Consider Price Brackets When Selling Your Home

Consider Price Brackets When Selling Your Home

When selling your home it is important to have a pricing strategy. Consider price brackets when selling your home in your overall pricing strategy.

When potential home buyers are searching the internet they search by a variety of different things like; sales price, number of bedrooms and bathrooms, location, pool or no pool, number of garages, ect. The overall factor for most people is the sales price and what they can afford so the main component in a home buyers search is price.

When people search for homes on the internet they do it in sales price blocks typically done in $25,000 to $50,000 increments. Let’s say someone budget is $275,000 they would have their search set up from $225,000 to $300,000 knowing that homes priced $25,000 over their budget they may be able to negotiate down to $275,000.

PRICING YOUR HOME ACCORDING to BRACKETS

Buyers search in price brackets; therefore, it is better to be priced at $150,000 than $149,000. This way you appear in searches for homes priced from $100,000 to $150,000 and in searches for homes priced from $150,000 to $200,000.

Here’s a buyer searching for homes online.

At $149,000 you only appear here:

  • $100,000 to $150,000

At $150,000 you appear here and  here:

  • $100,000 to $150,000

AND

  • $150,000 to $200,000
