Is the value stable for the sale of your DC home?
Finding a DC REALTOR and selling a home in DC right now is a challenging move, yet a smart one right now if you're needing to unload an extra property or finally moving to increase or downsize your space. Lately I have been having dialogue with individuals who have attempted to sell their homes in the last 3-5 years. For whatever reason(s), their homes haven't sold and they chose to keep their homes off the market. Now that we're in a pretty aggressive seller's market, some are coming back and getting their homes sold, some are still holding off and others are finally talking with an agent so that they can finally get off the fence and and at last make the move. A CMA (competitive marketing analysis) is the first step to setting the 'floor' and 'ceiling' in the right price for your home in this market, click the image below to get started!
The first step in selling your home, is to first know the value. It's hard to emotionally detach from personal or sentimental value, yet easy to be so attached that one may be unrealistic in the price of the home. Subconsciously, some put themselves in the position of holding on to their homes when they really need to make a move and go forward. In a market such as what we're experiencing right now, it's simple in understanding that you're either pricing to sell or pricing to keep. As always, many sellers have the process worked out a certain way in their minds and don't understand that conversing with the market involves coming around to what is actually happening as opposed to what one would like to occur aside from achieving a sale. The means by which this is done starts with the right pricing followed by the proper marketing and positioning of your home.
Marketing and positioning are equally important in selling a home in DC. Where one may have heard the much repeated statistic of 90% of buyers starting their home search on the internet, there must be an understanding of how many within that 90% are searching for a home in your city/town/neighborhood, and from there, the number of buyers searching for a home in the price range in which your home is set.
