With Real Estate Prices On The Rise, Could This Be A Good Time To Sell Your Home?

by John Stone

Putting your home on the market can be one of the most daunting decisions you will ever make, as your home is more than likely one of your biggest investments you have ever made. Many important factors will go into the decision of whether or not it is the right time to sell. Is it a buyer or sellers' market? Is the market value of your home more than your purchase price or at least high enough to pay off my mortgage? When is the best time to put the house on the market? How will local foreclosures and short sales affect the value of your home? What were the market conditions when you purchased your home? Will you get a high enough ROI in the current marketplace?Fortunately, when you hire an experienced Realtor® that studies market trends day in and day out, you will be able to find answers to all of these questions and more. 

Your agent will be able to advise you on how to prepare your home, how to price and present it, as well as how to time the introduction of your home to the marketplace. A top notch agent will have all kinds of marketing and pricing tips and tricks to help get you the highest return on your investment.For example, did you know that by changing the list price of your home by just $1, that you can potentially double your pool of buyers? Did you know that buyers are willing to offer more for a home when they perceive buyer competition, even if there are no other offers on the table? Did you know that smell is one of the most powerful triggers for memory and that baked goods will often be used by agents to evoke a positive memory of feeling relaxed and at home?
