How important is pricing it right the day a property is listed?It''s the MOST important thing. You might here an agent say "well, it can't hurt to try it at $269,900" when in reality you and your agent knows it really worth $250,000 max. Does Wal-Mart say "let's try selling our goods $10 above what a buyer is really willing to pay, and if they don't want to pay that we can just lower it." NO they do not. Why would a home owner try it. Unless you are in no hurry to sell your house for the Highest Price, and in the least amount of time then pricing it right at the beginning may not be a priority. Hire a real estate agent that has knowledge of YOUR market and can ZERO in on the real value, Otherwise you could be wasting alot of peoples time. Get it priced right, right out of the gate - you WILL get better offers, and more of them and lose alot less sleep.
