BUT, remember real estate is regional so it is best to consult someone in your area who has info on the comps and such. I would hate to see you sit on the market 3 more months and then have to "chase down the market" with price reductions and such.
I wish you the BEST of luck.
The realtors work for themselves not for you. They rather make less fast and not more the old fashion way by earning it. The market excuse is called PANIC SALE and that is against the law.
You cannot break their hearts in your LISTING PRICE.
You KNOW that your price is too high, and you are justifying it to yourself.
As Dr, Phil would say; "Let us know how it works for you."
Many Realtor want you to keep lowing the price to make a fast deal You end up in the red lower then the price you bought it for. I sold homes by Owner and saved.
They dont like the yard ,, they can fix it up as they like, No home is going to be perfect unless you build it yourself and if you have a contractor it will be even less perfect unless you inspect each nail and stud.
Get someone who will work with you if you need an Realtor not against you.
1. Your home is overpriced (Most common reason -- sellers always think their house is worth more than the market or potential buyer thinks it's worth)
2. Your home doesn't "show" well (add to that "smell"....unwashed laundry? cigarette smoke? mold/mildew? cat/dog poop/urine? exotic food?)
3. You're in a bad location
4. You have a lousy listing agent (do you even have one?)
5, You are battling competition or market conditions --- (if you're surrounded by short sales and foreclosures, you have even more of challenge since they're probably priced less or more competitively than yours)
6. You have ineffective marketing (how are you reaching your target audience? Are you advertising online? Do you have a lot of good pictures? Virtual tour?)
If you are not getting showings, it probably means that the property is just priced above what consumers deem market value.
All the Best,
