Know Why You are Selling

If you know exactly why you are selling then it is easier for you to follow the right plan of action for getting what you want.

If you are a seller who needs to close a sale as quickly as possible, then you should know that getting the highest price possible is not one of your priorities. It does not mean that you won’t or cannot get the highest price, but it means that the price is not the deciding factor. A buyer who can give you a quick closing time will appeal much more to you than a buyer who can offer you more money but the negotiation and closing time drag on.

It’s always good to know how low you will go in terms of selling price. This will help to eliminate some of the offers that you find simply offensive or ridiculous. Even though you should consider all offers seriously and take into consideration the terms of each offer, sometimes, if you know the bottom line and are strict about it, you can save yourself time.

Once you know what your limits and reasons are, discuss them with your agent so that they can help you set your goals realistically. If you decide to list your home on your own, make sure you do research on the current market, and you get the proper advice you need in terms of legal issues, etc. The key is to be realistic and to know what your goals are so they can be met.

Testimonials

I was impressed with Margaret & Blair from the moment we met. Their office is beautiful and very unique! Their knowledge of the area was terrific. As a native of Atlanta, I was familiar with the Highlands area, but no expert. They listened to me and helped me determine what was most important in my home selection.They directed me to properties that were right for our family rather than trying to sell me something in a specific club or one of their own listings. I felt like they were working in my best interest. I recommend them to anyone exploring the area. bbjclemsonfan
Great experience. They were very helpful from showing properties through the closing. Recommend them highly to anyone interested in property. They understand what you are looking for and do not waste your time showing you things that they know will not work for you. Susan & John Wiener
