Pricing your house right, right from the start, is critical to getting the best possible price.
“How long has it been on the market?” I get this question a LOT from homebuyers. If the house is fresh on the market, they’re much more likely to make an offer, and it will be close to the asking price if not above asking price (depending on the market).
Pricing your house competitively is crucial to generate the most interest from agents and buyers.
According to a recent survey from the National Association of REALTORS®, houses that were on the market two weeks or less received a median of 100 percent of their asking price. Meanwhile, houses that were on the market for three to four weeks received on average only 97 percent of their asking price. For a $500,000 house that’s a difference of $15,000! Those numbers hold true here in Sarasota and Manatee Counties as well.
