Dear Seller Please Don't Get Upset

Dear Seller please don't get upset with me because I am being honest with you . Prices in you neighborhood have dropped by $20,000-$30,000 in the last several years. The price you Dear seller don't be upset thought you could get for your home is yesterdays price . It would be very unfair and unprofessional of me to have you think anything other than the truth.

Dear Seller please don't get upset with me because I am being honest with you .I will show you in black and white what the last several sales have been . The home exactly like yours has been up for $25,000 less than you think your home is worth . It has been on the market for almost six months . It shows clean and nice. I know because I have shown it to buyers.

There have been several foreclosures in your neighborhood and there are several empty vacant homes . There are also several estate sales .There have been a few short sales causing the values to drop. I would be misleading you to have you think your home is worth more than it is. Who ever we sell to most likely will need to obtain mortgage financing . The mortgage company will send out an appraiser .The appraiser will be looking at the same information I am giving you If the home doesn't appraise the buyers will not get the financing . As for a cash sale would you want to pay $20,000-$30,000 more then the last sale? I am sure you would not .

I know your home is nicer, has the best location ,and been properly maintained. I understand your upset but I don't set the prices the current market conditions do .
Homes are only worth what buyers are willing to pay for them .
Dear seller please don't get upset  I can not list your home for sale if it is not priced at Market Value it would be unfair to you and unprofessional of me .

Great post Hannah.  This is something I deal with here all the time.  Fortunately most sellers here understand how far the market has dropped.  I just listed a home for $165,000 that the sellers paid $400,000 a few years ago.  They were not surprised at all by the list price.

Boy, it is tough.  And, I have sat at many a table with a crying homeowner.  Literally.  But, it is more important to be honest upfront for the seller's bottom line.  Overpricing a property leads usually to a lower net for the seller.  Good work.
