How Long Should You List Your Naples Home?

A lot of our clients here in Naples have been wondering how long they should list their homes for. Some people believe that if they contract for a shorter listing period that an agent will work harder and sell their home faster. This is not necessarily true, and your agent has very little control over what happens in the real estate market. However, you need to give your real estate agent an adequate amount of time to get your property listed, marketed and sold.You must take into account what is happening in your local real estate market. In addition to looking at the local market, you will want to also consider your specific neighborhood.  Depending on where you are your property could sell a little faster or a little slower when compared to a similar property in a different area.  Real estate markets can be extremely local and can vary wildly from community to community.  

Determine an Agreeable Time Frame to Sell Your Property

You must take into account what is happening in your local real estate market. In addition to looking at the local market, you will want to also consider your specific neighborhood.  Depending on where you are your property could sell a little faster or a little slower when compared to a similar property in a different area.  Real estate markets can be extremely local and can vary wildly from community to community. 

If you get impatient and remove your listing, you would then have to start the entire process over again, and this will only cost you more time and money. This is why it is important to hire professionals, like The Saad Team who know and study the market, pricing, and trends every day. Know your local real estate market before you sign a listing contract. You shouldn’t expect your home to sell instantaneously, but you should have a reasonable time frame in mind so that your property does not go stale.

If you have any questions, or if you or anyone you know is looking to sell, buy, or invest in real estate, please contact the Saad Team at (239) 595-8500 or email us at sold@thesaadteam.com.
