Following are three questions that you, as a seller, should ask yourself. By answering these questions, you will gain a better understanding if you are serious about selling. “Serious sellers” tend to net the most amount of money at closing, have the least amount of hassles, and get their desired results in the shortest period of time.
Why are you moving?
The more compelling your reasons, the more realistic you are apt to be about the realities of your marketplace.
What is your timetable for making the move?
Most sellers do not get realistic about the realities of the marketplace until time is of the essence.
Are you committed to move?
If you are not committed to moving within your stated time frame, you are more likely to neglect doing the “little things” that would cause a top dollar, no hassle, timely sale.
Buyers are objective about price and value. They are shopping for the “best deal”. Serious sellers know this and respond by objectively pricing and marketing their homes correctly.
