Important Considerations for Pricing Your Home

Real Estate

1When it’s time to sell your property, you want to get the best price you can for it. You’ve put a lot of time and money into your home and as your biggest asset, the greater the return the better the venture. While you may want to get the maximum sale price possible, it’s important to price your home well so it will also sell quickly.

 You’ve probably heard it before, but it’s worth repeating. The best way to feel confident in the price you set for your home is to work with an experienced Realtor®. Yes, you should get an appraisal done and review your property tax valuation for a starting point on pricing your home. But there’s more to determining a good, attractive price for buyers, which you’ll also be happy with. This is where hiring a Realtor® comes in.

 As a Realtor®, I have access to up-to-date market information, including the latest in sales figures for homes comparable to one another. I watch the market for selling and buying trends and pay close attention to which neighborhoods are appreciating in value. I take all this information apply my experience to help guide my clients towards understanding what price range is most likely to result in a successful, efficient sale.
