Home Seller Tip - Can a home sell too quickly?

I was reading this morning about a seller who questioned his real estate agent’s recommended pricing of his about to be listed home.  This is likely a normal response to a comparative market analysis in Brevard County, Florida these days.

First of all, when selling your home, you establish the price not the real estate agent.  As a real estate agent I can show you the numbers – what is selling, what is sitting, what has expired in your area/neighborhood.

And then, with a little analysis the real market price should be apparent.   But it is you – the seller – who ultimately sets the price.

Now the real question…. Can a home sell too quickly?

A seller sets their own schedule.  Of course, if it is a short sale that is an entirely different story.

A home that sells quickly is one that is prepared properly and priced according to the market.  Where do people get the idea that a house must sit on the market 60 or 90 days to mean they were more successful?   Besides, Brevard County, Florida home prices are still in a decline.
