Pricing Your Home
Your Burt • Ladner agent will carefully analyze your property and recommend a price and position in the marketplace. This includes reviewing neighborhood properties sold recently to determine competitive pricing.
Our goal is to maximize your proceeds while minimizing the time it takes to sell your property. Statistics clearly indicate that the longer a property is on the market, the lower the final sale price will be.
Pricing your home correctly from the very start is the single most important thing you can do to ensure a successful sale - one that is quick and puts the most money in your pocket.
Homeowners are often tempted to set the initial list price higher than fair market value because they think they can simply lower the price later if the property doesn’t sell.
Setting the price too high in the beginning can drastically increase the time it takes to sell and typically achieves a final sale price that is well below market value.
A listing generates intense interest during its first two weeks on the market, but activity drops off by more than 80% in the third week and beyond - subsequent price reductions notwithstanding.
Properties that sell in the
first four weeks
typically achieve a sale price within 1.9% of their fair market value.
