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!
