Why You Shouldn’t Overprice Your Home

December 22, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

Why You Shouldn’t Overprice Your HomeThe average homebuyer is going to value their house far above what its actual worth is. This is due to the many emotional attachments that they have with that home. It isn’t common for someone to overvalue their house but when they actually list it on the market, chances are that it’ll be looked at as overpriced. If you want to avoid all of the pitfalls of pricing your home to high, here are some tips that will help you out.

No Deal

One of the problems with overvaluing your house is that most buyers aren’t going to pay with cash, they’re going to need a mortgage to afford it. In order for them to receive that mortgage, the house can’t be priced over what the current market value is. Banks and lenders are becoming pickier over who they approve for a mortgage. Even if there is an agreement between you and the buyer, there is a high chance that it won’t follow through because the bank won’t approve it.


One of the worst things that can happen to a home is for it to sit on the market without any bids. In most cases, sellers that overvalue their home will risk it languishing for weeks, or worse months. Once a buyer sees that a home has been listed on the market for months, they’re going to throw a bunch of lowball offers at you, insisting that you’re going to need the home taken off sooner or later. You can go for the home run and risk the amount that you’re going to receive, or you can play it safe and come out with, still, a positive gain.
