Warning! The Mistake Many Sellers Make Relisting In The Spring

I get asked often by potential Sellers thinking of the right timing to put their home on the market, when is the best time to put our home on the market Dale?  I tell them I have sold homes every month of the year.  Now, I realize I can show them in my customized market plan for their home all the factual information of when the majority of homes sell in their immediate neighborhood.  Below, Sharon shares some simple reasons why there are other priorities potential Sellers should consider rather than the timing of when to place their home on the market....

Warning!  The Mistake Many Sellers Make Relisting In The Spring

Are you one of the many sellers who took their house off the market last winter, intending to relist in the spring?  If so, it's almost time....and you could be making a very costly mistake.  Do you know what the problem was when you first listed so you can avoid repeating it?

Many sellers take their house off the market blaming the time of year, the economy, or the agent...when the real problem is the condition of their house.  It's important you learn from your experience and, this time around make some changes in your approach to selling.  

Sellers who expect better results by simply changing seasons and/or hiring a new agent usually end up disappointed.

"Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results" 

Albert Einstein


If you want different results this time around, you need a different approach.  Increase the perceived value and set your house apart from the competition. 

  • Make condition and presentation your priority.
  • When choosing an agent, check out the MLS photos of their current listings.
  • Consult with a Professional Home Stager for advice on the most cost effective improvements.
  • Prepack as much as possible.
  • Clean, paint, and update.
  • Organize kitchen cabinets and all closets.

 If you don't choose to improve the condition, then you will have no choice but to lower the price.

That's insanity!

Dale - but real estate is local, as we all know, and in our area listing in late spring makes tons of sense.

We list and sell year round, our slow time is generally the summer, but I don't think so this year. Right now things are on fire.

Listings have picked up for me in the last couple of weeks.  Put a deal together this week and just got in a good offer on a home I listed a few months ago today.  I'm feeling slightly hopeful, but not comfortable yet.
