When you’re selling your home, whether it’s a townhouse in University City, a luxury condo in Uptown Charlotte, or a beautiful house in Mint Hill, you want to sell it quickly—even if you don’t feel like you’re in a rush.
Why You Want Your Home to Sell as Quickly as Possible
The longer a home sits on the market, the lower its final sales price will be. That’s a statistic that all Charlotte Realtors® know.
One of the most common reasons a home sits on the market longer than it should is pricing. When you overprice your home, you’re alienating an entire set of buyers who can’t afford it. When buyers who can afford it find your home beside another home that’s larger, has more features, or is in a more convenient location, they’re not going to choose yours.
Many homeowners choose to lower the price after a few months, but at that time, the listing has become “stale.” Potential buyers won’t see it in new searches, and when they do see it, they’re going to wonder why the owner had to lower the price (and why nobody else wanted to buy it).
The key: Price your home correctly right out of the gate by listening to your agent. Your Realtor knows the market, and he or she knows what it will bear. Your house is only worth what a buyer is willing to pay for it, no matter what features it has or how many things you’ve upgraded inside.
