I will help you decide what actions to take that will net you much more money in the end.
I promise you the best, most honest representation to get your house sold at top market price!
