Timing Matters: The First Three Weeks are the Most Crucial

 

"Observe due measure, for timing is in all things the most important factor." ~ Hesiod

 

Sales activity has a life of its own. And it's predictable. Most homes just on the market generate a kind of immediate "buzz" and interest that excites agents and bring in prospects. And, while there's generally a six week window of opportunity to maximize exposure to potential buyers (and their agents), the first three weeks are the most crucial. As you can see, there's a dramatic rise the first week, but activity begins to fall off after the second week.

 

Pricing a Home

 

What this means to you as a home seller is that you must hit the ground running - with the right price in place. The price may be the single greatest determinant in a successful sale. But, of course it's not the only one. Price should be placed in the context of marketing and other activity. The key is to set the right price from the start and front-load the sales and marketing effort.
