Information for Sellers

How many offers are you getting on your typical house?

The amount of activity a home sees depends on how many other houses are on the market in that neighborhood. If a home is priced properly it is not uncommon to see bidding wars that push the selling price above the listed.

What does a seller need to know if they put their home on the market today?

We at the Kelly Fischer Team are going to give you an honest opinion on what we can price your home for. We want to help our sellers understand the market realistically and know what a reasonable asking price is. Our plan is to list your home at an aggressive but realistic price that will sell in less than 60 days.

Sellers also need to always have their home in showing condition. Sometimes that requires a new coat of paint or planting some flowers; everything we suggest is to help you get the best sale. It’s the motivated and cooperative sellers who get their homes sold fast and at great prices.

Market Update June 2013

The market right now for Vero Beach is amazing. The biggest challenge we are having is there aren’t enough quality homes on the market for the number of buyers we are working with.

Last year, at this time, the market was more challenging for sellers; they grew increasingly frustrated. We did eventually get their homes sold, but the number of days their properties were on the market was much more and the percentage of the asking price was lower.

Now, though, any property that is in a good area, good condition and is properly priced (or even sometimes higher than market value) is selling really quickly. 

More and more buyers now are becoming frustrated because there is a lack of choices for them.  They are limited in their search.

Since last year, there has been a 10% jump in prices in the Vero Beach market, which is significant. Fortunately, interest rates have remained low to act as a buffer for the price increase. 

Since last year, the market has shifted more toward a sellers’ market.
