Just - thinking of selling -
In a normal market, the seller who thinks he wants to sell, does not.
Only sellers who know that they must sell, do.
This spring of 2013 is NOT a normal market.
In today strong sellers market, properties attract offers whether the seller is highly motivated or not,
That is why 16 agents hopped on your inquiry within a few short days.
In ordinary times,agents want to work with "motivated" sellers, because unmotivated sellers find ways to avoid getting their property sold.
In today's market, this is much less important. A "market price" listing might produce ten bids, a higher priced listing might only get a couple of offers. -
The point is, even listings that are priced over the competition are getting some action, so there is no need to probe the fullness of your motivation to sell. The buyers have enough motivation for both sides.
Still, I miss the old days a little bit, I would want to ask you to consider the possibility that continuing to hold the rental property for income, tax advantages, and appreciation might be more advantageous to you than disposing it, at this time.
Of course that is not advantageous to me, because I would not be getting a commission out of you.. - this time.
But if you liked the advise to hold the property through to gain more value through appreciation, you might decide to list with me at the point when you really need to sell a few years later.
