Pricing is everything when it comes to listing your house, and by all means this is something to leave to the professionals who do thise each and every day for a living!
Pricing Guidelines for your House
•what you paid originally for the property does not affect its value
•the amount of money you need to get from the sale of your home does not affect its value
•what you think it should be worth has no effect on its value
•what another Real Estate Agent says your property is worth does not affect its value
•An appraisal does not always indicate what your home is worth on the market as there are different types of appraisals.
After all, if you have picked me, and I will be more then capable to handle this process for you and we can work together to come up with a price that will work for everyone involved!
A good rule of thumb is that home priced more than 5% over market value WONT SELL. That’s because a buyer who feels your home is over priced will more readily buy “ more house” some where else for the same money
The value of your property is determined by what a ready, willing and able buyer will pay for it on the open Market, which will be based upon the value of other recent closed sales in the area.
BUYERS DETERMINE MARKET VALUE!!!!!
***DO NOT automatically list with the agent that gives you the highest price.
A Real Estate Agent has no control over the Market Conditions, only their Marketing Plan. Never Select a Agent based on the price they promise. Select an Agent based on criteria about their company, there sales track record, experience, and the services they provide to you!
True professionals will give you truthful feedback and accurate information so you can price to sell in this market. If an agent just takes your price and offers no information then chances are it will cost you in the long run! You may very well lose money.
When it comes to pricing its a difficult thing when you have an emotional attachment as the home owner. I try to see it from the business prospective of market, area and years experience.
We should sit and talk sometime. It doesn’t cost you anything, and nothing ventured, nothing gained!
Looking forward to hearing from you and answering your questions.
