My Long Island House Is Worth More Because...

By
Real Estate Agent with The Top Team @ Charles Rutenberg Realty 255 Executive Dr, Plainview NY 11803

Larry and I Have Heard All Sorts of Reasons Why Home Sellers Think Their Home Is Worth More Than Others. Here Are Some Of Their Misguided Explanations...

 

 

My house is worth more because the 2 other agents I spoke to said it would.

 

My house is worth more because I looked on Z and it gave me a higher price.

 

My house is worth more because my daughter is going to take her Real Estate course and she said she will raise the price.

 

My house is worth more because I pay a higher monthly mortgage payment than my neighbors do.

 

My house is worth more because the linoleum floor I replaced 15 years ago only has a crack by the edge of the refrigerator.

 

My house is worth more because I have too many memories to just sell it for what you say it's worth.

 

My house is worth more because I think it is!

 

Oh yes, believe it or not, we have heard all of the above, and NO - None of their homes were worth more...

Good morning Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Cell: 631-805-4400, sadly, I've heard most of them. Sellers should know we would love to get their homes sold for the highest amount within the market.

When I am at a listing appointment and I know that the sellers likely think their home is worth more than it is I try not to drink water when they are explaining why they think that because I am afraid that I will spit the water up when I hear their reasons, haha.

Barbara, We have had to walk away from some listing appointments when the seller was too unrealistic in their reason that their house was worth more!

Roy, Larry and I try to get as close as we can to sellers asking prices.

Nina, Yes we have heard all of these, and some I forgot to mention too!

Beth, Of course. It doesn't help anyone if their homes are listed at the wrong price.

Brian, I know what you mean. But, as we all know, there are sellers that just don't get it!

Sheila,

It continues to me amaze how people want to see more than what is in front of their noses.  And the examples you shared are universal.  A

The best advice I can give to consumers in and around Plainview, NY is to stop listening to old erroneous lines from people not even close to having the expertise and knowledge as Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Cell: 631-805-4400. Buying residential property is the most expensive investment for nearly all people. Keep your friendship and family close, but trust Larry and Sheila Agranoff when money counts!

Alexandra, Yes it's right there in front of them, but somehow they don't see it...

Patricia, Many times those who have not sold a house in 30 years think they know what the market is like today...They usually are very wrong!
