As soon as a home owner decides to sell, especially in a declining or static market, they should put their home on the market as soon as possible.
No one has the crystal ball to say when the right buyer will walk through the front door and fall in love with your home. Who knows, that buyer may be out looking this weekend.
You have received good advice below, the holidays are traditionally a slower time of year, and inventory is slightly lower.
The prospective buyers who are looking over the holidays are generally serious buyers.
The key in selling in this market is to price agressively at value.
Most Lenders on new financing these days are requiring their appraisers to use comparabel sales no older than three months.
In pricing your home, you will find that evaluating your property based on sales no older than 3 months, and then pricing your property at value will give you a huge sales advantage.
Many sellers price their property at value + room to negotiage.
Buyers have a lot more inventory to choose from than they did a couple of years ago. As a result they are doing some serious shopping for the best deal.
In pricing at value, your property will be perceived as one of the best deals, and will have a better chance of getting the buyers attention to make the first offer.
Of course the buyer will come in low. But if you have priced at value, while your "competiton" has priced at value +, the buyer will be able to justify (in his mind) the legitimacy of your counter when you counter back.
best of luck in the sale of your home
