The Buyers Market: Sellers

By: Albert Bor

The buyers market is not the best time to be selling a home but if you spend some time and effort in creating that perfect atmosphere for your home, it is likely that you will be able to sell quickly. In a buyer's market there are more homes for sale than there are buyers, so it becomes critical to set your home apart from other participants in the local market. Ideally you would be able to hold off on the sale of your home until the market evolves into a seller's market and there is a high demand for homes; but sometimes a seller simply has to sell A.S.A.P.

Selling during a buyer's market means that there will be a larger number of people viewing your home as buyer's will want to see all the homes that fit their needs.

It is unfortunate for sellers that during a buyer's market, prospective purchasers will be making lower offers, secure in the knowledge that if one seller does not accept their offer there are any number of others who will. The difference in the bottom line price will depend largely on the area your home is in, it's proximity to amenities and major places of commerce, extras and incentives and on the quality of the home itself.

If it is necessary to sell your home during a buyer's market then you should really take some time to consider what other sellers are offering ion your area. Take a look at the other homes that are currently listed and compare yours to them. It is in times like this where you have to be realistic and honest with yourself about the desirability of the package that you are offering. If you feel that it is lacking in comparison to other homes then it is possible that buyers will think likewise and this could drop your bottom line price in the end. Selling in a buyer's market is all about presentation and making sure that your home is one of the most attractive and competitively price options for the numerous buyers that are ready to purchase.
