I believe that it is very important for home sellers to understand the buyer’s market that we are now experiencing by giving those who wish to list their homes my very best advice. As a real estate expert in the Birmingham, Alabama areas of Mountain Brook, Homewood, Vestavia Hills, Hoover, Inverness, and the Highway 280 Corridor to Chelsea, I believe that it is a huge mistake to list your home at a price above what the current market will bear.
Price is currently driving the market, and everyone wants a bargain. To be competitive and have serious traffic through your home, the listing price must be what the current market reflects, regardless of what homes sold for in your neighborhood several months ago.
Remember, when you want to buy your next home you will get the same great prices from the other side of the transaction. Try to be realistic if you must sell your home now. We cannot control the market, but we can control the price!
