I think this is a really good article & synopsis to read. I hear agents/realtors say both sides, but the key here isn’t a bigger price, it’s a quicker sale.
Quicker sale means quicker access to the equity of a property, which in time value of money means greater return on investment. For a house you live in, return on investment really means very little to most. But if you think of it in a strict sense of money, and time value, and drive decisions that way, well………lets just say things take on a much different light in most cases.
Said another way, biggest price doesn’t always means best deal!
