Selling your home is primarily about Marketing, and knowing Casta del Sol's unique micro-market. We've got to know whats sold recently and understand why it sold at that price, and then price your property accordingly. Price it too high and we'll miss out on the "new house on the market frenzy", and lose a qualified Buyer. Too low and you'll lose money that's rightfully yours. We've hosted a lot of tours in Casta del Sol the past 8 years, viewing hundreds of homes with earnest Buyers, learning what they want and what they feel is good value.
For example, over 80% of the time the first thing Buyers comment about, as soon as they enter the house, is popcorn ceilings and dual pane windows. It's a turn-off for many if one or both of those two enhancements doesn't exist, even if the rest of the house shows well ... that initial negative perception holds them back from getting serious. Because of that, it's really important for us to evaluate how much it'd cost and the return on investment, if either of those apply. You won't make more money with that strategy, but breaking even isn't bad if it results in selling the house quicker with the same net profit.
We have Buyers waiting for the next Casta del Sol listing
Some Buyers purchase their home quickly - the shortest amount of time for us has been 6 days. Others take a long time - the longest was over 4 years. Since our website primarily attracts Buyers, we have a list of active serious Buyers, sitting on the sidelines, waiting for the next active listing to hit the Casta del Sol market.
Some of them won't consider anything other than a house thats been totally renovated. Price isn't an object, as long as they get exactly what they want. Some want a house that hasn't had anything done to it - they want to renovate it themselves, with the colors and style they choose. Then there's the folks in the middle ... their primary concern is location ... they usually want a view lot, but some want a secluded location. They don't care if they have to renovate it, but would prefer most the renovation already be done, as long as they get the location they want.
