I love Las Vegas. I love the lights, the sounds, the old school vibe of the Frank Sinatra era…but let’s face it, what I really love, is the gambling. While I truly enjoy the adrenaline rush of placing a large wager at Mrs Casino, I’m often risk averse in my daily life and when it comes to real estate, you need to consider your comfort level and how much risk you’re willing to take. Gambling can be a lot of fun, but taking those kinds of risks when selling your home can be dangerous.
You might love gambling in Vegas or you might be someone who could never put five dollars down, we’re all different when it comes to wagering. Question is, would you gamble with the sale of your own home?
Selling Your Home – Las Vegas Style
Most of you are probably shaking your head and saying “no way!” Yet sellers do it all the time. They put their wager down and stand their ground, waiting for the dealer to hand them a buyer, even though the odds are stacked against them. Despite the best study of oddsmakers and statisticians, they hold out for the big score and the jackpot of a lifetime.
Even when the odds are stacked in the buyers’ favor and we’re in what’s known as a buyer’s market, sellers sometimes play the game like they’ve got a sure bet and can win the jackpot. The real estate market needs to be read just like the stone cold look on a champion poker player’s face.
Unlike that unbreakable stare from behind mirrored sunglasses though, the San Antonio real estate market isn’t as stony and cold. You can crack the code with the right information and real estate agent by your side. When selling your home, do you want to go all-in on a blind hand or bet big with the knowledge and information of the market stacking the odds in your favor?
