3. Get a Comparative Market Analysis to learn the real value of your property:

A comparative market analysis will help you evaluate how your home will fare against the other homes on the market and it will determine the best and highest price you can list your home for.

If your house is priced correctly you should, on average, get 1 offer from every 7 showings. In a typical market you should receive about 1-2 showings per week. If you are not getting offers on your property, you should follow my tips below:
- If your house isn’t getting 1-2 showings per week or better, it’s very likely that your price is too high and you will need to reduce it.
- If your house is getting showings, but you are not getting any offers, you are likely losing those offers to better quality properties so you will need to reduce your price to compete, or improve the property.
Determining where a buyer found the home they purchased has always been a hot topic. The reality may surprise you. According to the National Association of Realtors, the statistics are as follows:
- Internet 44% (up from 8% in 2001)
- Real estate agent 33% (down from 48% in 2001))
- For Sale or open House sign 9% (down from 15% in 2001)
- Friend or relative 6% (down from 8% in 2001)
- Direct relationship with the seller 2% (down from 4% in 2001)
- Print newspaper 1% (down from 7% in 2001) Magazine less than 1% (down from 2% in 2001)
The data indicates a growing trend that more and more buyers are going FIRST to their computer to identify potential homes that they like. In our ultra-high-net-worth market, the client typically contacts their Realtor to communicate the type of home, location, and amenities they are looking for. In turn, the knowledgeable Realtor, familiar with the local inventory, is able to provide listings and, if appropriate, arrange a private showing. From a seller’s point of view, they almost always ask the Realtor “how are you going to market and promote my house?” The sellers invariably want magazine ads and printed flyers; however, the data above indicates that money spent on print marketing is a complete waste, given that the vast majority of buyers find their homes on the internet and through a Realtor. All real estate agents use both the Multiple Listing Service and our personal networks to find homes that are already listed, in addition to locating new listings not yet in the MLS. The bottom line is that how buyers find homes has changed dramatically. That being said, having a highly qualified and connected broker continues to be an invaluable asset when finding and purchasing a home, and when selling one.
