Sellers Enjoy Upper Hand in Roswell Real Estate

stage your front door to sell your house

We recently discussed the lack of homes for sale in Roswell and other north Atlanta areas, and how the disparity in supply and demand for north Atlanta real estate has created a seller’s market. Read on to find out what this situation means for those trying to sell their homes in Alpharetta and Roswell.

It’s a seller’s market- but don’t get carried away

Right now, sellers do have the upper hand in the Fulton County real estate market. The lack of inventory means that buyers are having to compete, even offering well over the asking price. Yet despite having the upper hand in north Atlanta home sales, sellers need to be careful not to abuse the situation.

While multiple offers may be rolling in, beware of exploiting potential buyers too much. A competitive market doesn’t mean that sellers should be completely unwilling to make repairs or give other concessions. It may be a seller’s market at the moment, most buyers are not going to overpay for these properties. If you try to play buyers against each other or refuse to negotiate, you could end up missing a sale. There’s nothing more frustrating than receiving multiple offers on your home, only to lose out completely by frustrating and offending all of your potential buyers.
