Turn “For Sale” into SOLD!

Posted

Are you getting frustrated that your home hasn’t sold yet? Has it been sitting on the market with little to no showings, while houses nearby are going under contract almost immediately?

The solution is simple: lower the price. I know, I know, you thought that it was worth what you’re asking. Who doesn’t want to sell what they own and cherish, for the most they can get? Trust me on this: every listing agent wants to sell homes for top dollar too because the more you make, the more we make! But if you still haven’t received an offer in such a strong seller’s market, it’s time to sit down and reevaluate your motivation to sell.

The truth of the matter is, the market is hot. If your home isn’t selling, and it’s had good exposure (being in the MLS, had open house, and pushed on social media) then the price is too high. The qualified buyers, at the price you’re asking, have rejected your house. Stated another way: the buyers who want your house will be found at a lower price point.

Do you have goals when it comes to moving? A bigger house, a new state? That’s awesome! Then cut your stress, and stop slowing down your sale by pricing too high. It’s the best decision to ensure your home can get under contract. Supply and demand works wonders when you let it and you’ll be putting your best foot forward in your market. 

There is a price at which EVERY home will sell. If you haven’t found the correct price yet for your house and your market: decide whether you REALLY want to sell. If you don’t, then take your house off the market and stay put for another year. If you do: lower the price and move on with your life. You’ll be much happier in the long run.
