Trulia pricing tip for sellers

Today, most buyers are not in a high state of urgency to buy given the long-term, high affordability of homes and interest rates… except when they have an urgent personal reason for moving, like relocating for work.

All of real estate is hyperlocal, so it’s important to understand how motivated buyers are in your local market before you set your list price.

Price Reduction Map

Trulia’s new, interactive Price Reduction Map offers clues about the critical indicators of buyer and seller motivations.  Just a click on the map will provide information in your home’s town and zip code including:

  • How many homes in your target property’s area have had at least one price reduction, and,
  • How likely a home is to have multiple price reductions.

The higher numbers indicate a stronger buyer’s market, which gives more bargaining power to buyers.

And if you’re the seller, the higher these numbers are for your area, the lower you may need to price your home to be successful at getting it sold.

Bellevue price reductions

The Eastside zip code 98008 has the lowest number of days before a price reduction for all of Bellevue at 39, with the average reduction at 5%, and the odds of a second reduction at 30%. In other words, according to Trulia’s calculations, one out of three homes in this zip code will have more than one price reduction.
