The most important aspect when selling your home is the pricing.
It’s well worth spending the time to make sure you get the pricing right.
When you first got to market it’s a time called the honeymoon period. The house is fresh, there are eager buyers, and no one has preconceived ideas about the house. There’s none of the negativity that might come to a house that’s been on the market a long time.
Make the most of the attention
Those first few weeks are vitally important. The existing pool of buyers is going to look at the property with the price in mind. If the market decides it’s over priced, then they are unlikely to look at that property again. The opportunity has been missed because they’ve already seen it.
After those initial weeks, you only have the new buyers that are coming into the market each month, which is much smaller than the total number who would have been interested when you first came onto the market.
Put the time into getting it right
It can be difficult to price, but it’s worth spending the time to get it right. Be realistic and use all the tools available to you. You need to talk seriously about the price you go with.
When priced appropriately you will often get an offer within the first couple of weeks of being on the market. You might be tempted to think that’s a bit quick. But the first offer is very often the best offer, as that’s when there will be the most interest in your property.
