Is your house not selling? Adjust your ‘goody to price’ ratio.

What do I mean by this?

When buyers are looking at your home, they are comparing it to others for sale at the same time.

Who sells first?

The home seller that offers the best ‘bundle of goodies’ included when considered against your asking price.

If your ratio is set wrong, you will not sell.

If your ratio is set correctly, you will sell in a reasonable period of time and perhaps with multiple offers.

Essentially, you have 2 methods to adjust the ratio.

1. Adjust your price down, so that when compared to the bundle of goodies on offer, your price is fair.


2. You could include more goodies.

The easiest goody to offer is a fast possession date. Other goodies might include fresh paint, new carpet, new roof, better landscaping and any other deficiency in your home.
