If your house is not priced correctly, your house will not sell. The house will not get any offers and no agents or buyers will even walk through. That is why it is important to price your house competitively so that you get maximum exposure. When you price your house aggressively, you will be able to sell it in any market regardless what the economy is doing. If the price is right, your home will get people to “Come on Down” as commonly referred to on the show.
