There is an array of numbers to consider.  The asking price carries very little importance except how many buyers will be attracted to the property.  There is market value, which is difficult to estimate in a strong sellers' market.  There is the price that your buyer can pay based on their financial situation, and there is the price that they would like to pay.


Since they can't pay more than they can afford, their offering price will fall somewhere between the last two numbers.  Several factors will influence their decision: How badly do they want the property, what's their BATNA - do they need a home, and do they believe the values will continue to rise?  Only the buyer can answer these questions; the agent helps them build the framework.  It's your job to help your buyer establish a reserve price, which is defined as the price at which they are indifferent between a deal and no deal.


"The price at which I am indifferent

between a deal and no deal."


If they want the property, and there are several other offers, your buyer will likely choose to offer their reserve price.  Holding anything back creates a risk of losing the property and isn't prudent unless the buyer is ok with that risk.

In today's market, well actually in any market, I try to preview as many homes as possible.  There is no such thing as seen one, seen them all.  There are the TLC's (requires tender loving care...to various degrees!!!), the nice family home, the "I could retire to this kind of living home" and the homes which only a select few might have the opportunity to live in. And of course, one sees all kinds of sizes, layouts, decorating.  Everybody has a different idea on what they want in a home and for REALTORS®, the more we see, the better informed we are to help in your search. Today, I previewed homes in Tantallon, Queensland and around Bayswater, along the Aspotogan.  Pictured above, new construction, ICF foundation, two large bedrooms, both with ensuite, year round living in a beautiful location.

And although overcast, ocean view, always hard to beat.


So, if your looking for the above, year round, nice lot, easy care interior, 40 minutes to the city, well just call, text or email me and I'll be able to tell you more about this home. Chuck 902-233-5834     dcgroocock@gmail.com
