There is a fine art to selling a home to get top dollar. Any realtor who brags that they sell homes within a day (or an hour) of them being on the market, AND does this regularly, makes me skeptical.
Have I done this before? Of course.
Do I do it regularly? No.
If a home goes quickly, it is either priced right, or underpriced. Unfortunately, a lot of realtors will underprice homes to sell quickly. The real key to this is to price it correctly per market research, promote the home prior to any showings, and then bring in multiple offers. Using this method, it takes about 5 days before we lock in the final offer.
Why do the majority of realtors choose to take a first day offer? It’s a sure thing, and they get their commission and move onto the next deal. Whose interests are being served in this scenario though? You guessed it, not the client’s.
So, do I regularly sell homes in an hour, or on the first day? No.
Do I sell homes within 5 days, and regularly sell above list price? Absolutely.
Whose interests are being served with this method? The client’s… every time. I work for them, period.
This isn’t rocket science, but you’d be surprised how much you can get for a home by proper pricing, marketing, and above all else, exercising a little patience in the process. So whether you are selling a gentrified bungalow in The Heights, a luxury home in Cypress, or a charming ranch style home in Tomball, make sure you hire a realtor that has your interests first.
