Home Seller Tip – Skip the bonus when pricing your home

In a buyer's market pricing is the main only factor when selling your home.  The Brevard County, Florida real estate competition is keen whether you are in Viera, Melbourne or Merritt Island.

There are just more sellers than buyers so you have to price your home appropriately for its condition and your circumstances.

And offering a real estate agent a bonus to bring a full price offer is not something I would recommend.

First of all, I have never met a real estate agent who was primarily motivated by a bonus at the expense of assisting their buyer get the best deal possible!    I wonder if  listing agents really believe the offer of a bonus will be the thing that brings the offer....

As for me and my buyer customers I say anything except a good (reasonable, let's talk) offering price is really not very productive.

If you are a seller and want to offer a bonus, make it a seller contribution to closing costs or, better yet, just reduce the list price a bit!
