Summer Selling Opportunities

Sellers, you have an excellent opportunity to sell your home this season if you have the right pricing strategy in place from the start! 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 today in many places is so competitive that even over-pricing by a few thousand dollars could mean that your house will not sell as soon as it could.

An Overpriced Home:

· Minimizes offers

· Lowers agents response

· Limits qualified buyers

· Lowers showings

· Lowers prospects

· Limits financing

· Wastes advertising dollars

· Nets less for the seller
