First Impressions Matter But Second Chances Provide Opportunity Too
In our current competitive Pasadena CA real estate market, properties that come on the market---ready for sale --- either due to a superior or highly sought after location, priced within the three best in their marketplace and in "ready to sell" condition are always desired by today's "real buyers". Often times, there will be multiple offers and a sales price in excess of the list price.
But even in this Sellers Real Estate Market there are properties that are not selling and a price reduction may be necessary. As far as price reductions --- the old and familiar saying -- there’s only one chance to make a first impression....well if you have or need a second chance --- make sure your price adjustment makes an impact.
A small or insignificant price reduction simply will not get the attention of the Realtors or the savvy buyers. It makes a seller, in my opinion, seem weak. Make your price reduction significant or don’t make it all and ask yourself the honest question -- why are we selling? Don’t -- do not -- make a $5,000 price reduction on a a $500,000 home. Don’t you think a homebuyer in this market will consider an offer at $495,000 if your home has been on the market and has not sold within a reasonable amount of time - ask me about “reasonable in our current market” -- This is not the market to “test the waters”. Reductions that draw attention may even bring the sellers multiple offers where no acceptable offers previously existed.
If you are interested in selling your Pasadena or San Gabriel Valley property -- let’s do it right from the start -- first impressions do count but if you do have a second chance --- make the impression that you are ready to sell.
