Selling Process.......

My thoughts are that it is always a great time to buy a house that is good.  so that means it is always a great time to SELL a house that is good no matter what type of market we are in. Seller...Buyer...Transitional  Market a good house will always sell.

It is important to understand part of the process...Pricing....Condition ...and Location  

Pricing.. Make sure that your home is competitivly priced. A Buyer going out and looking at homew within a certain price range will look at your home then all the others on the list of homes...so that buyer is already doing a comparitive market analysis of homes in a certain price point. This one has granite the other did not ... the buyer is the one that will ultimatly determine the price of the home by comperable homes.
Take a peak at your competition . Know what you are up agains and make yours better.

CONDITION:
Nobody wants to buy a messy home it makes them think that there is more work to be done. Take the time to get you home in "Show" condition, it may be the easiest way to beat your competition.

LOCATION:
if you house has some quirky location backs to a busy road, or to the rail road tracks...price it accordingly . Think back to when you bought your home... there will be another buyer just like you that does not mind being in a "quirky" location just be patient and most of all PRICE IT RIGHT!

Claudia...your advice is timely.  This is especially true now, with the relentless competition and extremely challenging market conditions.

According to information from the MLS for the Triangle, there are nearly 18,000 homes on the market.  On average those homes are on the market for 103 days.

Today's stats show only 78 listings under contract.  That is less than one half of one percent of the homes on the market.

Need we say any more about how critical it is for sellers to make sure their homes are drop dead gorgeous?  If they don't make this investment and price their home realistically, they may not have the necessary edge to successfully compete in this marketplace.
