FRED…..WHEN SHOULD THE LISTING PRICE ON MY HOME BE LOWERED?
Fred Carver-Top Realtor Victoria, BC, Accredited Victoria BC Real Estate Consultant (Re/Max Camosun Victoria BC Real Estate)

FRED…..WHEN SHOULD THE LISTING PRICE ON MY HOME BE LOWERED?

 

All too often we see listings on the market for a long time yet other listings sell quickly.

 

I’m often asked when I’m listing a house..”Let’s ask more” than my recommended asking price..”We can always look at offers”.

 

Fred...When Should The Listing Price On My Home Be LoweredI explain to clients....The most activity we’ll see is in the beginning is when a house is first listed for sale. At any one time there maybe be only 20 Buyers looking for a home in their neighbourhood and price range. The Buyers come and look in the first week or so.. After that we are only relying on only new buyers coming into the market and showing activity slows....Bottom Line Home buyers are comparative shoppers and they know house values…

 

All too often Sellers and their Realtor price their home too high over the market selling range, usually based on how much a seller wants and or a Realtors mistake or misleading a seller to take a listings.

 

So if your home is not selling....Lower your listing price to meet the area market demand. Simply look at recent home sales and current pending home sales around you to see what home buyers are willing to pay for homes in your neighbourhood..

 

The first sign of a listing not priced right for their marketis the lack of or no showings and certainly No Offers in the first few weeks. Generally when there are no showings a house can be as much as 10% or more too high and if there are showings  and no offers an adjustment of 3-5% will usually generate an offer...Talk to your Realtor, find out what price home are selling for near you.

 

Never price your home based on how much money you want or need, today's home buyers are well versed on property values and nobody wants to pay more than they have too for their home.

 

Fred...When Should The Listing Price on My Home be lowered?Adjust your asking list price to your market sooner than later, or home Buyers will think there is something wrong with your house in addition to be overpriced. All too often homes end up selling for much less than if they were listed in the market price zone in the beginning.

 

It’s interesting to note: That after 40 years selling real estate in Victoria BC I still see homes over priced and people and their Realtors saying (when their home isn’t selling) “Well they can make an offer or we(they) don’t need to sell”.

The Gordon Head is a beautiful neighbourhood of single family homes that is conveniently located just 2 miles outside of Downtown Victoria by bike, car or bus.

HOW TO AVOID PAYING TOO MUCH FOR A HOME IN VICTORIA BC
Fred Carver-Top Realtor Victoria, BC, Accredited Victoria BC Real Estate Consultant (Re/Max Camosun Victoria BC Real Estate)

HOW TO AVOID PAYING TOO MUCH FOR A HOME IN VICTORIA BC

 

IMGP4857 (Medium).JPG

Fairmont Empress Hotel Victoria, BC

 

Your home is probably your largest single financial investment.The average price of homes in the Victoria BC area is $643,000(April 2014) .If you had a $643,000 legal problem would you try to handle it yourself?

 

Homes For Sale In Victoria currently range anywhere from $39,000 for a mobile home to 3. Million on 30 acres. Something for everybody.

 

Victoria BC Real estate sales prices are not a matter of public record until after a purchase completes and is registered in the land titles office. So Internet-based companies like Zoocasa do not have the real uptodate data.

BC Assessment values (are for Municipal taxation purposes) they do not usually reflect the actual market value of a home...they can often in todays Victoria BC real estate market be typically lower than actual value.

 

The only people in Victoria BC who have accurate sales records are members of the Multiple Listing Service (MLS). The Victoria MLS Service switched to the MLS® Home Price Index (MLS® HPI), which is considered more accurate based on its reporting methods. Ensuring greater accuracy in tracking trends and reducing confusion around trend analysis.

So if you want an accurate sales price analysis on a home (so that you don't pay way too much for it) call me and put my my knowledge and experience to work for you.

 

CAUTION: Not all real estate agents are equally good at Victoria BC real estate sales price analysis. Work with an experienced agent with local expertise who knows how to put together a valid Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) & Home Price Index(HPI) Price Trend before you make an offer on a home.

 

I am serious about protecting you and your interests. I know the Victoria BC Real Estate market. I'm the local neighborhood expert and specialise in selling Victoria homes. I know the neighbourhoods as I was born and raised in Victoria BC and I’ve been helping people Buy and Sell Victoria BC Real Estate since 1971! Don't overpay for your next home. I'll help you get a house in the right Victoria BC neighborhood at the right price.
