How do You Determine Your Asking Price?
Pricing your home properly is the most crucial step in preparing your home for the market and ensuring it’s sale. Too high and you drive buyers away and your home will sit on the market for far longer, and any offer you do receive will be far lower than what you are asking. Too low and you could leave “thousands of dollars on the table.” It is critical that you work closely with your realtor and listen to their advice in this regard. We all want you to receive as high a price for your property as possible, but remember that your price has to be reasonable, and reflect the comparable properties that have recently sold in order to be successful.
We’re experts at creating a pricing strategy that will pique the interest of qualified buyers – and set the stage to encourage the highest sale price possible. We’re specialists in the local market and know what properties like yours sell for, and we will strive to make sure we choose the best price to help you obtain as much money for your home as possible.
We begin by getting to know your property and all its desirable features. Then we make some calculations to determine its Current Market Value. That value is based in large part on what similar houses in the area have sold for recently.
Keep in mind that buyers won’t pay for the sentimental value you place on your house, but the special features such as hardwood floors, a newly renovated kitchen or bathroom, or a beautiful backyard patio can have an impact on how quickly a property sells and for what price. We’ll help you understand all the factors that go into setting the list price, and ensuring it is just right for the marketplace and your goals.
