Psychology of Home Selling

Every opinion and decision we make is influenced by several conscious and unconscious factors — including why we choose to purchase a home. Understanding these behaviors and using them to your advantage is a fantastic way to help increase the speed and success of your home sale. Our REALTORS® identified the following useful psychology tricks to encourage potential buyers to make a generous offer as swiftly as possible.

  • Price the Property Strategically
    Proper pricing is critical and perhaps even the most important element. Also, if there is work to be done on a property, a great price point can inspire buyers to take advantage of the deal before they miss out. When listing the home, you need to price it at an amount that is appropriate yet reasonable. Compare recently sold properties around your home and make sure your listing falls below that number to make it competitive yet more appealing. List your property with a price that avoids round numbers and ending the asking price with the number nine. Broad prices such as $150,000 or $149,000 can turn buyers off. However, a price of $151,500 or $148,600 makes the buyer believe that these specific prices were set appropriately to mirror the true value of the home.

Cedar Rapids Hiking

Our REALTORS® want you to take a hike — literally! November 17th is National Take a Hike Day, and there's no better way to celebrate than with an on-foot adventure around Cedar Rapids. There are 60,000 miles within our country's National Trail System and countless other parks, routes, and hiking paths for you to explore in all 50 states. Iowa has nearly 350 hiking trails with the longest reaching 88 miles. We're lucky to have so many great walking paths in our state, with many located around Cedar Rapids. Grab your hiking shoes, a comfortable jacket, and check out these trails on National Take a Hike Day.

  • Sac & Fox Trail — Corner of Cottage Grove Pkwy SE/E Post Rd SE., Cedar Rapids, IA 52403
    The Sac & Fox Trail is located on the eastern side of Cedar Rapids and runs for seven miles, some of which follow along the Cedar River and Indian Creek. The crushed limestone surface is easy for most walkers to transverse as you move through wooded, nature, and prairie areas. There are a few conveniently located trailheads to access the Sac & Fox Trail, including one at Indian Creek Park, Sac and Fox Trail City Park, and near the Indian Creek Nature Center. Consider walking a mile or so if you're scheduling Cedar Rapids homes for sale showings for this beautiful Sunday afternoon.
