Marketing of properties begins before the sign goes up & before the buyer sees the first house, and it continues through and after closing!
Experience has proven the following:
Residential Real Estate purchases and sales are 85% emotional and 15% factual. Buyers have to 'fall in love' with the house before they care about the furnace or updates.
Sellers need to realize that once the property is 'on the market', they should detach themselves from the house. Emotionally, treat the property as if it is no longer theirs.
The Selling Price is determined by what the Buyer is willing AND able to pay--not what the seller has 'put into' the property. More and more, financing and appraisals affect Selling Prices.
Investors' decisions usually are 85% factual and 15% emotional. It is all in the numbers for an Investor.
Trust your instincts in working with a Realtor and in buying or selling properties. If it does not 'feel right', do not do it!
