This article is proof that if you list your property and it’s priced properly it WILL SELL!
On March 10th, 2011 I listed 11 Barn Owl Overlook. Four days later it was under agreement. The buyers had been looking for weeks and just could not find the right home at the right value. On the first showing, the buyers decided that this house had everything they needed, was the right price and they made their move.
On March 16th, 2011 I listed 13 Highwood Way. A vacation style home that is rock solid but in need of updating. Fifteen days later we are under agreement!!
The homes are different enough and priced $65,000 apart that they attracted buyers looking for different features at different price points.
The point is…buyers are out there, but buyers will only step up to the plate when they see value. You don’t have to sell a property at a give away price. You just have to list the property at a price that is better than the homes competing in the same price range. Buyers will look at every property in their price range. This happens with every buyer and they are the one’s that determine market value.
Here’s another great example: Right now in Eastman there are 16 homes priced between $300,000-$350,000 and only 1 is contingent. That one buyer probably looked at a minimum of 10 to 12 houses and picked the one house that they felt was the best value. That house was on the market for 23 days!! It just stood out from the rest of the competition.
