Pricing your property competitively will generate the most activity from brokers and potential buyers. Interest is at its highest when a property is initially placed on the market. Pricing your property too high may make it necessary to drop the price below market value to compete with newer, well priced listings.
Timing is extremely important in the real estate market. The above graph illustrates the importance of placing your property on the market at a realistic price and terms from the very beginning. A property attracts the most excitement and interest from the real estate community and potential buyers when it is first listed.
1. How do I determine the value of my home?
You are not the one who decides the value of your home-- the market does. Location, condition, competition, and lending/mortgage rates are all factors that determine the value of your home.
2. Can I still sell my home even if I have only lived there for a short period of time?
You can sell whenever you wish, but you will more than likely lose money if you buy a home and sell too quickly! The payments you make in the early part of your loan mainly go to the interest portion of your loan, not the principle. If you sell early in the process, unless you have made extra principle payments, got the home at an extremely low price, or made a large down payment, you will most likely have to bring money to the closing table in order to sell.
3. When is the best time to sell?
Traditionally, most homes have sold during the spring months. In the current volatile housing market, the time of year is not the most reliable predictor of the best time to sell.
4. Should I be there when a real estate agent shows my home?
This is nearly always a bad idea! Sellers think buyers won't be able to see everything, and they need to be there to point out important home features. Most buyers feel uncomfortable when the home owners are present, and it can actually do more harm than good. Buyers often won't even open cabinet or closet doors when the seller is home, and if they cannot view a house comfortably, they'll just move on.
