A tip for home sellers:
So, your house is for sale, you just had a showing, and your Realtor contacted you afterwards. The feedback from the buyer sounds something like this:
“The bedrooms are too small” “The kitchen doesn’t have enough cupboards” “We don’t like the floor plan” “The house needs updating” “We don’t care for the yard”
Sound familiar? What does this *really* mean?
Keep in mind that buyers have probably seen many, many houses that are similar in size and price to your house. They are comparing one house against the other–sometimes seeing many in one day or one weekend with their agent.
What they are really saying is…”this one has bedrooms that are too small *compared to other houses we have seen that are similar in price*”
It can only mean one thing, time to lower the list price, and spring is a great time to take action and get an offer so you can move onward!
