If you are looking to sell your home, you may be tempted to test the waters and price it high. The truth of the matter is you’d be better off to price it at fair market value to capture buyers in more than one price range.
- pre-qualified (get your paperwork ready) rather than pre-approved.
- Be flexible with your move in dates if you can be.
- Put down the strongest deposit you can.
- Consider an escalation clause.
In a seller’s market, some are concerned that if they sell their home, they won’t find what they are looking for. The good news is that it only takes one home to come on the market to be the right home. If the timing isn’t stellar, you may have to move twice. Keep in mind that it’s all worth it as you will receive the best price on your home and be completely non-contingent for the next home.
