First and formost...communication is the Key! Sit down with your realtor and have a heart to heart! Is there a written marketing plan? Have each of you studied and followed the plan? Are you tweeking it to respond to the way the market is acting? The market is king...preparing to attract the most excited buyers is a team effort. Youir home needs to be spotless and as perfect as you can get it. All the make-up and all the pretty stuff needs to be done and ready...every showing. The buyer then chooses your home......or another that better suits their value propostion (Price, condition, location, need for extra work, etc). So what is the feedback on showings? What are the buyers' agents telling you about your home? Remember this simple formula....no matter what the buyers' agent tells you....if you are not getting offers....your asking price is too high. Even in todays tough market...homes are flying off the market...and I'm serious...flyiing off the market when buyers feel that they are buying a good value. Its their money...and they are going to maximize it!! Its a buyers best time to purchase!! (a time when prices are depressed, money is cheap). Buyers are in the KING in the negotiations.... and they know it. BTW, you are king on the next purchase of your next home!
Think about it...if there are 30-100 other competing homes out there for buyers to choose... you need to decide why they should choose you....What makes your home the ONE (out of all that inventory) they should choose? Until you answer that question the home you now own will continue to be yours and not someone elses. Play hardball, become the best choice. You are playing to win...to beat out all those other homes. whats it gonna take? Your choice, your money, your effort, your time.
