How To Take Advantage Of A Seller’s Market In Portland For Home Selling

The success of selling your house depends on the market you’re selling into. In this article, you’ll read about how to take advantage of a seller’s market in Portland for home selling…

In a buyer’s market, there are many sellers and not many buyers. In a seller’s market, it’s the opposite – many buyers and not as many sellers. If you’re a seller in a seller’s market, you have the advantage already of having a scarce commodity that buyers want.

But just because you’re a seller in a seller’s market doesn’t mean you should just let the buyers dictate the terms. You have the advantage and you can still come out ahead.

How To Take Advantage Of A Seller’s Market In Portland For Home Selling

Advantage #1 You Can Ask A Higher Price

Following the simple rule of supply and demand, you can ask a higher price (and often get it) because buyers don’t have as many choices available to them. So the first way to take advantage of the seller’s market is to simply ask for more money.

Advantage #2 Ask For Or Remove Conditions

Price is just one component of selling a house. Another component is the conditions that are also placed on the sale – including an inspection, a site survey, repairs, or appliances that will remain in place. But these are what the buyer might ask for. As a seller, you can ask for certain conditions, too. For example, why not ask to just leave the house in as-is condition for the buyer to clean up?

Advantage #3 Generate Multiple Offers

After this, we felt comfortable and informed we agreed to have Simply Sold Homes to purchase the property and we made the decision from out of state.
