If your home been on the market for a while and it’s not selling, there is always a reason. You must stop and ask your self why?  Have you received any offers including bad offers? Is your home priced right? Are other homes selling in your neighborhood and selling while your home is sitting? Does your home show well on the exterior with great curb appeal and the interior as well? Are your home’s colors neutral? What about the carpets, and interior and exterior paint? Perplexed?  You are not alone. As a home owner, there are often many reasons that make up the sale of a home, price, appearance and location is all critical factors in selling a home in Atlanta.

Remember the last time you visited a model home in a new home subdivision in Atlanta? What did you think when you toured it? You were impressed weren’t you? They did a nice job, and you wanted to buy it!  Do you get the same feeling when you look at a resale home or your own home?  What’s the difference?  The new homes were all dressed up.  They were clean, light, bright and smelled good. When you visited those homes, what came over you? Something pushed your buy button! You may have even gone back to see the model again for some decorating tips. Why was this?  The home was just an average home, but it showed well. Well it’s not a secret how it is done. It’s all about marketing, and it left a planned desired effect on you. Why?  Because the new home was “staged” properly to appeal to all the senses. 

Staging is It is like detailing a car, but only better! Unlike buying a auto or appliance, there are emotions attached to buying or selling a home. We have to define what the hot buttons or the triggers that make a home jump out you and say “Buy me!”  It is sort of like the detailed car we just mentioned.  When is shines, glistens and looks like new you want to drive it around the neighborhood to show it off!  Well when selling a home, it is no different.

With our help you can do the same thing when you prepare your own home for sale. Now we are not talking about remodeling, tearing out all the carpet, painting, fixing up or making your home look vanilla. Instead, we focus on a few steps to make your home show like a model without spending a lot of your hard earned money. It is just common sense marketing. The secret is staging, and paying attention to detail. That can help potential buyers imagine themselves and their families at home in your “home for sale”

Pricing A Home to Sell

Atlanta Pricing Your Home To Sell Your | Price Your Home Right!

Atlanta Pricing your home to sell! Atlanta Home Prices. Selling a home Atlanta and want to know the right listing price? Real estate marketing and pricing strategies to sell homes in: Atlanta, Alpharetta, Acworth, Crabapple, Cumming, Duluth, Dunwoody, Johns Creek, Milton, Peachtree Corners, Roswell, Woodstock,   Fulton, Cherokee, DeKalb, Gwinnett, Cobb, and Forsyth counties.

Pricing A Home to Sell in AtlantaWhy use Jim and Ellen Crawford to sell your home? “It’s the Experience!”  I takes more than a sign in the ground to sell a home in the Atlanta or Atlanta area these days! It takes a strategy! Neighborhoods are facing foreclosures, short sales, declining home values, sold prices are dropping, and the time needed to sell a home is increasing! There are now loads of homes just sitting on the market and they are not selling! It doesn’t make sense to list a home if the agent feels they cannot sell it! Pricing is a major component of home sales! That is where Jim and Ellen have an edge! We’ve worked the softer markets in the past, and have some strategies we use to get our homes sold.

PRICING YOUR ATLANTA HOME TO SELL!

Selling your home in Atlanta Georgia? Want to know what homes are selling for in your neighborhood? What they’ve actually sold for? How much your own home is worth compared to theirs? Then pricing your home correctly from the beginning represents one of the most important factors in the selling your home. Our experience has shown us that if you price your home TOO HIGH, it may remain on the market for a long period of time – and could ultimately sell for less money than if it were priced properly from the start.

If you price your home TOO LOW, you may sell it quickly, but for less money than it is worth. Clearly, determining the correct price in which to sell your home is very important in maximizing its value to you. For results that count, contact Jim and Ellen Now!

Where Should You Price Your Atlanta Home?

There are three main pricing strategies – pricing your home: above, at, or below its market value.

  1. Priced above market value: Sellers like to price their home high, thinking that someone just might pay it. That’s unlikely – buyers shopping for a home know exactly what the market is like, and won’t be fooled into paying more than it’s worth.
  2. Priced at market value: Always a good strategy – that’s what your home is worth!
  3. Below market value!  Anyone could give your home away if it is not priced correctly!

Worried about setting the wrong price when selling a home in the Atlanta area? Ask to see the “estimates of value” collected from agents visiting your home during the broker’s open house. These estimates come from agents who work with buyers every day, and who know what buyers are willing to pay for homes. When twenty or thirty values are plotted on graph paper (or simply averaged), your home’s true value to buyers will become quite clear. If your home isn’t within 5% of the average value, it’s overpriced, and the asking price should be dropped!  Don’t let your home become an old, tired listing. It will eventually sell for less than you would have received if you’d priced it properly!

Ellen & I Don’t play pricing games when listing a home. We list our homes at the right price. Everyone benefits! This ensures that our listings sell in the shortest time for the highest price! We feel this is the best approach! Unlike other agents that will “BUY YOUR LISTING!” (Listing your home at a higher price even if it unrealistic, because the agent knows that you need to sell.) They know that your personal needs will dictate the necessity to reduce later. Within a few weeks of listing your home at the higher price, the agent will start approaching you to reduce the price. How mean! We feel that this is emotional blackmail!

Our Goals

  • Get you the most money possible;
  • Sell your home as quickly as you can;
  • Make selling your home a pleasant and profitable experience.

If you are still interested in marketing your home, we feel we can offer you a fresh approach. We’ll provide you with a personalized and professional marketing plan in order to sell your home for the highest possible price in the least amount of time. Ellen and I are extremely successful in selling homes! We provide a FREE Competitive Market Analysis (CMA) that ensures success. It is good to have a CMA before listing your home for sale. As experienced local agents we can provide you with details of the current market valuation.

We Also Serve the Following Areas: Atlanta, Crabapple, Windward, Cumming, Milton, Roswell, Johns Creek, Woodstock, Acworth, Dunwoody, Peachtree Corners, North Fulton, Cherokee, DeKalb, and Forsyth counties.

A new coat of paint can make the difference of whether your home will sell or just sit on the market.  Paint has many purposes.  First a new coat of paint is pleasing to the eyes. If you paint the homes exterior and trim, you now have curb appeal!  It revitalizes the look of a tired and worn property and returns it to its former glory.  However we cannot stop on the outside and disappoint buyers when they enter the home.  A fresh coat of paint is pleasing to the senses.  Paint and also depersonalize a home, and makes it more appealing and inviting to all.  A strong personal color may turn some buyers away, and a neutral color may make your home more appealing to a wider audience.  Please remember most buyers are really looking for a home in turn key condition, and like your self they are too busy to stop and paint your home after they move in.  They want a home not a project!  Another item is that paint and caulking is part of regular home maintenance.  It actually protects your home from moisture intrusion, rot, and dry rot, mold and mildew and insect infiltration.

Before you place your home on the market the smartest investment you could make is in the appearance of your home.  Make it stand out in a clean fresh light that separates your home from your neighbors!  Yes it’s an added expense, but in this market is will make a major difference.
