If possible it will be a good idea to have the asking price just a little lower than the overall market price in your area, to encourage more buyers to view it. Many houses priced too high and end up reducing and not sell for a while is because I know a lot of buyer have a price set in their mind, if it is higher than they would like or expected, they rather choose to not view it at all. I have always told my sellers, I do my best to get the maximum price for their properties. But I cannot sell their house if no buyer come to view them. I seen it over and over again, when buyers saw a house they like, they are willing to go all out to get them, it is amazing! Creating multiple offers are one good way for sellers to get the maximum price for their properties. Of course, to prepare your home and stage it before putting it up on the market is another part of selling a home. But that will be in another email.
