When selling a home, understanding a little bit about home buyer psychology can help you move your home more quickly. 

After all, what people perceive helps define how they act.

A recent article from RealEstateJournal.com listed techniques home sellers can use to attract more offers from buyers. 

The tips included:

  1. Number Play: $299,999 seems far less expensive than $300,000
  2. Connotation: Precise numbers indicate value; Round numbers indicate prestige
  3. Simpicity: If you drop the price, make the math easy for the buyer so the savings are obvious

Curiously absent from the piece, however, is the #1 home selling tip that every good real estate agent knows:

To sell your home quickly, price it right.

A “good buy” speaks for itself — no psychology required.
