For the last few years we have seen lower than "normal" inventories in our active retirement communities. For all intents and purposes we are in a Sellers market with home seemingly flying off the market before they even have a chance to hit the MLS
Because of this, Sellers (and some agents) think you can put just about any price on a house and it will sell. This is not true as evidenced by some of the homes that have been listed for 45 days or more. There are many factors that determine where a home should be priced for sale. Condition & location are the two primary factors to consider. But here in the retirement communities the model could also be a factor as well the size of a home
If you are thinking of selling your home, you need to have an experienced professional that is familiar with your community. One with a proven track record, that can move your house as quickly, professionally, and for as much profit to you as possible. There can be a fine line between getting the maximum price for your home and listing it too high where it lingers on the market and Buyers then wonder what is wrong with the house.
Because many of our buyers are coming from other states or countries it is also vitally important you are working with a Realtor® that will give you every edge possible using technology, social media and the internet. If you plan on selling a home in the near future, I encourage you to me call for a Home Evaluation so you can see the many tools I use to not only market your home but to keep you informed along the way to getting your home under contract.
I have included links below, to articles that may be of interest to you as a seller. Below that you will find a link to free Home Seller Reports and to the left you will find a Sellers Toolkit. Selling a home is a partnership between homeowner & realtor. In order for my clients to reach a successful sale and close of escrow it takes teamwork & information is key. In order to get top dollar for a home in today's market, it is essential homeowners have their homes looking their absolute best.
