Recognizing Key Market Factors
We do not control:
We can control:
Condition of the house
The 80/20 Rule There are two major factors in selling your home:
Pricing Your Property Determining price is the most critical step in preparing your home for sale, so you can get the highest return in the least amount of time.
Pricing Your Property
Pricing strategy depends on market conditions
Best exposure during the first 3 to 5 weeks
Well-priced homes sell quickly
The longer a home is on the market, the lower the selling price
The “right” price attracts qualified buyers
Overpricing a property loses buyers that are looking and are ready to purchase at the “right” price
