Why it Pays to Price Your Home Right

A few important tips on pricing your home in today’s real estate market!

1. Faster sale

When your home sells faster, you save taxes, insurance costs, mortgage payments, maintenance costs and other ownership costs.

2. Less inconvenience

Showing your home takes a lot of time and work. You have to prepare for showings, keep your home spit-shined, arrangements to have pets and children out of the home during showings…… Proper pricing reduces this.

3. Exposure to buyers in your price range

At market value, you open your home up to more buyers who can afford the price.

4. Increased salesperson response

Buyers and real estate brokers are excited about a home that is priced right, and real estate brokers make special efforts to contact all their potential buyers since they know homes that are priced right sell faster.

5. Better response from advertising and sign calls

Ad calls and sign calls turn into showings when price is not a deterrent. Your home looks good vs. competition.

6. Attracts higher offers

When a home is priced right, buyers are less likely to offer low out of fear of losing a good home.

7. Means MORE money to sellers

If a home is priced right, the excitement of the market produces higher sale prices. You NET more, both in terms of actual sale price and in less carrying costs
