How to Save Thousands of Dollars When You Buy a Home

How Sellers Set Their Asking Price


For you to understand how much to offer for a home you’re interested in, it’s important for you to know how sellers price their homes.
Here are 4 common strategies you’ll start to recognize when you begin to view homes:

1. Clearly Overpriced:
Every seller wants to realize the most amount of money they can for their home, and real estate agents know this. If more than one agent is competing for your listing, an easy way to win the battle is to overinflate the value of your home. This is done far too often, with many homes that are priced 10-20% over their true market value. This is not in your best interest, because in most cases the market won’t be fooled. As a result, your home could languish on the market for months, leaving you with a couple of important drawbacks:

your home is likely to be labeled as a “troubled” house by other agents, leading to a lower than fair market price when an offer is ...

How to Sell a Home that Didn't Sell

Expired


If your home has just come off the market and hasn’t sold, don’t be discouraged. The reason it didn’t sell may have nothing to do with your home or the market. In reality, your home may have been one of the more desirable properties for sale. If your listing has expired and you still want results, before you put your home back on the market, take a step back and review your situation.
