When Is a Good Time for a Price Reduction?

Factors to Consider Before You Drop Your List Price

Whether you call it a price reduction, an improvement, or an adjustment, nobody wants to hear about lowering prices except a buyer. In a buyer’s market or a slow period, it’s not unusual for sellers to point fingers at agents, and for agents to point fingers at sellers’ unrealistic expectations for a price. Still, there are some times when lowering your asking price is the right move. Before you do, there are a few questions to ask yourself so you can determine your home price-reduction strategy.

Are You Selling in a Buyer’s Market?

Demand falls when the market is slow and inventory is high. If that’s the case, and you’re don’t absolutely have to sell right now, then it may be wise to take your home off the market until things improve. You might be better off renting your house, or staying put until the market rebounds if you’re not highly motivated to sell.

Did You Start Too High?

If you initially priced your home too high, you’ll have to continually reduce the price until you hit that “magic” number. This is referred to as “chasing the market down,” and it’s not a good thing. Buyers will begin to wonder if something is wrong with your house. They’ll also wonder how much lower will you might be willing to go and decide to play a waiting game.

Have You Overlooked Anything?

Ask a friend to stop by and give you an honest opinion of how your house shows—honest being the operative word. Yes, your agent should have nailed this months ago. Your place should show like a masterpiece. But sometimes a fresh set of eyes can pick up on something that you and your agent missed. Find it, fix it, and see if things pick up.

If you’re making a habit of hanging around during showings, you should change it. An owner’s presence often makes buyers feel uncomfortable. Leave your prospective buyers to look around in peace. And don’t turn down showings simply because you don’t want to get out of the house.

The bottom line: Make sure you’re not unwittingly sabotaging your—and your agent’s—efforts before you take the scissors to your listing price.

How Is Your Marketing?

If you feel like the market is right for your asking price, and you’re not doing anything to get in the way, you might want to look at your marketing efforts. Before you reduce your price, consider whether you and your agent are making every effort to sell your home for what you think it’s worth. Questions to ask include:

  • How many hits has your listing received in the MLS?
  • Do the marketing comments sell the benefits or features?
  • What kind of direct mail campaign has been launched?
  • How many open houses have been held?
  • How does the house show online? Are there a lot of beautiful pictures?
  • Is your signage in a prominent location? Does it contain several phone numbers and a website?
  • Do you have a virtual tour published?
  • What kind of feedback have you received from agents and buyers?
  • Are you offering enough compensation to selling agents?
  • How many showings have you had?
Watch Other Listings

If you do decide to reduce your price, it’s important to be strategic about it. Pull up pending sales and find ones that had price reductions. How many days were they on the market (DOM) before the price was reduced, and how much of a price reduction was made? You won’t know the sold price, but you can determine average price reduction percentages. Ignore active listings without price reductions unless they’re similar to yours and the DOM are low.

Run side-by-side comparisons with active listings near the price point you’re considering. Price your home so it falls in the bottom two to five listings or—if you’re really determined—price it less than anything else on the market.

Properties that are priced below what buyers are readily willing to pay will receive multiple offers. This is the case even in distressed markets as home prices slide into downward spirals. In many cases, it’s common to see price wars develop among buyers who are competing, which then results in an accepted offer for more than list price.

Consider a New Listing

You might want to take your home off the market and put it back as a new listing at a different price so your reduction isn’t readily evident to any agents who look at your listing. An entirely new listing looks fresh and exciting to a buyer, and new buyers come into the market all the time. Not every agent studies the history of a listing, so this strategy can help you avoid the stigma of a price reduction.

The Bottom Line
Every seller wants to get the most they can for their home, and you should explore every alternative before you make a price reduction. But sometimes even a small price change can make the difference between a quick sale and watching your home languish on the market. An experienced agent should be able to help you answer the right questions and decide if a price drop is the right decision.

The Top 5 Reasons to Hire a Real Estate Agent

Benefits of Hiring a Real Estate Agent

Buyers and sellers are on separate sides of the fence when it comes to home sales. What one is trying to achieve is often diametrically opposed to what the other wants to see happen—the first usually want to steal the property while the other wants top dollar. And yet, they share the same ultimate goal. They want a sale.

Both sides can benefit significantly from hiring a real estate agent to assist them, but their reasons can be different. 

It’s All About the Money…
Consider this if you’re contemplating going “FSBO”—for sale by owner—when listing your home. Of course, you want to get as much for their home as possible, and you might think that means not parting with extra commissions. But a 2017 study indicated that FSBOs fetched about 30% less for their owners than agent-listed properties. 

And you’re probably going to have to pay a commission anyway if your buyer is represented by an agent. The buyer’s agent’s commission is typically factored into the deal—although you’ll still save on the commission you would otherwise have paid your own agent.  

And why not use an agent if you’re the buyer? After all, the seller is paying the commission, not you. Of course, there’s always a slim possibility that the seller will refuse to do so, but you can probably move on and look at other properties if it appears that this will be the case, although it can depend on whether you’re shopping in a buyers’ or sellers’ market and who has the upper hand. 

…And Attention to Detail
You might be far out of your element when it comes to reviewing and understanding the multiple documents involved in a real estate deal, and you should have a thorough understanding of what you’re getting into regardless of whether you’re buying or selling. Purchase agreements alone can top 10 pages in 2019, not to mention federal, state, and local document requirements. 

Luckily, your agent will be far more familiar with all this paperwork than you are. Consider this if you’re still thinking about saving money: Some mistakes or omissions in these documents can cost you as much as that commission you were trying to avoid paying—or even far more. 

Here’s an example: Maybe a buyer makes an offer on a home, but it’s contingent on getting a mortgage. There’s no possibility that the buyer could purchase the property without first securing financing—but there’s no such contingency or escape hatch built into the purchase agreement to let the buyer out of the deal if financing fails. The buyer is obligated to go through with the sale or be sued if it turns out that a mortgage isn’t happening. 

Consider hiring a broker for a smaller one-time fee to simply review your contracts before signing if you’re still dead set against hiring an agent to take care of all this.

Privacy, Confidentiality, and Fiduciary Duty
Your real estate agent has your back whether you’re a buyer or a seller. Agents have what’s known as a “fiduciary” responsibility to their clients. They legally obligated to put their clients’ best interests first. 

This duty imparts a very high standard for confidentiality. As a buyer, do you really, really want to turn over your most intimate financial details to a FSBO seller who’s under no legal obligation to keep the information confidential? The same goes for turning any and all information over to the seller’s agent, who has no fiduciary responsibility to you but only to the seller. Your own agent would know whether any information the other agent is requesting from you is reasonable. 

You do have recourse if you’re the buyer and the seller’s agent has lied to you, misled you, or disclosed confidential information. You can report it to the agent’s professional association, such as the National Association of Realtors. But again, this assumes that the seller has an agent. You’ll have far fewer options if the property is FSBO. 

Agents Know What to Look For…
Buyers usually have a pretty firm idea in mind of what they want in a property, from number of bedrooms to an attached garage to any number of other must-have and must-not-have factors. You’ll probably feel pretty comfortable looking at homes with that list tucked firmly in the back of your mind.

But your agent will be alert for issues that might not cross your mind, such as furnace issues, leaks, roofing problems, and mold and insect issues. An agent will recognize the telltale signs of these problems and know how best to approach them. Again, this experience and knowledge can end up saving you thousands down the road. 

You know exactly how much you want for your home if you’re the seller, but is the price you’ve arrived at reasonable? You might only know for sure if you’re able to identify comparable sales that confirm that you’re in the right range—or not. Agents can do comparative market analyses in their sleep. 

An agent can hand over-researched, current, and reputable data regarding a neighborhood’s demographics, crime rates, schools, and other important factors. That’s a lot of time-consuming research to do on your own, particularly if you don’t know where to start. 

Agents Have Superior Negotiating Skills
You might not be a negotiation shark if you don’t happen to be an attorney, mediator, union rep…or a real estate agent. Remember that fiduciary responsibility your agent has to you. It’s your agent’s job to get you the best possible price for your home or to see to it that you get the best possible deal on the property you want to buy. 

Agents are trained to negotiate well, if only from experience. They know what normally works and what does not. Most have tried-and-true techniques all their own. And, most importantly, they have no emotional stake in the outcome that can cloud their thinking. 

You, on the other hand, might be willing to come up with $10,000 more to purchase that to-die-for home, never realizing that it’s really not necessary because you possess certain bargaining chips. It’s just more money saved if you have an agent who prevents you from taking an unnecessary financial plunge. 

The Bottom Line

Henry Ford once said that it proves that you’re smarter than they are when you hire people who are smarter than you. The trick is to recognize when you need help and to find the right person.
