The first question I'm asked from a seller is undoubtedly, "How much is my home worth?" Worth could greatly differ from value which could also differ from listing price. Call or e-mail me and I am happy to explain the differences from a purely real estate perspective; however, this little introduction to selling covers the very basic parameters for setting the listing price .
For In setting the listing price for your home, it's a good idea to start off being in a buyer’s frame of mind. Based on a list of houses for sale in your neighborhood (which can be in the form of a printed list from us, or online search results that you’ve found yourself), buyers determine which houses they want to view. Consider the following pricing factors:
NOTE: Never say "asking" price, which implies you don't expect to get it.
Do I set the list price at the average price per square foot as neighbors?
Do I set it just barely above to remain part of the viewing equation but numerically let buyers know your home is valued as more?
Do I set it just barely below to drive traffic so that all buyers want to see your house and make offers?
There is a specific method I utilize that is tailored to each and every property, neighborhood, housing market, timing and the marketing and pre-marketing strategy of the property. To determine the proper listing price of your house, contact me for a free consultation and transparent conversation.
