The Power of Demand Based Pricing

 

Have we hit a hard ceiling on pricing in the country?

According to a recent study the number of homes receiving over full price has fallen dramatically. In addition the appreciation rate has slowed to 3-4% in many areas of the country. Here are some numbers that provide some insight:

  • The share of U.S. homes that sold for more than their list price in 2019 fell to 19.9%, the lowest annually since 2016.
  • Homes that sold above list last year typically brought in $5,100 more than the asking price, down from $5,500 the year before.

Even with record low inventory and strong demand buyers are now resisting higher prices. Why? One reason is income, over the past twenty years incomes have been relatively stable with very little growth. 

So how can we help sellers navigate the changing market landscape? One way is to explain demand based pricing. Watch the video to learn how identifying and explaining buyer demand to a seller can help them position their home to attract more showings...

Are you finding that sellers are reluctant to put their home on the market?

Home Values Fall for the First Time in Seven Years - New Game Plan

 

Pending home sales surged in March up 3.8% (blowing past economists expectations of only .07%) but there is a catch the median US home value fell for the first time in seven years in April. Why are sales surging but prices are now falling?

The answer isn't that demand has changed. Buyers are still in the market and sales have ebbed and flowed with interest rates. What is changing are inventory levels. More inventory is piling up across the country. This means more to choose from for buyers and more pricing pressure for sellers. To attract a buyer sellers have to price their home's to compete against more and more inventory hitting the market daily. 

Watch this video to explore a game plan for having three key conversations with your sellers to ensure they get their pricing right!

How to Easily Overcome Zestimates with Buyers and Sellers

 

But Zillow say's the house is worth .....

At some point you will hear a buyer or seller say these words to you. How you respond can determine if you will gain a client's trust or potentially lose a listing or a sale. Ultimately buyers and sellers are driven by a need to feel confident in their decision making. What they are looking for is clarity and certainty. This is often why they go in search of answers from sites like Zillow and why they sometimes embrace Zestimates. 

To be viewed as a real estate expert it's important to define yourself as someone who provides not just information but more importantly interpretation of data.  You are the consultant, the adviser, and most importantly the clients advocate.
