The value of your home is ultimately set by the amount of money a buyer is willing to pay for it at any given time. We will work together to develop a pricing strategy based on my professional knowledge of current market conditions. While it is natural to start with an idea of your goals and timing, we will also consider all comparable currently listed properties, recent sales activity and average days on market. This gives us a better footing to prepare, market, sell and ultimately close your transaction.
On Average… Buyers Inspect 12 homes before deciding. That means 11 other homes are competing agains yours!
HERE ARE SOME POINTS TO CONSIDER:
- Time. Time is not on your side when it comes to real estate. Although many variables influence the sale, time is the biggest factor in determining how much you will net on the sale of your home. The longer a house stays on the market, the less likely it is to sell at or close to the original asking price. So, if your goal is to obtain top dollar, consider a price that will attract multiple buyers. This strategy is quite effective and often results in multiple competing offers.
- Value vs. Cost. It’s important that you not confuse personal value with market value – in other words, how much you value your home is not as important as what buyers are willing to pay for it. Don’t overestimate the value of improvements you have made when calculating your price, because buyers may not share your taste or would not have spent that much for that particular upgrade. EX: A seller who chooses to pay for level 5 granite upgrade may overspend as most buyer, in that particular price range of home, would only pay for level 2 or 3 granite.
