As a Realtor working in the Green Bay Real Estate Industry for the last 3.5 years it suprises me how many times I have run into a sitution where a seller tells me that another agent told them they could get them X. You can safely assume that many times X is way higher than recent comparables of the property. Why would a Professional Realtor possibly set themselves up to disappoint their clients? Are they scared of having a hard conversation with their potential client? It sure seems like a lot of agents are afraid of how the seller will interpret a realistic listing price. Some agents seem to feel if they set the price high they'll get hired. A quote from A Few Good Men comes to my mind, "You can't handle the truth." It's our professional duty as a realtor to give our sellers THE TRUTH, even if we know they won't like it.
I'm sure the majority of us have said those dreaded words "I can get you this for your house...". As a Green Bay Real Estate Professional, I've learned through my experiences that the "I" needs to be taken out of those conversations. What determines what you can get for your home? The Green Bay Real Estate Market is the true indicator.
Three things happen when you list your property for sale:
- You receive a good amount of traffic in your first 45 days on the market and then we present an offer..
- You received a good amount of traffic in the first 45 days but no offers are coming in. Why?
- You have the house on the market and you receive no showings in the first 45 days.
When analyzing a property I'm focusing on establishing clear value for both buyer and seller. With the internet these days people are actively looking at the majority of their options before they even step foot into a house. You can safely assume that the potential buyer has a clear idea of what a home's value is in their mind. If you reasonably price your home where clear value is evident, you will sell your home faster and for a higher return than listing it with an unrealistic price. You will also have a better chance of not having to reduce your price and let your home sit on the market. .
You can still sell your Green Bay Wisconsin Home, you just need a different game plan than before. You can benefit from the detailed statistics regarding absoportion reports that we provide on the current Green Bay Real Estate Market that breaks down specific price points and locations in Green Bay. These statistics are extremly important to you because they measure your specific situation and are a huge part of our game plan to success. The term "absorpotion report" may not mean much to you. But if you are interviewing a potential Green Bay Realtor and don't hear that term, you should consider interviewing someone who not only understands the term, but implements it into every part of listing your home. You do not need to be an expert or understand these terms- it's my job as the expert to explain these to you- and also utilize them to achieve success in selling your Green Bay Wisconsin Home.
