How do I set the price?
Pricing a Home for sale is not like pricing a car. An overpriced car will get low offers as part of the “game”. All it takes is a quick phone call on a car but making an offer on a Home takes a serious effort from several parties. If you are priced too high many folks wont even try. So the idea “We can always come down” does not hold true. Another mistake is to Price your home for what you “Need” to retire or make the move to your “Dream Home”. If you are thinking of selling there are lots things you can do to improve the chances of selling your home quickly and for the best possible price. Gold Run Realty is here with many years of experience to help make that happen.
Don’t rush the process!
Allow us the time to get great pictures and develop a marketing plan that suits your home and its special features or location that might benefit from special advertising such as lakeside properties, horse properties or larger properties that may be suited to drone photograpy.
Prepare your Home for sale!
The first step is to be sure you know what you are selling. Get the basic inspections done so you know what to expect up front rather than wait for an accepted offer and let the Buyer pick the inspector and develop a shopping list as a negotiating point. Knowledge is power. The power to correct health and safety issues up front so the Buyer does not have to worry about them.
Another advantage of getting your repairs made early is that you can use trusted vendors instead of accepting a last minute high bid just to close escrow. Buyers are almost never happy with repairs done in escrow by your lowest bidder. Dont overdo it either by spending a lot of money on color or pattern choices out side of the mainstream.
What’s Your Home Worth?
Not sure if this is a good time to sell? Wonder how much you could get for your home? Let us create a comparative market analysis for your home to answer those questions and more. We have the experience necessary to help you set the right price that will attract lots of views instead of waiting for the “right Buyer”. Statistics show a home gets the most attention in the first couple of weeks and experience shows that the first reasonable offer is often the best offer. Dont ever think you sold your house too soon!
