Reason why I’m changing is because I want to give more to the buyer’s agent rather than to the listing agent or use that to drop the price itself. It gives me more options.
I see no point in giving too much to the listing side so that’s why I’m changing agents. It gives me a bit more leeway when buyers most likely try to nego. I plan on relisting at a new lower price shortly.
Another thing is that zillow and fairfax websites don’t update so quick so it does not list homes that are sold in the last 30 days or so.
There’s also the issue of new homes with various different prices and therefore 2005 built homes have to be priced accordingly lower but don’t know by how much.
It’s hard to compare apples to apples in the lorton neighborhood, especially when homes have different designs, interior upgrades, and built from a different year, etc…
At any rate, I think I’ll be relisting at $80k below its appraised value, then if buyers come an offer or haggle, I’ll have some room to give em what they want and settle at my absolute rock bottom price.
