The statistics show that the first buyer to make an offer will pay the highest price. Your home will attract the most excitement from potential buyers and agents when it’s new on the market. Your home will sell more quickly and for the most money when it is listed at the most salable price from the beginning.
Should your home not sell in the first three to four weeks an adjustment is necessary. Adjustments should be made in marketing, condition, access and ultimately price.
The time frames in which homes sell the fastest peak in the first weeks, and the weeks immediately after a price adjustment.
To achieve the highest price in the first thirty days, carefully review your Imperial Agent’s Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) of your home to determine the best initial asking price.
Their success comes from having extensive knowledge of the local market place.
