In our Raleigh, NC real estate market, we see multiple offers every day. In fact, houses are selling within hours of hitting the market. I just sold one in 6 hours. Another one had 27 showings and 9 offers in under 36 hours and sold for $10,000 over asking price. So, why are over 59% of homes listed in the Raleigh, NC area been on the market for more than 60 days?
It is imperative to have a real estate professional help you price your home. There are many factors that go into pricing strategies. Listen to their advice. I’ve heard things like, “My neighbors will be so upset if I sell for less than $___.” or “I’ll just let me house sit on the market until the right buyer is willing to pay my price.”
That way of thinking is simply not going to get your home sold for top dollar!
The fact is, in our Raleigh, NC Multiple Listing Service today only 25% of the homes that have sold in the last 30 days been on the market for more than 60 days. And here’s the most important part…they sold for less money! Yes, they sold for 94% of asking price while homes sold in less than 60 days brought in 97% of their asking price.
Even more interesting, of those homes sold in the last 30 days over 52% sold in less than 30 days at an average of 99% of list price!
