How Quickly Will Your Property Sell — and at What Price?

Many factors affect both the amount of time it will take your property to sell and the price you will receive for it. Some of these we can control, others we cannot.

Factors We Can Control

Listing price is the single most important factor in the sale of your property. The best way to ensure the timely sale of your property is to price it competitively.

The better the condition of your property, the higher price it should bting and the faster it should sell.

By exposing your property to the broadest possible audience through a coordinated marketing plan, you'll have a better chance of atttacting a qualified buyer.

Your flexibility in negotiating the terms of your agreement (closing date, appliances, etc.) can also enhance your ability to sell your property.

Factors We Cannot Control

If there are a large number of comparable properries for sale, there is more competition for buyers. In a supply and demand market like real estate, a large inventory of similar properties makes our job more challenging.

The location is another key factor in rhe sale of your property.

The economy will also affect the sale of yout property, particularly through interest rates and consumer confidence.
