With only around 1,200 homes for sale today in Staten Island and the market flooded with buyers it is truly a seller's market. What is a seller's market you ask? How will this benefit you as the seller? Let me explain. A seller's market is when there are more buyers than sellers resulting in higher prices due to the excess of demand over supply. Due to the shortage of inventory multiple buyers will bid on a property turning it into a bidding war (sold to the highest bidder). Of course there are many factors that play a role in this.
One factor is choosing the right agent. Choosing the right agent is crucial to the sale of your home. The right agent can help you buy or sell your home quickly. Interview a couple of agents and ask yourself these questions. Are you impressed? Are they professional? Do they seem competent? A good agent will invest in marketing to ensure they get the best price for your property. Look at the agent and company's website. Are the descriptions and pictures clear and relevant?
Pricing you home to fair market value is crucial. If your property is overpriced be prepared for your home to sit on the market. If its priced to sell you are most likely to get an offer within a few days to weeks. A good agent can help you come up with a realistic price for your home.
The rules of engagement for buying has changed. In this market the sellers are taking the best offers and offers with the least amount of hassles.
