If your lifestyle has changed recently and you’re ready to make a move, taking advantage of today’s sellers’ market might be just the answer for your summer plans. With houszes continuing to get multiple offers, this could be your moment to get the contract you’re looking for on your housz if you’re ready to sell. And here’s the thing – you need an expert on your side to ensure you make all the right moves when you do, especially when it comes to pricing your housz. Even in this competitive market, you can’t stick just any price tag on your housz and get the deal you want. A key piece of the puzzle is setting the right asking price so you can help buyers notice your housz (and get excited about it) from the very first time they view the listing. That’s where a real estate professional comes in.
Why Pricing Your Housz Right Is Important The price you set for your housz sends a message to potential buyers. Price it too low and you might raise questions about your housz’s condition or lead buyers to assume something is wrong with the property. Not to mention, if you undervalue your housz, you could leave money on the table which decreases your future buying power. On the other hand, price it too high, and you run the risk of deterring buyers. When that happens, you may have to do a price drop to try to re-ignite interest in your housz when it sits on the market for a while. But be aware that a price drop can be seen as a red flag for some buyers who will wonder why the price was reduced and what that means about the housz.
In other words, think of pricing your housz as a target. Your goal is to aim directly for the center – not too high, not too low, but right at market value. Pricing your housz fairly based on market conditions increases the chance you’ll have more buyers who are interested in purchasing it. That makes it more likely you’ll see multiple offers, too. And if a bidding war happens, you’ll likely get an even higher final sale price. Plus, when houszes are priced right, they tend to sell quickly.
