If you know exactly why you are selling then it is easier for you to follow the right plan of action for getting what you want.
If you are a seller who needs to close a sale as quickly as possible, then you should know that getting the highest price possible is not one of your priorities. It does not mean that you won’t or cannot get the highest price, but it means that the price is not the deciding factor. A buyer who can give you a quick closing time will appeal much more to you than a buyer who can offer you more money but the negotiation and closing time drag on.
It’s always good to know how low you will go in terms of selling price. This will help to eliminate some of the offers that you find simply offensive or ridiculous. Even though you should consider all offers seriously and take into consideration the terms of each offer, sometimes, if you know the bottom line and are strict about it, you can save yourself time.
Once you know what your limits and reasons are, discuss them with your agent so that they can help you set your goals realistically. If you decide to list your home on your own, make sure you do research on the current market, and you get the proper advice you need in terms of legal issues, etc. The key is to be realistic and to know what your goals are so they can be met.

Linda and Dave were excellent in several areas with the sale of my home. This included communications, market knowledge and getting the job done. They always returned calls promptly.Ann B.
This note is to let you know how much I appreciated working with you over the last 5 months. When I was selling my duplex you showed me information about the market that I was naïve to. When the buyer was dragging his feet, you said the appropriate words to get him going. During my search for a replacement property you were extremely patient. You spent many nights at the office until 8 p.m. When we finally found the perfect deal you were quick and stealth like. We had the property tied up before most people knew the property was available. Then there was all the paperwork before closing. I would have most assuredly gone mad if you were not there to sort things out. I appreciate all the work you put in to make these deals work. I look forward to working with you in the future.Pete F.
