Pricing Guidelines Setting the proper asking price for your home is the single most important factor that will determine the success or failure of your home sale The consequences of making the wrong decision are painful If your home is priced too low you could be literally giving away thousands of dollars that could have been in your pocket Price it too high and your home could sit unsold for months developing the reputation of a problem property Failure to understand market conditions and the importance of properly pricing your home can cost you thousands of dollars and cause your home to not sell Combining the latest technology and my extensive knowledge of the market I will analyze the current market conditions and assess your time requirements to identify the correct price range for your home Important Notes What you originally paid for the property does not affect its current value The amount of money you need to get from the sale 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 property is worth on the open market The value of your property is determined by what a ready willing and able buyer will pay for it on the open market and this is based upon the value of other recent closed sales of similar properties in your area

Why it s best not to overprice Couldn t we try for a couple of weeks The majority of prospect activity on a new listing occurs in the early period of marketing This happens because REALTORS maintain an inventory of active prospects that have been cultivated over time When a home is newly listed REALTORS arrange for them to see it Once this active group has seen the property showing activity decreases to only those buyers new to the market For this reason it is important that sellers present their homes in the best condition and at the best price at first exposure to the market But we have time At some percentage over market price no reasonable amount of time will produce a sale Even when priced right for the market it may require a month or more of exposure to sell They can always make an offer The wrong price attracts the wrong buyers and the right buyers won t see it Showing Activity Showings Week 1 Week 2 Week 3 Week 4
