Are You Listing Your House To SELL or To SIT?

This is the most valuable piece of information in this post: "If you don't grab someone's attention in the first two weeks, your chances of getting your asking price start to diminish.   Once listed, a house on the market ages quickly."  This is why I start to talk to my sellers about their list price not being the right price before even 30 days on the market!  It's the truth - the longer you wait to get the price right, the lower the final sale price will be!  Well said, Sharon!

Are You Listing Your House To Sell or to Sit?

If you are in the process of preparing your house for sale,  it's important you realize that YOUR actions at this point will determine the outcome.   

hourglass with houseYou only get one shot at being "just listed" and it's a very short gig.  If you don't grab someone's attention in the first two weeks, your chances of getting your asking price start to diminish.   Once listed, a house on the market ages quickly.

The difference between multiple offers and price reductions can be a direct result of YOUR preparation.

Today's buyers want move-in ready properties.  They scan MLS photos looking for well maintained houses that appeal to them both visually and emotionally.  They're looking for a house that they can visualize as their home. 

Many sellers invest money, time, and energy on the wrong improvements and find their house sitting instead of selling.  A Home Staging Consult will show you how to prepare smart. 

How you present your house, and how it measures up against the competition, is the key to appealing to buyers and the difference between making money and losing money.

 A little effort now, to properly prepare your house, is well worth your time and investment.


 It's YOUR choice...  SELL or SIT?
