Good Monday morning to you!
Hopefully some Spring sunshine is in our very near future - I hear more snow is one the way tomorrow...what a Winter its been!
As we approach this Spring and Summer, our best sales seasons, you may be thinking of moving or know someone that is too.
We have created www.TexomaHomeValue.com for those of you that are looking to sell and wondering what the market around you has done in the last few months. Simply enter your home's information and your contact information, and we'll have a market analysis to you within 24 hours.
January 2010 for us was up over 2009 and we already have 16 new pending for February. Its looking like this will be another GREAT year for the Bishop/Gustafson Team.
This week's Myth Buster:
Myth: "If I price my house high in the beginning, that will give me more negotiating room and the buyer will feel like they're getting a deal."
Fact: This simply is not true - you cannot fool buyers in this market.
The only home that sold over $300,000 in Wichita Falls for the month of January was originally on the market at $875,000 - and it sold for $425,000 908 days later. Pricing high caused this home to be on the market almost 3 years! Had they priced aggressively in the beginning, they probably would have netted more money, and saved almost 3 years in taxes, utility bills, and lawn care.
Please call me this week if I can serve you or anyone you may know.
