Far too often, we see sellers making the mistake of overpricing a home. Understanding the consequences of overpricing is crucial for selling your home in a timely manner.A home attracts the most attention from the real estate community during its first few weeks of listing. Setting an unrealistic price from the beginning can cause a home to miss out on this optimal time frame. Once this period has passed, sellers must often set a lower price, and depending on market conditions, this cycle may repeat itself several times before a sale is finalized. Often, the result is an end price that is well below the initial figure, or worse, below the market value of the home.You want to start off on the right foot by setting a price based upon thorough research performed by a real estate professional. An experienced agent can help you determine the value of your home because they know the market and marketing process. Your chances of a smooth and timely sale are best when accompanied by a real estate professional.Keep your eyes peeled for next week’s post when we’ll explain how to find the value of you home.

"For Gordon Crawford:
Gordon made my experience as a first-time home buyer as stress free as it can be. He came highly recommended, and didn't disappoint. I had dealt with a couple of agents before I met Gordon, and both were a nightmare. Moving from Hoboken, Gordon introduced me and my fiancé to the Morris County area. He spent an exceptional amount of time pointing out the local hot spots, pros/cons of neighborhoods, and overall made me feel comfortable narrowing the search. His approach to finding the right home was refreshing, if not tedious, taking us to various listings to see a single detail we may like so he could narrow the search. He often would say, "I know this isn't the right place for you, but what do you think about the yard/kitchen/bedrooms/etc?". When the listing for the home we eventually bought came up, he immediately knew we'd like it.
Gordon walked us through the inspection, negotiation, and closing process. In the rare case when he wasn't able to answer the phone, Gordon's responsiveness was excellent as well. I love the home I'm in, but if I ever need a change, I hope to have Gordon as my agent in the future."
