Birmingham Real Estate: You've Got Options: July 2011

If You Want To Get It Sold - Drop the Price!

If I am not mistaken, I believe that this is what one would call Leah's post:

HITTING PAY DIRT!

Did she nail this or WHAT?

If You Want To Get It Sold - Drop the Price!

Euros and HouseHas your home been languishing on the market, without any offers or even showings?  Well that's a clear indication that you just might be overpriced.  In this current market and economy price is still king and it's still the single most important determining factor in how quickly your home will sell.

How do you know if your home is overpriced?  Here are 10 sure indications.

  1. You priced your home based on other homes currently for sale, instead of homes that actually sold.
  2. Despite the fact that we're in a declining market and prices are going down, you believe your home is the exception to the rule and is worth more.
  3. You priced your home to include the value of how much you spent on improvements to it.
  4. You based the price of your home on an old appraisal - old being older than 3 months.
  5. You think your home is unique and priced it accordingly even though it the same size, age, condition and location as other comparables.
  6. You believe that your home needs a special buyer and that special buyer that just falls in love with your home will be willing to pay any price (no matter how ridiculously high) to get it.
  7. You've had many showings but no offers.
  8. Your home has been on the market now for over a year without selling.
  9. Your original realtor wouldn't list the house at your inflated price, so you listed with someone else who would.
  10. You are getting no showings.  OK, this should be #1.  No one perceives value in your home at this current price.

Time to get real.   The market has spoken.  The market has rejected your home at this price.  If  you want to get it sold,  DROP THE PRICE!
