Selling A Home - Are You Motivated?
Perhaps the most important question that I have to ask potential home-sellers in todays market is "How motivated are you to sell your home?" Nothing impacts the sale-ability of a home more than the Seller's motivation. Once you have determined the real value of your home, your motivation to sell it is what is going to determine how aggressive you will be in the positioning of your home in the market. To better understand this point, let's take a look at the different motivation levels that we see in most home owners.
What Is Your Motivation Level In Selling Your Home?
Anybody who's motivation is from a zero to a seven is a "Casual" seller. The Casual seller is somebody that says things like "we are not in a hurry," or "we don't want to give it away." This seller says "We will see if we get our price." To be perfectly blunt, sellers in this group WILL NOT sell their homes in this market! We do not even agree to list their homes. They simply are not motivated enough to sell a home in Tallahassee when we know less than 1 in 3 that enter the market will sell.
Anybody who's motivation is centered around a definitive goal (I need to move to Houston... we're having a baby and want four bedrooms...) is considered to have a motivation level of an eight or nine. They are ready to sell at "Perceived Market Value." They are priced "with" the competition, not "better" than the competition. This is a "Serious" seller and this seller might sell their home in this market.
The "Very Serious" seller must sell now. They are a "10" on the motivation scale. The "Very Serious Seller" is willing to create a perception of value, positioning their homes more favorable than the competition. This Seller WILL sell their home in this market
So, if you are considering selling your Tallahassee home, what is your motivation level?
