First, the key factors you do and don't control. The seller controls the property's condition and price. The seller doesn't control the competition, previously sold homes nearby, whether or not it's a buyer or seller's market nor interest rates. Understanding the key market factors and the proper balance of these factors will expedite your sale. SOLDS… is the single greatest factor affecting value. Neighborhood desirability and recently sold homes is fundamental to a property’s fair market value. COMPETITION…Buyers compare your property against competing properties and buyers interpret value based on SOLD properties. TIMING…The real estate market may reflect a seller’s market or a buyer’s market (current market conditions). Market conditions cannot be manipulated; an individually tailored marketing plan must be developed accordingly along with intelligent list pricing. CONDITION…Property condition affects price and speed of sale. Optimizing physical appearances and advance preparation for marketing maximizes value such as staging. TERMS...The more flexible the financing, the broader the market, the quicker the sale and the higher the price (current market conditions are the exact opposite with very restrictive lending practices). PRICE…If the property is not properly priced in regards to condition & location then a sale may be delayed or even prevented.
First, for those who think a non-stop barking dog is a happy dog and it's your right to inflict a constant disruption of peace upon your neighbors , stop reading here because my post is going to be disagreeable to you. Thus, please skip to the bottom of this post and press play on the YouTube viewer. Turn your volume up on your computer and let it play ALL DAY and NIGHT and no you can't mute it during your phone calls, while reading a book, sleeping or during your favorite tv show. It must play non-stop. If you admit there is a problem, please seek the help of an expert trainer, or non-profit animal organization. There is a solution and my hope is your neighbors won't have to 'enforce' the laws and ordinances. Lastly, your dog isn't happy. He's lonely and miserable that's why he barks all day (and night).
