1.) COMPETITION:

Every Buyer makes his decision about which home to buy and how much it is worth by his other choices at the time he buys.  They supply of other choices the buyers will compare with your home is constantly changing each week and month. The current competition always effects the Buyer's opinion of your property and what he thinks it is worth. So, the question is: What will be the Buyer's other choices at the time they are shown your property?

 

2.) PRICE:

If the property has not sold after a reasonable length of time, but other similar properties have sold, then the price may need to be reduced.  If this is true and the price is not reduced, a sale may be delayed or prevented.

 

3.) PROPERTY:

If the property should show poorly or have major defects which cannot be, or are not corrected, a sale may not occir until the defects are corrected or the price is adjusted to compensate for them.

 

4.) FINANCING:

The current cost of mortgage financing plays an important role in affordability to most prospective buyers.  If thes costs are to high, then the financing may cause a delay or prevent the sale.

 

5.) TIMING:

Timing is the condition of the real estate market at the time of the sale.  Supply and deand are the factors influencing wheather it is a Seller's or Buyer's market.  Neither the seller nor the listing agent can change the market condition at the time the property is for sale.  It must be accepted for what it is.

 

6.) MARKETING:
Marketing techniques are being constantly tested and updated for the best results.  But, even expert marketing has limitations because marketing cannot overcome any of the first five factors if they are out of balance and remain uncorrected. We will supply you with a constant flow of updated information which will help you determine the marketability of your property.
