The majority of buyer activity on a new listing occurs within the first 4 weeks of the initial marketing period. For this reason it is important that you have your home in the Best Condition and at the Best Price on its first exposure to the market.
Priced Right – From the Start:
Research shows that the longer a property is on the market the more difficult it is to sell. It is a mistake to believe that you will get more for a property by asking more. You usually get less because fewer buyers will consider it when it is placed on the market. The right buyers will not see it. The property usually stays on the market so long that it tends to become stale. If you plan to adjust your price at the time of sale, it is better to adjust the price now and attract serious buyers from the beginning.
