First finishers price it right!

News at Waterfords | 21/07/2023

As we keep reading in the headlines of late; property prices have moderated. While demand remains strong across the market, sensible and realistic initial pricing of a home impacts on the success for a quicker and smoother sale.

Data from Rightmove indicates that properties that experience a price reduction are 10% less likely to go under offer. They are also on the market for more than double the time, before they go SSTC (Sold Subject To Contract).

After a period in which property prices have risen sharply, sellers can be overly optimistic in their expectations. That’s why it’s more important than ever before to choose an experienced and knowledgeable agent that will price the property for the current market.

Latest research by Zoopla indicates that the average reduction on initial asking price at point of sale is 3.8%, although more than 40% of recent sellers have accepted offers of 5% or more below.
