Home Selling in 10309>Question Details

Jack n Jill, Home Seller in 10309

Which agent or office will have the greatest success selling our property at a premium price not a bargain price?

Asked by Jack n Jill, 10309 Thu Sep 12, 2013

We don't have the most modern & stylish home. A new owner may want to replace the carpet, paint or install wallpaper, update the baths, kitchen, windows, heat & a/c, but everything works & our house presents itself clean & uncluttered with a nice lawn & yard. So who can get us the highest price rather than just the quick sale?

The answer is in your question. If you find an agent willing to spend an extended amount of time, e.g. 6 months or more, to market your home, then you will get the highest price the market will bear.

Choosing the right Agent is indeed important -- sometimes it's not the "#1 Agent" in town that will be the best match for you. You will be spending a lot of time with your Agent (in person, via phone, via email). You want an Agent that you can work comfortably with and trust. Trust is important -- he/she will be working hard to market your home -- making suggestions as to how your home will show its best so you can get top dollar. Sometimes it's the Agent with fewer Listings that will be able to give you the most attention.

That said, your Agent will suggest a Price Range that reflects the current market -- a home can only sell for its "market value" -- what a Buyer is willing to pay. Assuming the Buyer is getting a Mortgage, the Bank will send out an Appraiser -- this assures that the Buyer doesn't overpay for the home.

I'd suggest that you visit a few Sunday Open Houses -- meet some local Agents -- interview a few in your home setting -- you are sure to find someone who's a good match for you.

Keep in mind that a home is worth what someone is willing to pay for it; it doesn’t matter what the seller needs or potential buyers can afford to spend. Market conditions do matter as does the immediacy for a transaction to take place. In setting a price, it is in the seller’s best interest to focus on the current market conditions; therefore contact a few agents from different realty companies and ask for a cma, comparative market analysis; review the data and go from there....

Please keep in mind property value must be verified by Lenders Appraiser. Buyers are extremely savvy. They do there homework or they ask their agents for advice. A buyer’s agent will do a comparative market analysis and show it to the buyer prior to making an offer. Fair market value is what a buyer is willing to pay and a seller is willing to accept in an open competitive market. There are sometimes personal reasons why a buyer may pay a little more for a particular home. Condition and age of the home is another factor. The home would still need to appraise. No buyer wants to feel as if they are overpaying. Sellers should not want to put them selves in a position of having a home under contract that cannot appraise. Even all cash buyers will look at the recent comparative sales in the area. If you price it right you will sell it without appraisal worries.

A good agent will show you realistic and comparable statistics on similar homes and market your home to the best of his/her ability. However, its up to the public how much they're willing to spend on your home and up to you if you're willing to accept that offer.

Pricing a home is very important. While you don't want to give your house away you also don't want it to be on the market for 2yrs+ as I've seen.

I am very familiar with the neighborhoods in the 10309 zip and I would be happy to give you a comparative market value estimate. Please call me at 917-270-5379.

Jack n Jill,

A proficient Realtor will be one who runs comparative sales in your immediate neighborhood of comparable properties. The result will be a range of prices based on condition.

As yours has apparently not been updated, you already know at which end of the spectrum you will fall.

If you are really looking for a quick sale, price it a few hundred dollars less than the other currently marketed properties, but make sure you are less than one that has also not been updated.

I would be glad to discuss it further with you; feel free to give us a call.

It is not the listing agent, Marketing can only go so far if the house is not priced correctly
