It’s so important that you price your Elk Grove home for sale correctly.
Of course you don’t want to leave money on the table, and yet you also don’t want to miss an opportunity to find a buyer quickly. Selling your Elk Grove, CA home can be tricky right now. As an Elk Grove Real Estate Agent, my partner and I are at ground zero when it comes to the real estate market in our area. We will usually see a shift in the real estate market before it ever makes it to our local news channel. They are using area real estate statics that are at least a month old. Getting month old market trends might not seem like a big deal to you. If you are serious about selling your Elk Grove home, you will want more recent data to work with. The smallest shift in the market could mean you could get less for your home or it will take much longer to sell. Depending on your circumstances, you may be not be in a position to wait out your price. What we find is many of our clients don’t want to wait around, and are ready to get moved on!
If you are serious about selling your Elk Grove area home, here are thre things to think about:
1. You want to work with an agent who will monitor your Elk Grove neighborhood sales. What is coming on the market, what has sold, and how quickly has the current home inventory gone pending.
2) Look for the sweet spot. A good Elk Grove Real Estate Agent can educate you when the right time to sell is. I realize we don’t have a crystal ball and a good real estate agent can advise you of your best options. If there are three model matches (same floor plan) on your same street for sale and your house can’t compete because of price and/or condition, then it may make sense to let that home inventory sell before you list your home for sale.
3) Market trends are great and ground zero intel is better! Make sure the Elk Grove Real Estate Agent sells homes full time to get this kind of information. If they do, they should have a good pulse of what the market is doing. The Elk Grove Real Estate Market is acting weird right now. I know that may not seem like a professional answer to you and yet it’s the real answer. I can show you market stats from last month and show you how our Elk Grove home inventory is the highest point in several years. That would explain why homes are taking longer to sell. Here is where the weird part comes in. There are homes that have been put on the market in Elk Grove that are priced well in great condition that are not selling. There is no real reason for this. The condition and price are where it needs to be based on what has sold, and yet the home sits with no real offers.
Price and condition are the top two things you can control to get your Elk Grove, CA home sold. The next on this list is an ultra aggressive marketing plan! Hire a great agent who leaves no stone unturned for you. The days of putting a sign in the ground and having an open house the first weekend on the market is not going to get it sold. You need someone who will push your house out to the public, to other real estate agents, and have a list of pre-approved buyers waiting for a home just like yours. Marketing your home should not stop after the first week the home in on the market. It should be a constant push to get your home sold until you have an accepted offer.
If your Elk Grove home is currently on the market and is not selling, it’s time to sit across the table with your real estate agent and find out what their plan is to get it sold. If they don’t have a plan, who is steering the boat? It’s their job to have a plan A, B, C and if they need to have one all the way to Z to get it sold… then what is it?
