Why Higher May Not Be Better

Overpricing your home is the most common mistake you can make as a seller. The reality is if your home is priced fairly and is in a condition and location that appeals to the average buyer, you should be able to sell your home regardless of the market. However some sellers simply insist their home is worth more than any objective market analysis or appraisal would indicate. If you overprice your home, buyers who should be looking at your home won't see it since most good Realtors won't show overpriced properties. Listen to your Realtor and price it right the first time.

Some try to raise their price slightly to allow for negotiations. Not a terrible ida but depends on what "slightly" is.
