Did you know that there is a honeymoon period when selling a house or condo?
In Edmonton today, creating market exposure for a home is the easy part. Over 90% of buyers are using the internet to search for a home. The internet really is your friend when advertising your metro Edmonton home for sale.
When your home listing first hits the market, all eyes will be on it. If you are positioned correctly, you should expect to see a dozen or more buyer candidates in the first 2 weeks and an offer, especially at peak home and condo selling times such as now.
It’s during the first 2 weeks that home buyers will be under extreme pressure to beat out other buyers and make really strong proposals to you.
What happens after that first 2 weeks? The honeymoon is over.
Most often, you will see the numbers of showings drop off and if you do get an offer, it will likely be much more aggressive, ie buyers will be asking you to accept an offer on their terms, not yours. Prospective buyers will often make an offer with a large discount built in if your home has been languishing on the market for some time.
