Overpricing your home.Today’s market is hot, but if you price your home too high, it’s going to sit on the market for months at a time. When a house is on the market for months on end, typically it sells for less than true market value. The people who come through your listing within the first few weeks after it’s been listed are the ones who are most likely to make a purchase at market value (and above!). If you price your home correctly, you might even receive multiple offers, which is the best case scenario as a seller. With multiple offers, you’ll be in the best negotiating position to get the highest price for your house.
