Rising real estate inventories are presenting buyers with more options and sellers with more competition.Â In the center of it all, you’ll find the guidance and expertise of real estate agents and brokers.Â If you price a home reasonably, buyers will buy.Â If buyers make a reasonable offer, sellers will sell.Â It really is that simple.
For sellers, pricing is still the biggest factor in a listing’s success or failure.Â Sellers, buyers and real estate agents all stand to lose from an overpriced property.
Likewise, buyers also need to be aware that negotiating skills are more critical now than ever.Â Contrary to widespread media reports of sellers panicking under the weight of foreclosure, most sellers are in fact in good enough shape to wait for a fair offer.
Buyers and sellers are still coming together in record numbers that would have been unthinkable just ten years ago.Â What everyone needs now is a big dose of perspective, since most home sales are still taking place for the most traditional of reasons: job relocation, growing families, retirement, or even simply downsizing.
Whether buying or selling, your best insurance for a satisfactory sale or purchase is with the knowledge and skills of a professional representative.Â If you’re unsure about our local market, schedule a cost-free, obligation-free consultation with an agent you know and trust.Â Then move with confidence!
