When you?re selling your home in The Dalles, the price you set is a critical factor in the return you?ll receive. That?s why you need a professional evaluation from an experienced Realtor?. Becky Schertenleib and Nan Wimmers can provide you with an honest assessment of your home, based on several factors, including:
? Market activity
? Condition of your home
? Repairs or improvements needed
? Selling timeframe
In real estate terms, market value is the price at which a particular house, in its current condition, should sell within 30 to 90 days.
If the price of your home is too high, this could cause several things:
? Limits buyers. Potential buyers may not view your home because it appears to be out of their buying range.
? Limits showings. Other salespeople may be more reluctant to view your home.
? Used as leverage. Other Realtors? may use this home to drive the sale of other homes that are better-priced.
? Extended stay on the market. When a home is on the market too long, it may be perceived as defective. Buyers may wonder, ?what?s wrong,? or ?why hasn?t this sold??
? Lower price. An overpriced home, still on the market beyond the average selling time, could lead to a lower selling price. To sell it, you will have to reduce the price ? sometimes several times. In the end, you?ll probably get less than if it had been properly priced in the first place.
Realtors? have known it for years ? well-kept homes that are properly priced in the beginning always get you the fastest sale for the best price! And that?s why you need a professional to assist you in the selling of your home.
