Is it bad to say "Seller Motivated" in listing?I remember reading a few years ago that a seller shouldn't use the words "motivated" to sell because it made a seller seem desperate and it would appear to buyers that something was wrong with the house. This didn't make sense to me at the time but because it was such a seller's market at that time, perhaps it was true. If you were having trouble selling your house in 2004, there probably was something really wrong with it.But in this market, is it a bad thing? I have to sell my house and I'm selling at rock bottom price. I'm literally just trying to break even. Is it wrong to advertise that I desperate and motivated to get out? I know for me, as someone who is also a buyer, I find myself gravitating toward the motivated sellers and being turned off by people who the realtors tell me are "not motivated to sell at all". Is it just me? Should I avoid saying I'm motivated? My house is going on the market for below appraisal and even below Zillow value. We are being relocated out of state so I need to sell fast.
