As with any real estate report, what’s actually going on in a particular neighborhood is far more important which is why it’s so important to retain the services of an experienced Las Vegas real estate agent in determining an appropriate market value for a particular Las Vegas home. Site location, upgrades of the home and numerous other factors including market conditions taking place right now are all extremely important in pricing your Las Vegas home right. Automatic online valuations can be completely misleading so don’t rely on them especially with current market conditions where there are more buyers then Las Vegas homes available for sale.
It’s really kind of ridiculous at this point of time where Las Vegas home sellers are listing their Las Vegas homes for sale and receiving 20+ offers in one day. There have been more buyers then listings available for sale for several months now so receiving that many offers in a day or two is an obvious indication that the list price was too low to begin with.
You can take a look at this neighborhood marketing report of a Summerlin Home I listed and sold for what I’m talking about. Instead of barraging the owner with 30 offers for their Summerlin home, we received four that were easy to manage and decide from. Does it require a higher degree of marketing skills, resources and experience to get that higher price? Of course it does but that’s the main reason why real estate agents get paid. With all of the buyers out there looking right now, it’s easy for anybody to sell a home for less then what it’s worth. There are times to push the price and there are times to back off.
Right now is the time to push the prices and stop wasting everybody’s time listing Las Vegas homes for sale at yesterday’s prices.
