Pricing Your Home

To Sell It Fast & For More Money

You may have heard that there’s not much housing inventory in Houston right now, which means that prices for homes have gone up across the board. This is great news for you as a home seller! The timing is perfect for you to get the most return on your investment into your home.

But even in today’s market, there are still homes that sit, waiting for an offer, for months and months. This time spent on MLS means that you’re still making your mortgage payments and you’re still not getting equity out from your home.

Perhaps even worse is what buyers and buyer agents think about homes that have been on the market too long. Remember how important first impressions are? The first impression a buyer gets about a home that has been listed for a
long time in this hot market is this:

“Something must be wrong with that home."

That thought will scare away many buyers, and it’ll prompt the ones who remain  interested to try to lowball you.

But why are those homes still on the market in the first place? It’s because they are often priced “out of the market.” Take a look at the graph on the next page to see what we mean.
