Sell your house more quickly and for more money!

Statistics are now available in the Triangle area in North Carolina to demonstrate what we real estate professionals have been preaching to sellers forever! Price and condition! Houses that show well and are priced well show a big statistical advantage over other houses. It affects Days on Market (DOM) and % of listing price. And, yes, if the condition is good and the price is fair, you can even find multiple offers on your house! This Spring I was involved in FOUR multiple offers!  And we sold one of our listings in the FIRST week!  Those were in great condition and properly priced.  Price range does have something to do with that – first time buyer properties have many more prospects than do the higher priced homes. How much of a difference does pricing/condition make?  There are actual statistics that show this...

In the Triangle area, according to the TARR Report®, a local real estate trends analyst, pricing can make a very big difference in the amount of time it takes to sell a house and % of list price that a house gets. According to Anfindson’s reports, re-sale properties that were priced correctly took only an average of 49 days to sell and sold for an average of 96% of their sales price if they sold when they were still listed at their original listing price. If, however, a property sold after the listing price was reduced from its original price, the numbers changed dramatically – 115 days to sell on average and for only 85% of its original listed price. The moral to this story is - have your house "spit polished perfect" the first day it hits the market and price it right to begin with!
