How Pricing Works
Studies show that price accounts for 80% of the effectiveness of any real estate marketing campaign. That's why it's imperative to price your Maine home at fair market value right from the start. With this approach, you'll often find that the first offer on your home is frequently your best offer.
The figure below illustrates that only homes priced at market value (or below) appeal to the largest group of buyers. Over pricing your home shrinks the prospective buyer pool by more than 50 per cent. It further illustrates that a property priced just 15 per cent above the market value appealed to none of the qualified buyer pool.
Time on market can also significantly impact the value of your home. Your property will attract the most interest from buyers and real estate agents when it first appears on the market, with activity decreasing as the market time increases As the chart shows, the most opportune time to generate a sale on property is three to seven weeks after listing it with a real estate agent.
