We are always honest with pricing
Before we met with the sellers, another agent suggested they list far below their home’s value and let the buyers bid it up. They came to us unsure, and we told them the truth. Agents got away with crazy strategies in 2021 due to record demand and short supply. Times have changed. Accurate pricing is crucial. Plus, we would never play games with someone else’s equity.
So, we looked at the numbers. Comparable sales averaged $2.4M. We suggested $2.35M, still an attractive price point but not selling ourselves short. We sold in two days for $2.5M—a full $150K above our list price and $500K higher than the lowball strategy, which no bidding war would have achieved in our current market. At the end of the day, we know our strategy put more money in the seller’s pocket. We generated multiple offers and closed above asking, when most listings were not seeing that sort of activity.
We are always honest with pricing. We will not promise an unrealistic price just to get your listing. We shoot straight based upon the numbers, and together we determine the appropriate strategy. We collaborate together, and we win together. Even other local agents and appraisers rely on Pete Caspersen to help them get the numbers right.
