Selling Your Leisure World Home? Make Sure the Price is Right!

 Selling Your Leisure World Home? Make Sure the Price is Right!



If you’ve ever watched “The Price is Right,” you know that the only way to win is to be the one to correctly guess the price of the item you want without going over! That means your guess must be just slightly under the retail price.


In today’s shifting real estate market, where more inventory is coming to market and home values are projected to appreciate at lower rates, homeowners will not be able to price their homes as aggressively as they were able to just last year.


They will have to employ the same strategy: be the closest without going over!


Pricing your home at or slightly below market value actually increases the number of buyers who will see your home in their search!


Over the last six months, more inventory has come to market while the months’ supply of inventory available has dropped. This means that the demand for homes to buy is still very strong throughout the country!


Homeowners in Leisure World who make the mistake of overpricing their homes will eventually have to drop the price. This leaves buyers wondering if the price drop was caused by something wrong with the homes when in reality nothing was wrong, the price was just too high!


If you are thinking about listing your home for sale in Leisure World of Maryland this year, let’s get together to properly price your home from the start!

The price of a home is usually the main issue when it sits on the market too long.  CMA's are a must and we try to do them with all of our listings to make sure the "price is right".  Great blog...thanks for sharing!

Thanks Norma Elkins. It's in the best interest for sellers to work with a knowledgeable agent for their market to help them price their home correctly.

Good morning, Barbara Michaluk the price MUST be right because the market is beginning to change... there are more listings on the market and the buyers are beginning to search and wait a bit longer to pull the trigger....
