Remain focused on your goal which is SELLING YOUR HOME!
If you were to ignore the comps and statistics shared with you by your real estate professional and list your home 30% above market value...the agent...and hopefully you...know your home will NEVER sell. You, however will expect your agent to spend time and resources and MONEY on your behalf. In this situation a 5 year contract would seem appropriate since there exists no true intention to sell the home.
Your agent will tell you the 'optimum' list price for your home. You choose to add the real estate fee to the top of this price, Now you are 15% over market value. Your home gets a few lookers, all the listing agents in the area have reviewed the home and are leveraging it to sell their 'real value' listings. The only offers you will get are from those who have no concern for insulting the seller with a predatory offer. Clearly this is not a strategy to sell a home. A listing contract of 1 year, in the real hope you adjust the list price, is appropriate.
Of course you could take the advise of your real estate professional and understand the 'optimum' price is the one that will establish the real value of tangible and quality of life factors regarding your home. Listing at this price will yield predictable results. Based on historic trends, the days on market can be quantified. The listing contract should cover this span of time. Wishful thinking will not overcome the real market conditions..HOWEVER....
Your agent will share with you strategies to compress this time window and alter the outcome to conform your your time and financial requirements. Yes, you can sell your home in 90 days...Yes, a 90 day listing contract is appropriate ONLY when you are truly committed to selling your home. It can be done but only with your cooperation.
You save no money, you receive no benefit, there is little purpose in being distracted by anything other than the result for which you want. Do you want your home to be For Sale or SOLD. Seriously, the choice is yours.
It is the home owner who sells their home...not the real estate agent. The difference between For Sale and Sold is you. If you know it takes 45 minutes to bake a cake, exactly what would you do if someone told you to do it in 15 minutes?
