Your Strategic Sales Plan Consult with an expert,
local real estate agent to ensure your house is priced competitively
and well-staged. Why? Because while there are always three factors to
getting a home sold—location, price, and condition—only two are under
your control: price and condition. Of the two, which is more
significant? Price. Remember that price will correct bad condition, but
condition will never overcome a bad price.
You’re in a race against time—the best price you’ll get in today’s
market is the one you get now. If you wait, it will be lower. And every
month the price on your home decreases, your costs remain the same. For
example, Keller Williams research shows that sellers who listed their
home at the price the agent originally recommended, sold the home 38
days faster. This is over a month of mortgage and tax payments! For a
home that cost $200,000 at time of purchase, with 20 percent down and an
interest rate of 6.5 percent, selling a month sooner results in a
savings of $1101.31 for the mortgage alone, not including the taxes and
insurance that the homeowner would be paying during this time.
about where the market has been, keep your focus on where it is going.
The price your neighbor down the street got six months ago is not
relevant in a market where your house is competing with others from all
across town. Again, a local real estate agent will have the kind of
long-term, wide-ranging data that will help you decide how to pinpoint
your price with precision.
