      Price isn’t Everything!

      If you’ve ever sold a house, you know that the offer represents the most dramatic moment in the entire transaction.

      The phone rings. It’s your REALTOR®. And they say – “we have an offer!”

      And you say – “how much?”

      It’s just human nature. I was that way every time I sold a house. I wanted to know the price! Whether I was going to make a handsome profit. Whether I’d have enough money to make a huge down payment on my next house. Whether all my hard work getting the place ready for sale – paid off.

      Get it in Writing

      We’re going to wrap up with one of the most important parts of any real estate transaction. Four words, that will protect you every time, whether you’re the buyer, or the sellers. And those words are?

      Get it – in writing.

      I can’t stress how important that is. No matter which side of the transaction you’re on, everything you agree to, every penny involved in the deal, every date on the calendar and every ‘what-if’ scenario – has to be right there in the contract – in writing.

      I mention this – because if you’ve ever bought or sold a house, you know – there’s a lot of talk. And that’s great. The seller’s side talks about what a wonderful house it is. The buyer’s side talks about changing that bedroom into an office. And all of that’s fine.

      But when the talk turns to substantive issues, that cost time, or money, get it in writing.

        Five Ways NOT to Price Your House

        You know, we always say – the most important part of your sales strategy – in any market – is setting the right price. Too Low? You’re giving it away. Too high? The place will just sit there, week after week, month after month.

        Just look at the signs! Other houses will go from ‘for sale’ to ‘under contract,’ or ‘sale pending.’ And finally – sold! While your overpriced house will still have a for sale sign out front – or even worse – the dreaded ‘price reduced!’

        Pricing Parity

        Should you WAIT – to sell your house?

        I mention this because a lot of people who are thinking about selling say – they’re going to wait. They see prices rising. So, they want their house to become more valuable, before they sell it. It’s always better to sell high, right? Well, usually. But it all depends on what happens AFTER you sell. So let’s talk about that.

        If you sell your house when it’s value is sky high – you could very well end up with a big, big profit! And that, of course, is an excellent result.
