29 Essential Tips That Get Homes Sold Fast (And For Top Dollar)
Can you believe we are already on Tip #8? Give yourself room to negotiate.
Make sure you leave yourself enough room in which to bargain. If what you ask for is unacceptable to the buyer, and their first offer is unacceptable to you, then you better make sure you have someplace to go that is acceptable to you.
Start with the absolute minimum price you would accept, then pick the price you’d get if the world were perfect. This gives you your range to keep in mind when working with your Realtor to negotiate the sale.
In setting your asking price, review your priorities. Do you want to maximize your profit or sell quickly? You’ll price high for the former and closer to market value if the latter is the case. Easy peasy lemon squeezy.
