Why It’s Important To Price Your Home Fairly

When selling a house, there are a number of things you can do to make your listing more attractive to prospective buyers. Some obvious examples include staging and getting good photos. But the number one thing you can do to make sure your home gets a good response from buyers is to price it right. After all, even a perfectly staged house with professional photos isn’t going to sell quickly if it’s priced way too high. And, according to a recent analysis, lowering your price after your home’s been on the market a while isn’t necessarily as effective as setting the price correctly the first time. In fact, when comparing the number of online views a home gets the day it’s listed to the day of a price drop, the initial listing gets almost three and a half times the number of views. In other words, you’ll never get another chance to make a first impression. And the longer your home has been listed without selling, the more likely buyers will assume there’s a reason no one’s bought it yet. The good news is there’s an easy way to avoid falling into this trap. Simply follow the guidance of the pros you’ve hired to help sell your house. They’ll be able to give you an accurate assessment of your home’s current market value and help you avoid pricing it too high for interested buyers. More here.
