What You Should Know About Pricing Your Home Correctly - Seller Tips

Sellers Tips for Getting Your Home Sold For the Best Price In The Least Amount of Time

Sellers, You probably hear this all the time. Price Your home Correctly to get the best price and sell the quickest. Some of you roll your eyes when you hear Realtors Say that Phrase. We often hear "I just want to try it to see what happens". Then there are those who know what I'm talking about, price it correctly and Start Packing! I came across a great example of what happens when you don't price your home correctly. I've left out the name of the neighborhood and addresses to protect the innocent.

Below are 6 homes, built by the same builder, sold in the same neighborhood over a 6 month time period.

Overpricing Your House for Sale vs. Pricing Your Home to Sell

Exhibit 1 - How Overpricing Your House Can Hurt You

House #1  
0.97 163
House #2  
0.99 125
0.98 144


Exhibit 2 - How Pricing Your House Correctly Can Help you Sell Faster for More Money

House #3  
0.99 15
House #4  
0.99 37
House #5  
1.00 5
House #6  
1.00 5
1.00 16


  Sale Price per Sq. Ft.
SP/LP =   Sale Price vs. List Price
LADOM =   Listing Days on Market

**RESULTS of Pricing Correctly from the Beginning: As you can see, there was a $10 per sq. ft. price difference. If the average house in this neighborhood is 3000 sq. ft., That's $30,000!! PLUS - that was also 128 days sellers in exhibit #2 didn't have the hassel of selling their homes. Excessive days on the market can also equate to lost opportunities AND lost mortgage, maintenance & utility payment (if vacant).

If you're ready to get your home sold for the best price in the least amount of time, don't hesitate to contact Carla. Because if It's Time to Move, It's Time to CALL CARLA! 919-602-8489 or carla@carlafreund.com
