HOW TO SET THE RIGHT PRICE?
“The right Price is neither set by the Agent, nor by the Seller, it´s set by the Market. “
Setting the right price is vital to sell it. To make your property attractive and not frighten potential buyers, it is important to decide a real market price. Setting the right price from the beginning means taking advantage of the initial process of the sale.
If you really want to sell your property, don´t influence yourself by the prices of the properties that are already in the market.
Frequently they stay at the market for long time in the same situation and will remain there for much more. It is clear that everyone remembers the high prices of the real estate bubble, so the temptation to ask for too much is usual.

WHAT THE VALUE OF YOUR HOUSING IS BASED ON
On the area and location of the property and in the future perspectives of the environment.
On the property condition and the general features of it.
On the supply and demand of the current real estate market.
On the financing and current purchasing power.
On the quality perception of the buyer.
On the current competition.
On the proximity and quality of public services, medical centers, transport, schools, privileged areas, proximity and sea views ...

WHAT THE VALUE OF YOUR HOUSING IS NOT BASED ON.
On your feelings towards it.
On your needs or your mortgage debt.
On the amount you spent on it.
On what you want or you can ask for.
On what is the price of your future property.
On what your neighbours ask or your family suggests.
On the upward appraisals.
On the high prices of the real estate bubble.
DANGERS OF ASKING TOO MUCH FOR YOUR PROPERTY
If the price is correct from the beginning, the best offers are usually received in the first 30 days from the sale offer.
An expensive property will help the other sellers to sell their ones. Your expensive property will serve for the others to prove that their housing price is correct and it´s a great opportunity.
The seller will lose potential interested buyers. Clients only visit those properties that are within price. Even if the seller is willing to accept lower offers, he will not receive them because potential buyers won´t see the property.
If there are no visits, there are no sale opportunities.
The property will "burn" in the real estate market. People avoid seeing houses with illegible weathered posters that could mean they are too expensive or there is something wrong with it.
You will spend a lot of time in visits without results, until you finish tired and tired of showing it. Even you could withdraw it from the sale or wrongly renting it.
If you do not live in the house you will also have to spend money on maintenance and municipal taxes. You will risk squatters “Okupas” occupying your house or deterioration of itself.
The house will have problems with the appraisal. Even if someone made an offer without knowing the market, the bank knows the property value and won´t grant a loan for it. The seller will have to lower the price or he will lose the transaction.
Why doesn´t anyone call me to buy my house?
The answer is simple: the price is high. Few are willing to assume that the price of their properties is too high. Some sellers believe that if there are no available buyers, means the banks don´t grant mortgages. Be flexible with the sale price of your home, it´s not about hurry or urgency, the market prices is what it is, with or without haste. There are not always opportunities in the market. We suggest you to be receptive to potential offers for your property.
It is senseless to continue doing the same without results and expect things to change …

Let the professionals take over.
Avoid time and money on trips. If you do not live in the house you are selling, it´s better provide the keys to the agent. You will avoide losing time and money on trips and we won´t depend on specific days or schedules. Our agent will sign a certificate of delivery of keys as responsible for the proper use of it.
Be flexible with the visiting hours, if you live in the house. Bear in mind the best buyers could have very demanding work schedules and could visit your house in certain schedule or days.
Work with your real estate agent. If you are trying to sell the property on your own, remember that there are real professionals whose daily work is to help promote and sell your home, in addition to providing financial service for it.
