Selling Real Estate - Think like a Business Man

By: Harry Johnson

If you bought or sold your first home then you may be perplexed by the current market. Potential buyers are taking weeks or months to make a decision about a property. They are no longer willing to pay top rupees for a home in poor condition. They might look at a fixer if it is priced right but will not pay a premium price for a marginal property.

First things first, what can you afford? This is one of those times when you will have to sit down and come up with a budget, I know it sounds boring but its better to spend an hour on this now than to find out you can't make rent in two months! Take into account food, utilities, transportation, entertainment, and shopping.

With a return to traditional real estate markets, selling your home is not the slam dunk process it used to be. Here are some questions you need to consider when selling.

  • Is the house ready to be sold?

  • Are you properly focused on the correct attributes of the property?

The decision to sell your home is one that should not be taken lightly. Make sure you understand the ramifications. If you decide to sell, put your best foot forward with the property.

Those who are finding a home at first Find a realtor, and start looking. Keep in mind that the faster the realtor can rent you a place the more time they will save and conversely the more money they can make. Take your time; look at a number of apartments. Make sure to take notes on which apartments you liked and why?

If your home has been on the market over three weeks without an offer and few people are showing up at the Sunday Open House... Relax... Do not panic and frustrated. You did not choose the wrong agent... This is just a return to a normal market.

A prospective purchaser will buy when they perceive a definite value. They will no longer be willing to overpay on the assumption that the home will double in value in 6 months. This does not mean that prices are dropping drastically because they aren't. It does mean prices will increase at a slower pace.

Many Sellers have a hard time adjusting to a slower market. Many Sellers get into trouble and wind up chasing a down market. They continue to list at a price higher then market value in the hope that someone will still pay their price.
