The content of this article holds the key to what so many have searched before. The text is not based upon speculation, not based on here-say, but rather predicated on market fact. Everyone has an opinion on the housing market. But when does fact supersede opinion/ And although the secret is a widely know belief, has it been proved beyond a reasonable doubt? . The key to selling your house in this current market will soon be revealed.
The basis for a successful property transfer was discovered in less than an hour. Not merely by accident like rubber and the telephone, but by proving a theory. There must be a correlation somewhere between why some experience success while others repeat failure.
Selling houses is not rocket science. There is no magic bullet, no formula that has been passed down through time. No one person or company has "the power", for if they did it would have been published long ago, allowing the keeper of the cup to cash out and make thousands of dollars on speaking and book publishing. Any experienced salesperson knows this to be true, although it is often a euphemism with talk of "an aggressive marketing program".
It Should Have Been Obvious
Sometimes we attempt to make things more complex. The secret to a property transaction being completed in a timely manner is simple. It should have been announced a long ago. In fact, we confuse the real issue with terms such as "staging", "curb appeal" and rosy laced language we forget we are selling real property, instead of trench coats for J. Peterman.
The Secret Announced
Your success or failure will be determined from the first day. When your house hits the market and has been announced "For Sale", your philosophy has been played and your motive announced.
For the key to maximizing your value, the difference between winning and losing all comes down to one thing........the listing price
The data analyzed was Pasadena California home sales for the month of May.
Price your house correctly from the beginning and two things are likely to happen:
- It will sell for more money
- It will sell in less time
When properties are listed too high, they tend to chase the market taking price reductions, ultimately selling for less and less of their asking price. The result is longer selling times, therefore reducing your value.
When the market is declining, time is money. The longer your home sits unsold, well I think you get the idea.
