If your home isn’t listed with a Realtor,

it might as well be You have a home for sale but no one is seeing it. Maybe because it isn’t listed with a professional Realtor. Realtors make it easy for you to buy or sell your home. They have access to a pool of serious home buying prospects... and a Multiple Listing Service that can offer buyers the affordable home of their choice. They do the legwork, the paperwork, and the hard work to help you sell your home quickly.

THE BENEFITS

OF

PROPER PRICING

When you determine your home’s price, beware of the pitfalls of overpricing. Logically, you would think that the higher the price of your house the more money you will receive for it, but there is a fine line between supply and demand. Potential buyers who see your home’s listing price may bypass even looking at it without considering making a lower offer. Concurrently, buyers who are looking only in a specific price range that is less than the cost of your house will never have the opportunity to view your home, leaving you with less

marketability. On the flip side, those who could afford to purchase your home will inevitabley be drawn to better values that are offered elsewhere. The perils of overpricing can be negated by the benefits of proper pricing. Below are just a few of the many benefits that can be reaped with proper pricing: • Higher offers accompany a fair market value. • Real estate agents will be more likely to show your home enthusiastically if he/she believes it is a good market value. A reasonably-priced home will generate competing offers among potential buyers. • A well-priced home will attract more qualified buyers, ensuring that its marketability remains.
