|THE ARE ONLY 2 POSSIBLE REASONS
WHY YOUR HOME DID NOT SELL:
THE REALTOR YOU CHOSE
|Let's start from the day someone decides to sell their home. The first and foremost
concern to anyone is "MONEY". Unfortunately, our society looks for the least costly way
to get the job done. And in today's society their are dozens of available options put in
front of a seller. Every option out there, claims to be "the best way to save money".
However, our home is the biggest investment in our lives. We shouldn't be looking for the
cheapest way to sell our homes, we should be looking for the most successful, thorough,
fast and professional way to expose our home to buyers. Because, in the long run, the
cheapest way, ends up costing you more in the end.
SALE BY OWNER".
After months of spending money on their small ads, having to be home to
show it, exposing your family and your home to people that you know nothing about
could be dangerous. Then getting an interested buyer only to find out they couldn't
even afford the price or qualify for the mortgage amount that they need. THEY
FINALLY REALIZED it's time to call a Full time, professional Realtor. At this point,
they realized that instead of saving money, they lost money. Some of our clients
even had their homes sold, and then during the inspection process their deal fell
apart because they had no one to assist them with those issues.
THE BOTTOM LINE IS: DON'T SEEK OUT THE BEST WAY TO SAVE MONEY
ESPECIALLY IN TODAYS MARKET, chances are you'll get what you pay for!......SEEK
OUT THE BEST FULL TIME REALTOR. THE REALTOR WITH THE MOST
EXPERIENCE, AND THE ABILITY TO EXPOSE YOUR HOUSE TO THE PUBLIC,
MORE THAN ANY OTHER REALTOR. CLICK HERE TO SEE
HOW TO CHOSE THE RIGHT REALTOR.
Remember, you wouldn't look for the cheapest doctor, lawyer, or accountant to get the job
done..............You would look for the best in their profession with the highest success
As homeowners ourselves, we all tend to want to "TRY" to get the most money possible
when we sell our home. However, "most money possible" is obtained by getting the
house sold quickly. Even though a Realtor may tell you your home should be listed at a
lower price than you want or need, a lot of homeowners (and Realtors, just to get your
listing) decide to "TRY" higher and see what happens.
Well, here's what happens......you end up losing money and time, creating a negative
impression as a "stale listing", and down the road end up selling it for LESS than you
originally could have sold it for, had you priced it correctly from the start.
There is only "ONE" way to price your home when you list it!
Regardless of what you may need to pay off bills, or what you may want, to be able to buy
something better...............none of that comes into play.
YOUR HOME IS WORTH WHAT THE MARKET SAYS IT'S WORTH!
When we list a home, we do a thorough market analysis. We, go back approximately 6
months and compare all homes that sold in your area, that are similar to your home.
Just like an appraiser - we note lot size, bedrooms, total rooms, bathrooms, style,
The number we come up with IS what your home will sell for.
Another thing seller's who "overprice" don't realize
If a buyer does come along that doesn't know the area and doesn't have someone to
represent him (to inform him) and offers to pay for an overpriced home, when he tries to
obtain a mortgage, that lender will send out an appraiser (to make sure the bank is
lending more money on a house than it's worth), and it will "UNDER APPRAISE".
At that point the buyer will be rejected for the mortgage or has the option of coming up
with the difference in the appraised value and what he agreed to pay..........and there is
not many people out there that will, or can, put up thousands of dollars more to purchase
a house that the bank says "isn't worth it".
SO REMEMBER, AS MUCH AS YOU'D
LIKE THE EXTRA MONEY, AND WE ALL
THINK OUR HOMES ARE GREAT!!!
BE REALISTIC AND PRICE YOUR HOME
EXACTLY WHERE THE MARKET SAYS IT
SHOULD BE PRICED!! OR YOUR JUST
LOSING MONEY IN THE LONG RUN!!
