Mary’s Five Fast Fun Facts

Hi, all. Had a couple random Real Estate fun facts that I thought I’d pass along.

1.) The best day of the week to list your home? Answer: it’s Friday!

2.) The best month of the year to sell is April! Homes sold last year at 99.2% price-to-list as opposed to December (only at 97.3%)

3. You have a 120% better chance of selling your home when you use a Realtor. ImageAnd I’m not the kind of person to preach at folks for trying it on their own.. In fact, I earned my Realtor license so I COULD do it all myself! However, the average person will benefit from the experience of a professional who has completed multiple transactions. {More on this later.}

4.) Homes tend to sell in 90 days when listed in the Spring.

5.) And finally, your best marketing strategy for selling your home? Pricing it competitively right out of the gate. During the first week a listing debuts on the market, it receives nearly four times more visits on real estate Web sites than it will a month later.

That’s it for now, short and sweet! It’s been a fun week in Real Estate, I will share some insights later including buying a Homepath property and Homepath’s new Short Sale Process.
