In any market the best chance for selling your property is within the first four weeks. Studies show that the longer a property stays on the market, the less the seller will net. Below are five main factors to accomplishing this goal.
Pricing Factor It is very important to price your property at a competitive market value right when you list it. The market is so competitive that even over-pricing by a few thousand dollars could mean that your house will not sell. It's interesting, but your first offer is usually your best offer. Here are reasons for pricing your property at the market value right from the start in order to net you the most amount of money in the shortest amount of time.
An overpriced home:
Minimizes offers, Lowers inspections, Lowers agent response, Limits financing, Limits qualified buyers and Nets less for the seller 80% of the marketing is done when deciding on the plan for pricing your home. If you are unwilling to list at the current market value, or adjust to meet the current market, you would be better off not putting it on the market at this time.
Access Factor Top selling agents have learnt time poor buyers make it difficult to show your home if both the key and access are not readily available. The greatest way to sell your home is to give constant access with a key to a clean well priced home! To avoid anyone feeling uncomfortable just leave soft music playing and take a short walk with your children and pets (Ideally leave 10 minutes before an inspection and return 10 minutes after the inspection is due to end)
Let the buyer be at ease and most importantly let the agents do their job.
