Pricing Strategies Exercised by Dodi Thorhaug

The competitive nature of the current Real Estate Market means that over-pricing by a few thousand dollars could make the difference between your home selling quickly or not selling at all.

Overpricing your home might might result in minimized offers, fewer showings, fewer agent responses, limited financing, limited buyers qualified for your type of home, or a smaller net price. Avoid these outcomes by setting the price of your home at its' market value when you first bring your home to the market.

Any number of the following scenarios could cause a roadblock between you and your goals. My responsibility to you is to identify potential pitfalls and eliminate them.

There are several criteria you should take into consideration when pricing your home:

  • Never select an agent based on price.
  • Pricing in rising and falling markets
  • Four kinds of numbers used to represent your property
  • Regression and progression
  • Reasons for overpricing
  • The largest impression and most impact a property makes on the market
  • Benefits of proper pricing

For more details on Pricing Strategies,
please call me at 604-644-3634 or contact me at dodi.t@shaw.ca

In closing, please remember that together we can control the Market Plan for your property. And, while we have no control over the Real Estate market, we can fully understand it and work it to your benefit.

Estimating Market Value

To arrive at an accurate estimate of fair market value, 3 important variables must be considered:

  • A list of comparable properties in your area that are currently for sale
  • A list of comparable properties in your area that have recently sold
  • A list of comparable properties in your area that were listed and subsequently have not sold

How Long Does It Take?

The length of time it takes to market a house will vary. Some properties will sell in just a few days, others may require several months. Following are the six factors that influence the time it takes to sell a property.

  • Competition
  • Price
  • Property
  • Financing
  • Timing
  • Marketing

Make Your House More "Sellable"

While we all believe that our home is our castle, our personal tastes may not appeal to everyone. I will work with you to provide you with an impartial analysis of your home - how it relates to other "competing" homes on the market and how your home reflects current design and style trends. I'll also closely evaluate the general condition and upkeep of your property.

I'll work with you to position your home on the market so that the selling process will take place as expeditiously as possible.

Use my Professional Marketing Program to Sell Your Home!

I will work with you to develop a unique marketing program, catered specifically to your needs and goals. This begins with my Automated Internet Marketing System. This system allows me to respond immediately and directly to every prospective buyer. On my website, buyers can get information immediately about your home. They can access my site any time and view your property listing.

Through my Personal Home Search, your listing will be sent to every prospective North Vancouver buyer in my database, when your home meets their personal criteria. I will continue to e-mail it to prospective buyers as long as your home is on the market.

As soon as you list your home with me, I will enter your listing in the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) database. Other agents can immediately access your property information by computer. Plus, your property will be included in any printed MLS publications.

I regularly advertise in North Vancouver & North Shore area magazines and newspapers and send out direct mail pieces to potential buyers.

You will appreciate my full service, added value and commitment to service that will provide you with information on all aspects of selling to ensure you get the highest possible price for your home in the shortest period of time.
