SHOULD ANXIOUS SELLERS OFFER A BONUS?
Are bonus's bribes?
Are you seeing more listings offering a Selling Bonus? It is showing up on a frequent basis in the Shell Knob/Tri-Lakes MLS. There are not only more sellers offering a bonus, but the amount of the bonus appears to be increasing.
In times past a $1,000 - $5,000 bonus in Shell Knob would be normal, but in today's tight market, $10,000 - $15,000 can be found. Does a bonus really sell a home faster? Will an agent steer a buyer to that property, versus showing a house of equal benefits only offering a normal commission? Sure, it looks interesting on a listing, but you either have a buyer for a given style, or you don't.
Under what circumstances would a Big Bonus get a house under contract sooner, how big would that bonus have to be?
