How long were you a Willing Qualified Buyer until you bought your present home?
How long have you been out of the real estate market since buying your home?
The truth is Willing Qualified Buyers in today's market are;
- Harder to find
- Have lots of choices
- Are not in the market very long
- Are looking for a great house at a great price
- Not looking at over market value priced properties
- Not looking at advertising from Realtors advertising Realtors
The truth is Willing Qualified Buyers Compare Prices Only!
While they look at all the other properties in their Buying Power target range.
The truth is Willing Qualified Buyers are Shoppers!
Buyers are outgoing through homes and comparing what you have to offer compared to all other options including doing nothing.
Right now, in Calgary, there are over 8,000 active listings. Over 8,000 properties jumping up and down, shouting loud and waving their arms trying to get the attention of the few Willing Qualified Buyers.
Less than 1,500 homes sold in Aug 2018.
Less than 1 in 5 homes sold in Aug 2018 of the over 8,000 on the market.
The odds of selling are stacked against all properties that are not priced competitively.
Testing the market is a complete waste of time. Those days are gone for the foreseeable future.
Willing Qualified Buyers first step is to search for homes MLS® Listed by Price. The next step is to browse the pictures. Then explore the details and history of only the short list of properties meeting their criteria. Next Willing Qualified Buyers ask to book appointments to see the short list of homes with the goal of eliminating all but one!
The most important thing to get right when selling a home is PRICE. If a home was on the market and didn’t sell it’s because the Price didn’t meet the buyer’s perception of value.
Price is what you pay. Value is what you get.
Two loonies are for sale. One is offered at $1.05, the other at 95 cents.
It’s obvious which one will sell quickly, and which one will sit on the shelve forever or be taken off the market?
Real Estate is the same, offer value and you sell quickly, over price and never sell.
