Since paying closing fees typically does not have an impact on attracting buyers we would recommend going the route of lowering the price. Since the price is usually the very first feature noted by potential buyers, a lower price may make the biggest difference in your marketing campaign.
Doesn't matter if it is still priced too high for the area. You need to price it at or just below what the competition is at to make it attractive to buyers. See what similar homes in the same condition, size and area are listed at and price it accordingly.
Make sure the house shows at its best as well. How does the condition of the house compare to the others in the area. It should meet or surpass the competition.
A house that shows well and is priced right will atract buyers.
That will attract the buyers............it's your first line of defense.....especially on the internet and with the other agents (assuming you are listed or cooperating with agents).
You might wind up having to do both to sell your home....time will tell..........without knowing your area or home, it's hard to say.
In this market you can pretty much assume that buyers will ask for closing costs, especially if your home is a first time home buyer type home. Closing costs can be addressed once an offer comes in and then negotiate on price with them.
First take a look at your pictures, what the buyers will see first online. If your home is not appealing via the computer screen there is a good chance they might not want to see. Undoubtedly price is the number one solution to all objectives. If you home is with in 5% of market value and you are still not getting showings then there just might not be much demand for your type of home/price/location.
What price range is your home?
The best way to attract showings and offers for your property is listed at the right price, according to the current market. Are you working with a real estate professional who made a comparative market before determining the selling price? ...... Remember no one will buy or sell a property at higher or lower price, especially at the present time. Good luck.
