Why I give Schaumburg Home Sellers a market advantage!

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Suburban

One of the values that an agent brings to the table is their local knowledge of the real schaumburg housing marketestate market.

Is it up? Is it down?

Suddenly a particular financing can no longer be used on your home which makes it available to less buyers. There are many, many things to compile to become knowledgeable.

I pass all that information along to my sellers so they sell for more money & in a decent time frame.

That's what I do & what I work for with every client I represent.

One of the things that I noticed on doing the 2019 year end review was the vast amount of lender fees, points or 'mortgage help' the buyers are asking for in their home purchases. Following the sold & closed property everyday in nearby markets, I keep seeing $4000 and $5000 on many listings. What this is also called is 'seller concessions'.

In other words, the seller has made less money on their home than anticipated.

That's a big deal & here's why .... if the MLS is telling us that a seller in Schaumburg will receive on the average 97% of the listing price (equalling 3% off list) then there is additional $4000 to $5000 that the sellers did not anticipate. Also makes the seller stand more 'firm' on the price in case they do have to give 'mortgage help' to a buyer. There is no more margin for the seller. If they need to reduce their price in the future - whoops, no more margin.

This will be changing the market coming up for spring & sellers should be made aware! I plan to advise my sellers of this new change so that we can come up with a good strategy to still get their house sold. Get a good game plan & get them on to their new location.

I would welcome doing the same for you. schaumburg home sales

Good morning, Lyn Sims ... there's much for potential sellers AND their potential buyers to think about in your narrative..... as a listing agent, you do a fantastic job of representing your seller clients and giving them the proper direction at the onset....the listing presentation is the first step and you provide a thorough view of what they could expect during their listing period and how to create a situation that's to their advantage.....you represent them well.... but you already knew this and they do, too!

Great post, Lyn... and when MLS stats don't take seller concessions into account, the statistics get skewed. Our market has seen much less of seller concessions in recent years, but I'm sure the day will come when they become common again.
