20Selling Price Vs. Timing ACTIVYWEEKS ON MARKETTiming is extremely important in the real estate market.A property attracts the most activity from the real estate community and potential buyers when it is first listed.It has the greatest opportunity to sell when it is new on the market.If the home is over-priced it may become stale on the market.
21Pricing Factors IMPORTANCE OF INTELLIGENT PRICING ASKING PRICE +15%10%ASKINGPRICE+10%30%PERCENTAGEOF BUYERSMarket Value60%-10%75%-15%90%As this triangle graph illustrates, more buyers purchase their properties at market value than above market value. If you price your property at market value, you are exposing it to a much greater percentage of prospective buyers and you are increasing your opportunity for a sale.If you price your home above market value, you’ll likely lose money!
22Pricing Misconceptions .Pricing MisconceptionsIt is very important to price your property at a competitive market value when first signing of the listing agreement. Historically, your first offer is usually your best offer.WHATYOURNEIGHBORSAYSWHATANOTHERAGENTSAYSWHATYOUPAIDWHATYOUNEEDWHATYOUWANTCOSTTO REBUILDTODAYBuyers & Sellers Determine ValueThe value of your property is determined by what a BUYER is willing to pay and a SELLER is willing to accept in today’s market. Buyers make their pricing decision based on comparing your property to other property SOLD in your area.

25Preparing For The Offer In a “Buyer’s Market,” offers to purchase routinely come in “low,” whereas in a “Seller’s Market,” offers are closer to the asking price. Do not be offended by any offer received. Be offended by buyers who tour your property and don’t submit an offer.ACCEPTANCE. Signed by all parties, dated, delivered… congratulations, you’re on your way to having your property sold!REJECTION. Unconditional… unfortunately, your home is still on the market.COUNTER OFFER. Any change to the contract constitutes a counter offer. You are now in the renegotiation stage.NO ACTION. Equals rejection. Your home is still on the market.

29SELLER SEES THEIR HOUSE InspectionsInspections and potential repairs are the number one reason sales don’t close. Typically, buyers have a certain number of days in which to inspect the property and accept or reject the property based upon these mechanical and structural inspections. Inspectors are supposed to find all the problems!SELLER SEES THEIR HOUSEBUYER SEES YOUR HOUSEINSPECTORSEES THE HOUSESave Yourself Time, Money and Disappointment — Do Deferred Maintenance Now!
30Home Warranty PlansHome warranty plans go a long way to alleviate some risks and concerns. For a modest price, the seller can provide to the buyer a one year warranty covering specified heating, plumbing, electrical, water heater or appliance breakdowns. Coverage under most plans commences at closing. In all cases, there are important limitations and exclusions (example: appliances/systems must be operative at commencement of coverage).
