All Things Considered Price, Location and Condition Will Sell a House Faster Than Anything

Price, Location and Condition

The title of this post speaks for itself.  There really is no further explanation needed so this post is going to be quite brief.

Birmingham-Hoover Home Sellers

There isn’t much you can do about location if you are planning to sell your house .  Hopefully it’s in a prime location.  But even if it’s not in a prime location, if you really want to get that house sold and not play games, then you need to price it right for the location and make sure it’s in its utmost show ready mode at all times.  Andif it’s an investment property, at the very least, you’ll want to make sure that it isn’t trashed.  Here’s a little secret, if you hire an agent that is willing to list your house for sale for more than the available data supports (a.k.a. overprice it) then don’t count on that agent doing their best to try to sell your overpriced home.  Yes,I know this sounds awfully harsh, but I’m afraid it’s the true.  Personally, I’d much rather walk away from a listing than to overprice it.

Birmingham-Hoover Home Buyers

It’s no secret that homes for sale in prime Birmingham-Hoover locations that are priced right and show well, will sell faster.  The best advice that I can give you is to make your offer like you want that house.  You can play games if you’d like.  You can ignore the advice of your agent and the facts presented to you and watch home after gorgeous home go under contract (with another buyer) if you’d like.  But know this, more often than not,  buyers loose out on homes that they want because they don’t use the available information to make their decisions.  In other words, they wing it.  The best homes, in the best locations that are priced right, almost always command the price that is being asked.  It just can’t get any simpler than that.

My job as a Birmingham-Hoover real estate agent is to provide you with the best information possible so that you can look at the evidence (proof) and make the best decision possible (or not). What you decide to do with that information is up to you.
