The Realities of Getting Your Home Sold
Bob is proud to say he has worked hard over the years to achieve a sales success rate of 97%. Putting that in perspective, you may be shocked to know that in a normal market the average is just 35% sold! No, you are not misreading that; the fact is 65% of listings don’t sell, so a 97% success rate is an achievement that represents around 3X the success of the majority of agents.
The other secret to successfully getting your home sold is an agent’s “Days-On-Market”. In other words, how long will it take to get your home sold. It’s such a crucial question to ask an agent when interviewing him or her to represent you in the sale of your home, simply because the longer a property sits on the market, the less the market is willing to pay and that could mean substantial financial losses when your home eventually does sell. That means, as a seller, Bob’s sales success puts more money in your pocket from the net proceeds in the sale of your home.
Correct Pricing Actually Puts More Dollars In Your Pocket
The “buffer for negotiation” is the biggest myth in real estate and one of the major roadblocks to securing top dollar for your home. When making the decision to put your home on the market, one of the most important decisions you should also make at that time is to seriously avoid, at all costs, the temptation to overprice your home … even if it’s only by a small amount.
The fact is, 100% of home sellers believe their home is worth more than fair market value … 100%! You can ask anything you want for your home, but in EVERY CASE, your house will sell for fair market value – no more, no less! The “buffer for negotiation” is also the biggest pitfall in real estate and falling victim to the “buffer” will actually mean LESS DOLLARS IN YOUR POCKET from the net proceeds in the sale of your home.
Seek out and listen to professional advice. Also consider engaging a professional Appraiser to value your home. If you do decide to make that investment, advise your Appraiser (and make it very clear) that you are securing his or her services for the sole purpose of selling your home.
Whether you’re just thinking of selling, your listing has been on the market with another agent and unfortunately you weren’t successful in getting your home sold, or you’re selling your home “By Owner”, take a look at the videos below, each video will be the best few minutes you’ll spend to maximize the return on what is likely the biggest investment of your entire life … your home.
When Your Listing Expires Unsold
Unfortunately, in a normal market, two-thirds of listed properties go unsold. That’s a statistic worth repeating … 65% of listings don’t sell. It’s also a fact that selling your home is one of the top three causes of stress, the anxiety is enormous!
Now, having watched the video above, you’ll recognize just how important it is to select the right agent and strategically move forward to achieve your goal of getting your home sold as quickly as possible. Bob Reid specializes in working with homeowners, just like you, who’ve previously had their home listed with another agent and your home just wasn’t sold. So, put Bob to work for you and your family and get your home sold.
Selling Your Home By Owner
There’s generally only one reason why homeowners sell “By Owner”: To save the real estate commissions .. and you’re absolutely right, those commissions represent a substantial amount of money ... HOWEVER:
What if you were made aware that a good real estate professional could actually put around $4,000 more in your pocket for every $100,000 in your home’s value? In other words, if your home is worth say $250,000 … that’s an additional $10,000 in your pocket after the commissions. If you're serious about maximizing the net proceeds from the sale of your home, I would strongly urge you to take just a few minutes to watch this video. I promise, your investment in time will generate a very substantial financial return.
Contact Bob, he’ll be happy to sit down with you and your family to show you how to maximize your financial return on the biggest investment of your entire life. Put more money in your pocket … after all that’s exactly why you’re selling “By Owner” to begin with … isn’t it? So don’t take the risk, grab the phone and call or text Bob at 616.821.4375.
The Real Facts On Zillow “Zestimates” … Sellers Beware!
Don’t fall victim to the biggest pitfall in securing your highest price when selling! Inaccurate pricing is the biggest factor. Here’s how to avoid the dangers of incorrect pricing:
The true reality is that 100% of home owners believe their home is worth more than fair market value. It’s also a fact that websites such as Zillow and Trulia, at their own admission, can be up to 20% to 25% inaccurate either side of market value … that’s as much as a 50% swing! If a real estate agent offered a home valuation with a 50% swing, that agent would be considered grossly incompetent. Yet homeowners place enormous faith in those “guesstimates” with that degree of inaccuracy. The fact is Zillow has been sued several times over recent years because of illegally acquiring intellectual property and misleading property values.
