Commit to Your Most Important 2012 New Year’s Resolution:  Getting Your Charlotte Real Estate SOLD!

With a New Year upon us, it’s time for you to get rid of last year’s baggage and concentrate on making 2012 the best year it can be.  Yes, that even goes for Charlotte home sellers if you had a home for sale in 2011 and it’s still on the market.

You only need to have one New Year’s resolution for 2012:  Do whatever it takes to sell that house!

The current economy has made it quite challenging to procure acceptable Offers from prospective buyers. While this is extremely discouraging, the lack of Offers might mean it’s time to bite the bullet and lower the price on your Charlotte real estate. Then you might be able to sell quickly and start a new lease on life.

Below are reasons you should lower your price now to sell fast and start anew in 2012:

  • Charlotte home for sale SOLD by Debe MaxwellYour Charlotte real estate is likely overpriced.  If you haven’t received any Offers, ask your real estate agent to pull information on comparable properties in your neighborhood and the surrounding areas that have sold recently.  This will give you a solid idea of where your home should be priced.
  • Your Charlotte real estate agent recommends a price reduction.  Your Charlotte real estate agent knows your market and can tell if your property has been for sale longer than expected.  What are the average days on the market for your area?  If a property sits on the market too long, potential buyers might suspect that something is wrong and the property becomes a ‘stale listing.’  If your house has more days on market than you and your agent expected it to have, then it’s probably time to reduce the price. If you feel that your home is priced properly and your agent agrees, perhaps it’s time to check get a ‘second opinion.’
  • From all perspectives, it costs time and money to keep a house on the market.  Maintaining a house and waiting for the right Offer is a full-time job, not only for YOU but, for your agent.  For you, there is constant cleaning, upkeep and improvements that can cost you time and money — which you could be investing into your new house.  The cost to carry a property for months is generally higher than taking a single price reduction NOW!

I know you think it’s easy for me to say but, consider taking the emotion out of the equation and reducing your price so you can accomplish your New Year’s resolution early in 2012. Reducing your price might draw attention to your property, increase activity and bring more people through the doors.

If your home isn’t currently listed with an agent, and you’re ready to get it sold, please call me at (704)491-3310 or email me at Broker@TheCharlotteScoop.com.    Allow me to implement my proven marketing plan to get your home SOLD as quickly as possible.
