If you’ve decided to lower the price of your home, by how much do you reduce it? The answer depends.
If you’re in a non-luxury price range, a drop of about $5,000 is a good place to start. This is significant enough to attract buyers’ attention. Anything less than that won’t make much of a difference. Remember, though, to make sure the price drop lands the new price between the major $25,000 price points ($525,000, $550,000, $575,000, etc.).
If you’re in a luxury price range (upwards of $1 million and $2 million), your price drop should be $25,000, $50,000, $75,000, or even $100,000. This may seem like a lot, but the alternative—sitting on the market for even longer, waiting for a buyer who will probably make a lowball offer—is worse. It’s better to be preemptive and make a price reduction now so buyers see the value and don’t come in even lower.
