If you are living in the Lower Mainland you are no doubt aware of the volatile Real Estate market in which you live in.
We are currently seeing activity like never before. Homes are sellilng at lightning speed with multiple offers, for over asking price.
When I am asked to provide a comparataive market analysis, I point out that current market value at the moment is just that - at the moment. What a home will sell for today will likely need to be adjusted within a week or in some cases just days.
Now more than ever, home owners are witnessing buyers, developers and realtors knockinng on their door making offers, offers that appear to be very generous.
In some cases, home owners take advantage of these offers and sell without having to cope with the whole listing process... prepping their home for sale, showings, etc. And while they have done remarkably well, they could have done better.
Just as concerning is the number of sellers who list their property and accept an offer immediately - within 0-1 days. MLS and various other Real Estate sites grant sellers massive exposure, but unless you allow your home to be fully exposed and thoroughly marketed, unless you provide ample time for your home to be found on-line, unless you allow for sufficient time to enable buyers to view your home, you are leaving money on the table.
To be certain you are selling for top dollar in today's market you need to make certain to invite every potential buyer to view your home. You must allow buyers time to do their due diligence, and arrange for a convenient time and place for presentation of all offers in a relaxed manner, preferably no sooner than 7 days after posting your listing.
By taking these simple steps you are doing everything possible to generate the absolute best price possible for your home at that given time. Leave nothing on the table. Sellers- be patient, sell smart!
