Houses sell quickly and usually for the most money when they are priced properly from the beginning.
Most activity will take place in the first 3-4 weeks of a listing. The excitement of a new property on the market will create an urgency for both buyers and agents to see it as quickly as possible. In many instances, the home will receive its highest and best offers during this time. Studies show that the longer a property stays on the market, the less the seller will net upon the sale. It is very important to price your property at a competitive market value at the signing of your listing contract. The market is so competitive that even over-pricing by a few thousand dollars could mean that your house will not sell.
An Overpriced Home:
· Minimizes offers
· Lowers agents' response · Limits qualified buyers
· Lowers showings
· Helps sell the competition
· Limits financing
· Reduces advertising response
· Nets less for the seller
