Orange County CA Home Sellers, are you overpriced?

Posted on March 2, 2008. Filed under: Home Seller Tips, Informed Investor Alliance, Orange County Real Estate | Tags: |

The Orange County Real Estate market is moving.  What direction?  Many.  What are we seeing?  Good deals, strapped homeowners.  What are we hearing?  Happy stories, Sad stories.  There’s a positive and a negative in every environment, and we always encourage you to look at the glass as half full.

 BUT….if your house is on the market right now….are you chasing the market down?  What if your Realtor is doing it for you?  Are you AND your agent strong enough to take the truth?  I read this sad story on a popular Realtors “hub” online, its from a Realtor working out of Florida.   

OC Sellers and potential sellers, you often choose to work with the agent who says your home is worth the most money.  I want to encourage you to question the pricing method, not just get “sold” on potential dollar signs.  Question the marketing strategies, your agent better have the money to do traditional marketing or they better be able to kick butt online.  ASK how many contacts they have in their database, how many listings they have had expire, how many buyers they have searching on their website.  If the agent at your listing appointment has a dog and pony show, and you buy into that without question, it could be a nightmare for everyone in the end.

Also, expect to be QUESTIONED yourself.  A good agent is mostly questions, tayloring their strategies to your specific needs and situation.    A good agent will listen to and really hear what you have to say, but they will also be strong and smart enough to TELL you things you may not want to hear.
