Seller Negotiation Tips
Getting the Highest Possible Price
The key to getting the highest possible price for your home is to hire a good real estate broker like Cal Pacific Real Estate. One of our experienced real estate agents will set the price, take pictures, write advertising, show the home and negotiate the offers.
Our real estate agents have in depth knowledge about comparables in your neighborhood and the overall state of the housing market that will enable us to determine a fair value for your home. We have more understanding of the buyer’s frame of mind. This can be crucial in negotiating the best price for your home.
By using accurate initial market pricing, you will attract more agents and buyers to your home, increasing the likelihood of a bidding war, or selling quickly. As a rule of thumb, the quicker you sell, the higher the price you will get. If you want to price it over the fair market value, you should not price it more than 5 to 10 percent higher.
If your home has been on the market for too long, you will lose your negotiating power. Usually, the longer the home is on the market, the greater the likelihood that you will have to make price concessions. This is why overpricing your home is generally a bad idea, as it will tend to cost you more as your home remains unsold and you are forced to lower the price dramatically.
Cal Pacific Real Estate will actively seek out buyers rather than waiting for buyers to come to them. You want a proactive agent who will market your home daily to other agents and potential buyers. An agent will display your listing with attractive photos on our website and present your home in the best possible light.
Our experienced agents demonstrate strong negotiating skills time and time again. The negotiation process is crucial and can increase your sale price by thousands of dollars. This is where we will make a huge difference in the selling price.
