Benefits of Pricing Correctly

There are many benefits to pricing correctly, two of which are less time on market and a higher sales price when compared to the original list price. Check out these charts for a great visual representation.

For this exercise we used listings in the Mount Bethel, Timber Creek, Sope Creek and East Side Elementary Schools that feed into Walton High School because this represents the area we specialize as hyperlocal Realtors.

The data points are resale listings (excludes new construction) that went under contract from 1/1/17 – 7/31/17.
