Positioning a home for sale at the right price, based on current market analysis, is essential for success in today’s market, according to Bankrate.com. The largest number of showings will occur in the first two to three weeks, and buyers are most likely to make offers on properties that are priced realistically. The MLS and Internet drive the majority of showings, which is why real estate experts stress that it’s important to set a price that generates excitement and energy from day one.
Additional perks may also attract buyers, according to Bankrate.com. Consider sweetening the deal with a top-of-the-line washer and dryer or wall-mounted, flat-screen TVs. And, of course, a home that’s in perfect turn-key, move-in condition, clean and clutter-free is on top of every buyer’s wish list.
