I am starting the thought process of selling my home and moving to a simpler lifestyle. 5 country acres with gardens is getting to be a bit much and a more simpler lifestyle is starting to seem like a good idea. There is a lot to go through and think about as, like many, I have collected over the years. It all can not go with me so the planning starts now. Upon having the converstaion with hubby he said 'well when we get ready to put our home on the market I do not want to give it away. If we put it on the market and get an offer right away that means we priced it too low right? Shouldn't we price a bit higher?? Oh my....this is a misconception that many people have.
Receiving an offer right away means we priced properly for the market we are in. It means we priced to sell and move on with our lives. It means we did a fabulous job of showcasing our home in the best possible light for the most money that the market would bear.
Selling one's home quickly does not mean that you gave your home away and left money on the table. It is a misconception that many homeowners have when in reality when one prices right one sells right.
Pricing ones home to reflect current market conditions is the very best way to receive the very best price.
But that means we priced too low right????
Not at all.
