The Most Important Strategy For Selling Your Home…

House with words setting the right price

When it is time to sell your home, you want to price it to yield as much return as possible. Pricing strategy is one of the most important elements in selling your home.
A market analysis of your home will help you determine value. This involves analyzing the current competition–other like properties currently on the market. I’ll look at properties that have already sold, to determine what people have been willing to pay for similar properties. I will also analyze properties that haven’t sold, some of which are overpriced.

The goal is to price the property accurately for the marketplace. You don’t want to leave money on the table, but you don’t want to overprice your home either. If you overprice the property, you risk having your home sit on the market. Then you may have to drop the price below what you could have received if it had been priced correctly to begin with. Upon seeing a home that is fairly priced, most motivated buyers offer full or almost full price.

When you are ready to sell, I’ll be happy to stop by for a quick view of your home. Together we will price it to sell for top dollar, in the shortest amount of time, with the least amount of inconvenience to you! Please call us at 757-466-1009 and let’s get started!
