Pricing is the most important factor in any real estate engagement.
I use my experience and the current market to help define a price range or a price with you.
But it’s you that ultimately sets the price.
Home selling can be an emotional experience. In fact, emotion is one of the main reasons for a listing to be overpriced.
Some sellers like to overprice and test the market, but the reality is, the longer you are on the market the less money you’ll get.
In fact, the first two questions I get while showing houses are:
- How long has it been on the market?
- Why are they moving?
How I Help Set Your Price
The first thing I’ll do when we work together is come to your house and see the location and condition. I may suggest some improvement items that will get you more money. And if you have things you’re looking to do to your home, I’ll give you my feedback as to whether it will affect the sales price or chances of selling.
I will do my best to keep you from making improvement and spending money if you’re not going to get a return on your investment.
The next step in the pricing process is do a market survey and analyze what’s currently on the market. I also look at what is under contract, and what has recently sold that’s similar to your property.
Closing Thought On Pricing
As a buyer’s agent, we typically have no idea why people are selling.
However, how many days a house is on the market is the information that buyers start doing the math on and they immediately think about a low-ball offer.
That’s something we want to avoid.
If you have any questions on pricing, or if you’d like to discuss selling your home, please contact me by phone or email.
I’d love to help you make the right move!
