Real Estate Tips: Why a Home Doesn’t Sell

Pinpoint the reason why your home may not be selling

Pinpoint the reason why your home may not be selling

Twenty-one years ago I started selling homes and serving clients and since then I have helped more than 2,400 families buy and sell real estate right here in Kitchener-Waterloo. However, when I started in this profession, although I knew how to run a business I didn’t know how to run a Real Estate business. Yes I passed all levels of the Real Estate exams with the top marks in my class, yet applying knowledge is different than simply possessing knowledge. Rather than learn by trial and error, I sought out the best Real Estate Coach I could find and that turned out to be Mike Ferry from California. Here is what Mike Ferry taught me about why a home isn’t selling…….

Real Estate Tips: How to Sell Your Kitchener-Waterloo Home

In this article I’m going to address the pricing issue when listing your home to sell for the most amount of money possible. This is important information for you if you are selling your home in Kitchener-Waterloo. If you are looking to buy your dream home and currently own a house, you can benefit from my 21 years of real estate expertise in addressing the pricing issue.

Pricing your home properly can make a huge difference in how long it takes to sell your home and, how much money you get for it. Pricing your home right is probably one of the most controversial things in real estate.

PRICING YOUR HOME PROPERLY

Here’s what we need to know – what is the most amount of money we can price your home for without pricing it too high? If we price it a little too high we may get lots of home buyers looking at your home but we won’t get any offers. If we price it substantially too high we won’t even get anybody looking at your house and again, no offers. Learning how to price a home becomes very predictible and we can look at the 2 week point after launching and decipher from the activity, whether we’ve priced it right or not.

CALCULATING AN ACCURATE PRICE

Examine and analyzse the sales activity on your street in the past year for homes very similar to yours (eg. if you have a bungalow with a 2 car garage we only compare other bungalows with 2 car garages). We also analyze the houses that were for sale in your neighbourhood in the past year that *didn’t sell.*

After making minute adjustments, the other trick is this: once we determine the true value of your home, we want to put the price right up tight against it. The real estate professionals and their buyers in our community will recognize when we have a home priced accurately and we will attract a lot of attention – this is how we create a feeding frenzy. We want to get as many offers as possible. When a home is priced right, potential home buyers will understand and respect that we have priced it properly and they won’t expect that we would consider low-ball offers.

In the end, who makes the final decision on the price that is accepted for your home? You do. You are in control. The right agent will coach you very well on how to price your home to sell for the most money possible.

Real Estate Tips: Team or Agent – Which is Best for You?

What's the difference between a real estate TEAM and an agent working alone?

What’s the difference between a real estate TEAM and an agent working alone?

A single real estate agent – they have everything in their own hands and it can become a little like a “one-man band” coming down the street with one individual playing the big bass drum, blowing the horn and trying to play the guitar. If they had about 6 hands it might work okay but today real estate is complicated. The real estate profession is not what it was years ago and a Realtor needs expertise in different areas. Since we can’t know absolutely everything nor do everything, we need to hire the right people with specialized areas of knowledge. Obviously, I believe the model of a Real Estate Team is the best working model we have because I’ve had one myself for many years and it works like a charm.

To hear my complete explanation about the pros and cons of using either a real estate team or a real estate agent in Waterloo Region, watch my video below:
