STEP 4. SET YOUR PRICE!

Consider the following questions when pricing your home:

  • What are the important selling points of your home?

  • How many comparable listings are currently on the market?

  • At what prices have comparable listings recently sold?

  • Which comparable listing in your community did not sell and why?

     

    Once the value of your home has been determined, you decide on an offering price that will achieve your goals. If you want to sell quickly, your offering price should be very near the value.

     

    Keep in mind these things about pricing:

  • Realistic pricing will help you achieve a selling maximum price in a reasonable period of time.

  • The market determines the price.

  • The cost of improvements are almost always more than the added value.

  • A home priced right from the beginning achieves the highest proceeds.

     

    What Are the Only Factors Within Your Control That Will Help Get You the Best Price Obtainable for Your Property:

  • Listing price

  • Condition of the house and grounds

  • Your personal considerations

  • Availability for showing

     

    ULTIMATELY, MARKET VALUE WILL DETERMINE THE SELLING VALUE OF YOUR PROPERTY
