How important is it to price your house for sale correctly? Take a look at these figures the percentage of ORIGINALlist price received was 93.6% while the percentage of list price received was 96.8%! This means that homes are going on the market priced too high, sitting for a while before the price gets lowered, and then they sell for that price, so the homes that are priced correctly get closer to the list price.
How does this affect how your house sells? Homes priced above market or even at market price these days are regularly passed over by potential buyers who are looking for a deal or in most cases these days a STEAL!! they see it make a mental note of it being too high and then when the price is dropped they already have a negative feeling towards the house!
Price them to sell!!!!
The inventory of homes available is 1,391, down from 2010 when it was 1,649
