Some Things to Consider:
Timing is important:
When selling your home, time is not your friend. When a new home is listed for sale, we market it extensively to other agents and potential buyers. Most of the local working agents and their prospective buyers will see it come on the market right away. Interest will build over the first week or two, with a peak of interest usually at about 1-3 weeks out.
Then, the activity of inquiries and showings will start to decrease rapidly. your home becomes "old news" and "stale" in the eyes of other agents and buyers. Marketing time is prolonged and our initial marketing momentum is lost. If you are not priced right, you may miss showing opportunities, or showings that do occur will not produce an offer.
Could we TEST a higher price?
A common mistake sellers make is pricing their home high in the beginning to "test the market". The thought is "we can always lower the price if we don't receive any offers" or "we need to build in a cushion for negotiation".
Most of the showing activity occurs when the home is first listed. The longer your home remains on the market, the less interest it will generate amongst buyers. Buyers typically feel that they should pay less for a home the longer it has been on the market. At that point you have to face the real possibility of selling for LESS than if you had priced it at fair market value from the start.

Collection of Feedback Data
After all showings, we collect feedback data to help you know exactly what people are saying about your home. This important information can help us fine tune the marketing and presentation of your home to help you get MORE for your home.
In addition to using the most current technology, we still use many traditional marketing strategies to ensure that your home is being seen by as many active buyers as possible. These marketing strategies can include print ads, mass mail campaigns, a sign on your yard, and phone calls to those in our buyer's network.
Pricing Your Home
