Home Sellers Get Their Price

457898_sale_4With all the doom and gloom press, I was curious if everything is going into the toilet or if the real estate market has any bright spots.  So I searched.

In the month of September, there were 6 homes, of over 60, in Pickering that sold for at or above their asking price.  One home in north Pickering sold for $16,000 more than it’s asking price.

In Ajax, there were 13 of more than 120 homes that sold for at or more than their asking price.

Multiple offers on homes are less common across the GTA.  With the number of sales down, it doesn’t seem so back that almost 10% of them sold for their price.

How did they do it?  The strategy is the same for any market—buyers’ market or sellers.  Be the best home for the best price in an area that people want to be in.  Pricing your home to the market with still ensure a sale and a knowledgeable realtor can tell you what that price would be.
