Price Drop vs. Rate Drop: $750,000 Sales Price

Published 1 month ago

These higher interest rates will impact buyers' qualifications if you have not noticed. The higher rates are also beginning the "price drops " trend, which sellers use to help attract affordable housing for buyers.

But, most sellers don't know or can show the actual numbers on how that impacts buyers. This inability to show the numbers and knowledge of how dropping the rates has a more significant impact on a buyer's payment than lowering a sales price could ever have.

Price vs. Rate -

Did you know, and I can show you through this side-by-side comparison, how a PRICE DROP of 50k has the same benefits as a much smaller SBD to a buyer's payment? So, if that is the case, then we can leave more money on the seller's net sheet vs. taking 50k off of it to address affordability issues with buyers.

Seller Buy Down -

I wanted to show you how an SBD works and how both the Buyer & Seller can benefit when the SBD + is structured within a purchase transaction. ( videos below )

Marketing Your Property -

Now that you understand how powerful a tool it is to reduce rate vs. price with the Seller Buy Down, then let's market your property with a custom SBD Video from me so that we can spread and help affordability to all buyers.
