Pricing Your Home For Sale

If you are selling your home, you want the best possible price and terms. Several factors will determine how much you will sell your home for. The idea is to get the maximum price and the best terms during the window of time when your home is being marketed. My goal is to get you where you need to be ON TIME!

There are several ways to gather information about the value of your home. The most convenient way to do this is for us to talk about your property. I will prepare a comparable market analysis showing the prices of recently sold homes that are comparable to yours and the prices of comparable homes on the market.

All real estate transactions are different, and because of this you should do as much as you can to prepare your home for sale, I am here to assist you with the process.

Pricing your home to sellIn considering home values, several factors come into play:

The value of your home relates to local sales prices. The same home located elsewhere would likely have a different value.

Sales price is a product of supply and demand. If you live in a community with an expanding job base, a growing population, and a limited housing supply, prices will likely rise. If the local community is losing jobs and people are moving out, then prices will likely drop or stay the same. The personal situation of the seller is also a factor. If you need to move quickly, you will have less leverage in the marketplace. If you have no incentive to sell quickly, you may have more leverage.

Sales price is not based on how much money you need to purchase your next home.

I pride myself in keeping a close eye on the market. Statistics are gathered and analyzed on a regular basis. I can tell you how long it is taking to sell properties in your price range. You will receive information about the market conditions and additional information about how the location of your property, condition, and other pertinent factors will affect the price of your home. Based on that information, you will be able to make an educated decision about pricing your home.
