Why Is This?

Many important decisions weight heavily on a home seller’s mind:

The most critical one for getting a home sold is where to set the asking price…

This decision is also the one most wrought with faulty logic for the current marketplace-as you will see…

Sellers have three choices when setting tyhe asking price for their home:

1. Below market value

2. Real, or current, market value

3. Above market value

…..and the biggest blunder they make is to take a negotiating stance when making this choice……

They say to themselves, “Well, I know prospective buyers wont give me a full-price offer, so I’llprice my home above market value and have room to negotitate down.”

This SEEMS so logical… but when you dig a little deeper, you realize sellers do themselves a grave disservice with this line of thinking because that higher price causes agents to exclude the home form those they show.  With so many homes to choose from today, agents simply will not waste their clients time by showing homes that are overpriced.
