Again today, I saw another Spring TX home that is being advertised as VERY MOTIVATED SELLER. But what exactly is a very motivated seller? Is a motivated seller a seller that wants to sell? And if that is the definition aren’t the majority of sellers motivated?
I can not say that all sellers are motivated. Because there are those sellers that say “if I can get the price I want for my home I will sell it and if I can’t I won’t”. Its easy to spot the homes with the non-motivated sellers. They are the overpriced and non-staged homes.

Overpriced and non-staged homes help my buyers see the value in comparable Spring Texas homes. My buyers will make a decision quicker because they don’t want their choices to be limited to only the overpriced homes.
What benefit does the seller derive from having their home advertised as VERY MOTIVATED SELLER? Absolutely Nothing. Instead it is a detriment. Potential buyers believe that a very motivated seller is in a bad financial position which translates into buyers writing low offers. Whether that is the situation or not, it does not matter because that is what buyers believe.
These strategies will take your home from For Sale to SOLD.

We lived in the area for about 3 years before taking the house-hunting plunge and truly could not have chosen a better realtor to work with. Jill is professional and patient, she is an incredible resource who is 100% there for her clients at all times. We had a lot of questions and didn't want to pay any closing costs or prepaid costs out of pocket - Jill is a Master Certified Negotiation Expert and it SHOWS. We got exactly what we wanted at the price we wanted AND had several bonuses thrown in, including appliances and gutters. She was there for inspections/walk-throughs and kept in contact with our builder's salesperson as well. If you want a strong realtor who is also pleasant to work with (which I've learned is rare), then Jill is the realtor for you!! read less
