HOME SELLER TIPS | Effective Pricing Leads to Success
Updated: Feb 10
According to a recent report, about 90% of homebuyers in Dutchess County surf the Web to begin their home search. That means home buyers in Lagrangeville are well aware of what properties are available on the market and the prices they are selling for.
Therefore, now more than ever, pricing is the key to selling your home in Dutchess county.
Some sellers think that a higher price will give them some negotiating room.
But in fact, many buyers do not even look at a property that is overpriced, much less make an offer on it.
This can lead to the property's becoming "shop-worn." Buyers often inquire about the length of time a property has been on the market. If it has been on the market a long time,
they wonder if there is something wrong with it. The sellers then have to drop the price, taking less than they might have if they had priced it correctly to begin with.
Homes that are well-priced in Dutchess county attract the buyers in their price range. The buyer's perception is that the home is a good buy, and then the seller is positioned to receive the listing price or close to it.
