Don't Let Your Listing Go Cold

The number of days your home spends on the market is more important than you might think. I’ll go over why you should avoid letting your listing go cold today.

When you’re selling your house or buying a new one, why do days on market even matter?

Just like food at a restaurant, you don’t want a house sitting around too long. The first 24 hours of a house listing are the most important. In fact, if you don’t get any showings within 72 hours, something has caused buyers to overlook your property. 

The first 24 hours of a house listing are the most important.

There are exceptions, such as a home that is further out or more expensive. However, if you have a home in the average price range in Denver, about $500,000, and you’re on the market for more than three days without any showings, something went wrong and you’re listing has gone cold. 

Days on market matter for the same reason the time it takes to get your food at a restaurant matter. If it get’s cold, you don’t want it. 

In order to sell your home successfully you need to price it correctly, show it properly, and market it aggressively. In fact, I suggest you price your home a little under market value, creating a buzz and a demand for your home. 

At the end of the day, people will think something is wrong with your house if it sits on the market for too long and goes through a bunch of price reductions. 

If you have any other questions, please feel free to give me a call or send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you!
