When I speak with sellers about maximizing their profit potential when home selling, I am serious about the maximum profit potential. So analytical about it. Because I feel as though it is my job to get my sellers the highest price possible. To do anything less, to me, is not providing full service.
Every so often I run across a seller who doesn't care one way or the other about extra proceeds, but not very often. Most sellers want every bit of equity they can obtain. Usually I'm within a reasonable range or so of other agent's estimates, but not on this particular home in Carmichael.
All three of the other agents were $100,000+ low. My sellers kept asking me why. This wasn't supposed to happen, they said. I don't know, honestly. I just know I was right.
