Planning on listing your Incline Village home for sale in 2019? Pricing your property according to the current market values from the very beginning is so important. According to the experts, home prices increased 4.7% in 2018 in the United States. While real estate is local and we can’t always predict what the prices will be for each individual area, CoreLogic forecasts that every state will see at least a 2% price appreciation while most of the country will see at least 4%. For the median priced home, that is $14,000 gained in equity. What this means for the Incline Village real estate market remains to be seen. This is why it is so important to work with an Incline Village realtor. We have the current, and local, market conditions and can provide these to our clients so they can be armed with information as they prepare to buy or sell.
Which brings us to the main reason it is important to list your Incline Village home for sale correctly from the list date. When you price too high in the hopes that someone will come in with an offer for the price you actually want, you waste valuable market time. The first two weeks that Incline Village real estate is listed is the prime time. This is when most eyes are on your Incline Village home for sale. When it is priced too high, not as many potential buyers will see your home because it is outside of their search criteria. Additionally, when homes for sale in Incline Village sit too long, buyers assume there is something wrong with the home and can bypass it altogether.
Avoid tactics like pricing high with the hopes of countering until you get the number you really want. Or pricing high and lowering later on. These take away from valuable market time. Your Incline Village Realtor can shed more light on the importance of home pricing and the current comparable market values.
