I've come to the conclusion that I may have to answer this for some of my clients, but others don't see the problem. Many sellers would jump at the chance to sell their home to a buyer if they brought an offer in for only $400 less than asking price. Some would even willing to go as far as $5,000 to $10,000 below asking price to sell their home.
So, why is it when you ask them to spend $299.00 to sell their home quicker they say no? How is this possible? Am I not explaining myself clearly? Do you want your home to sell or do you want to have it sit on the market for another six months until it cools off outside?
What am I getting at? Well, when it is 75 degrees outside and your house sits at 92 degrees inside, then it is very hard to convince people that if the temperature reaches 90 degrees outside that it will get cooler inside your house. Now, some homes just can't take an air conditioner well, even a window unit. But now Costco and other stores sell a unit that just plugs in to the wall and has a pipe that fits out the window for $299.00 and can keep your house cool during those summer showings.
People looking during the summer are not looking to buy a home that is hot, even on the coolest days. They want a home that is move in ready and is comfortable to them in style and livability, and being cool can be considered livability. So, if your home is sitting at 92 degrees today, while it is cooler outside, may I suggest you spend the $400 to get your home sold quicker, or you can wait until fall and watch the price of your home drop as well.
