The 80/20 Rule There are two major factors in selling your home:
Pricing Your Property Determining price is the most critical step in preparing your home for sale, so you can get the highest return in the least amount of time.
Pricing Your Property Pricing strategy depends on market conditions Best exposure during the first 3 to 5 weeks Well-priced homes sell quickly The longer a home is on the market, the lower the selling price The “right” price attracts qualified buyers Overpricing a property loses buyers that are looking and are ready to purchase at the “right” price
