Today’s Savvy Seller-Ideas to Ponder

Imagine a deck of playing cards thrown onto your kitchen floor in random order. Each card represents a home on the market in your price range.

What will make today’s buyer pick up your card above the other 51? The theory of the best goes something like this:

In order to get the best price for your home, it’s got to be the best price, in the best condition and in the best location. By meeting all the requirements of the “best”, you increase the odds of getting an offer on your home in a shorter period of time.

Sellers that have gotten to “punch their ticket” so to speak, and move on, will have had their home appraised prior to listing it. The appraisal is then used as a marketing tool for those sellers who are willing to price their home below the appraised value, or ahead of the market curve.

They can look back now and see the value of putting their home “in the market”, and not just “on the market”. Getting a prelisting Home Inspection and addressing the punch list of items that might come up is your way of assuring the buyer that the home is in top condition, and helps to qualify the offers that will come your way.

The market ultimately determines value, not what we would like or need, but what the market will bear.

Increase the odds of getting an offer on your home, by pricing it ahead of the market curve, and use that prelisting appraisal as the best marketing tool you can.

You only get one chance to make a first impression. Make it the best one you can. Call an experienced Realtor and get the formula right the first time.
