Price Really Matters When Selling Your House in River Bend


  Every home seller in Riverbend London Ontario would like to realize as much money as possible when selling their home.  The natural inclination is to price the home a little higher, thinking they can always come down in the future.

Riverbend London Ontario Houses Sold

 But listing any house or condo in London Ontario with a price that is too high more often than not,  nets the seller LESS money than an original price at market value.

 Why is this?

  Buyers know prices, they may have already been in 6-10 homes, they can compare and in the long run, the buyer will decide if a home is priced right! Not you, your Realtor, your neighbour or your hair dresser  or Uncle Bob who knows everything!

 If there are no offers on a listing after 30 days, what do you think the reason was?

 Most price their home high, thinking they can always come down.  Problem is, the Realtor and the buyer community do not look at it that way.  They see it as an overpriced property.  After a few weeks or even months  go by, a few open houses, signs, agent tours and not a nibble.

 Finally, in order to attract attention, the price gets reduced more than  ever than they thought they would, and they are now netting much less than if they had priced it correctly in the beginning.

 And think about this:  The money  lost is not just the lower sales price, but all the extra interest on the mortgage…all the extra property taxes and other carrying costs that accrue while the home is waiting to sell.

 I’ve seen it happen time and again!    

 I call it chasing the market or to be subtle, like falling off a cliff in the night, you know you are going to hit  bottom but you don’t know when!

  Real Estate Fact: The Seller Is Solely Responsible For How Much, and How Quickly Their Home Sells!

                    pricing too high

 Overpricing almost always increases time to sell, and adds to the carrying costs.  ​

 I wrote a seller's guide that sheds some light on maximizing the sale price:                             

  • How to set the asking price to maximize exposure and a profitable sale.
  • How do you really define and compare market value between homes?
  • How the total market performance may affect your home sale – positive or negative.
  • How to handle buyers during any showing to help yield the highest price.
  •  

Once you can grasp these important issues, you’ll know how to price and sell your home for the fastest, most profitable sale.  

Also, with this information, you’ll never pay too much for any home you buy for the rest of your life.


Buying a Home In London Ontario Should Not Be a Problem


   When people buy a home in London Ontario , it is for one reason and one reason only, to solve a problem!

  Solving problems when buying a home in London Ontario

  • House or condo too small?Too big? Solve the problem by buying something bigger or smaller

  • Too Expensive? Solve ……..

  • Relocating? Solve …….
  • Don’t like the neighbourhood? Solve ……

  • Divorced? Living Together? Getting Married? Solve ……

  • Fill in the blanks ___________________? Solve ………

    I have been a Realtor for quite a few years and own the brokerage and have learned that people do not hire us because we are just a Realtor who can help buy or sell a home, anybody can do that, that is what the average do.

  People hire us because we solve problems, we identify them, take a focused view and solve the problem, end of story!

  You don’t hire  a Realtor because you need a taxi driver,  or because they are pretty, ugly, skinny, fat, bald, young or old, you have a problem(which can be good or bad) and you want someone to listen and solve the problem quickly and save some money as well.

 And, can back it up with proof, not talk!


Downsizing To or From Riverbend in London Ontario?


   There is a Huge Difference Between Logical & Emotional Decisions When Buying or Selling a Home  in London Ontario or any other place in Canada

 

 The majority of Canadians do not buy or sell logically. Most buy or sell emotionally and then try to justify  those decisions logically.

 

    logic or emotion when selling?

 

  In real estate, some real estate salespeople logically try to convince their clients to buy. That is why they do not sell many homes or help buyer’s buy homes! Knowing that people will get involved in a property emotionally first & then; it is up to the real estate sales representative to provide solid, logical reasons to justify the purchase or even for that matter, the sale of a home.

 

  Everything we buy is an emotional purchase. Take the shoes you are wearing. That is a logical point however the colour & style is your emotional choice.

 

  What about a certain brand of food when there are 5 others just like it? We buy it because of advertising, or your parents or friends bought it. You do not logically decide which brand to buy unless you are a frugal shopper and even then, saving money is an emotional decision!

 

  In real estate, the same thing. Everyone needs shelter of some kind, which is the logical point. The type they presently own or rent is an emotional decision. Buyers may want a home of a certain size or location or like they grew up in, that is an emotional decision. For others, it may be based on what they can afford. 

 

   That may sound logical but money and emotions are linked.

 

    So, when it comes time to sell a house or buy a house or a condo, are they logical or emotional decisions?  

 

  To effectively get buyers involved in your home, your listing Realtor must help the buyer and their real estate salesperson make your house stand out physically, emotionally and financially.

 

Make your house in London Stand Out

 

    To effectively help buyers to acquire your home, your salesperson must eliminate those things that create fear or tension and replace them with words; images and information that will make a home buyer want to invest their hard-earned money in your home.

 

 When you are planning to buy, you may want to do the opposite and from experience, I have seen well balanced people make some poor choices, which were emotional and not logic.

 

 

   Logic or emotion is your choice! So is the Realtor you choose to help you.


Grandchildren Like Riverbend Golf Community


One child wrote the  following:  

         Grandchildren in Riverbend

We always used to spend the holidays with Grandma and Grandpa.   They used to live in a big brick house but Grandpa got retarded and they moved to Riverbend where everyone lives in nice little houses, and so they don't have to mow the grass anymore!

  They ride around on their bicycles and scooters and wear name tags because they don't know who they are anymore.  They go to a building called a wreck centre, but they must have got it fixed because it is all okay now.

They do exercises there, but they don't do them very well.   There is a swimming pool too, but they all jump up and down in it with hats on. At their gate, there is a doll House with a little old man sitting in it.

He watches all day so nobody can escape. Sometimes they sneak out, and go cruising in their golf carts!  

 Nobody there cooks, they just eat out..  And, they eat the same thing every night --- early birds.  

Some of the people can't get out past the man in the doll house.  The ones who do get out, bring food back to the wrecked centre for pot luck.  

My Grandma says that Grandpa worked all his life to earn his retardment and says I should work hard so I can be retarded someday too.

   When I earn my retardment, I want to be the man in the doll house. Then I will let people out, so they can visit their grandchildren.
