How Target Marketing can get you top dollar offers
According to many industry experts, one of the biggest reasons a homeowner doesn't sell their home for their desired price or within an acceptable time frame comes down to the agent they hire for the job. Selecting a "discount" real estate agent / REALTOR® may cause you to sell for far less than the homes are selling for in the immediate area, if you eventually sell at all. If the agent you select plans to simply take some photos, put a sign in the yard, advertise it on a few websites and hold an open house, frankly you can do that yourself and experience the miserable results it creates. Why would you pay someone to do that? A good question to ask the agents you interview is "What can you do to sell my home that I can't do on my own?" If they don't have several good answers to that, they aren't worth ANY fee. You get what you pay for and if you aren't going with a full service marketing professional, it may cost you tens of thousands of dollars as well as months and months of stress and disbelief as to what's happening with your home.
A real estate agent / REALTOR® must understand the art and science behind pricing a home correctly. This has changed drastically over the past 5 years. As an example, pricing a home at $249,900 DOES NOT look "cheaper" than $250,000. It simply eliminates virtually HALF of the buyers that would be looking for a home like yours online. If their search criteria is $225,000 to $250,000 your home will be in that list. But if they choose $250,000 to $275,000 you DO NOT come up in that search. Only an agent operating in the ignorance of the 90's would price a home at a number that would eliminate 50% of your desired buyers instead of pricing it at an even number. This is a great test to see if your agent understands today's marketing world. If they don't, you should remove them from your home IMMEDIATELY.
Listing your home at an unrealistically high price will nearly ALWAYS result in a sale price that is far below the area average comparable sales. When a home is priced above the competition (even if only $3,000) it will oftentimes sit for months and months generating "lowball" offers. And frankly, even if you could get a buyer to agree to pay what you are asking, if there are no sales within one mile that are comparable, the home won't appraise that high and the contract is dead. The buyer can't get financed. A few years ago, you could get it to appraise higher than the area sales. Unfortunately, all of those appraisers are in prison now, so your home will not be able to sell for more than the comparable sales per appraisal guidelines.
