Selling a Home

Our Home Seller's Guide brings you up to speed and makes you the expert:  2019 Selling Guide

If you are thinking of selling your home, chances are you want to make the most of the sale and enjoy a smooth transaction. We use a proven home selling strategy, backed by market research, to net you more money than the methods of traditional agents. We're here to help answer any question you have about the process and give you the best opportunity to sell your home for top dollar and on time. Call or email us today to discuss your situation. You can also schedule a Free Home Evaluation Report to include recent sales history in your area, average price per square foot, other key indicators along with the current Market Value for your home. Stop guessing.

In setting the list price for your home, you should be aware of 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 will determine which houses they want to view. Consider the following pricing factors:

  • If you set the price too high, your house won’t be picked for viewing, even though it may be much nicer than others in the area. You may have told your REALTOR® to "Bring me any offer. Frankly, I’d take less." But in that list of houses, yours simply looks too expensive to be considered.
  • If you price too low, you'll short-change yourself. Your house will sell promptly, yes, but before it has time to find the buyer who would have paid more.

NOTE: Never say "asking" price, which implies you don't expect to get it.

To determine the proper list price, contact me today and I'll provide you with the following professional services:

  • Furnishing comparable sales.
  • Analyzing market conditions.
  • Helping to determine offering incentives.
  • Estimating your net proceeds.

Using Comparable Sales

No matter how attractive and polished your house, buyers will be comparing its price with everything else on the market. Your best guide is a record of what the buying public has been willing to pay in the past few months for property in your neighborhood like yours.

Also, we can furnish data on sale figures for those "comps", and analyze them for a suggested listing price. The decision about how much to ask, though, is always yours. The list of comparable sales we bring to you, along with data about other houses in your neighborhood presently on the market, is used for a "Comparative Market Analysis (CMA)." To help in estimating a possible sale price for your house, the analysis will also include data on nearby houses that failed to sell in the past few months, along with their list prices.

This CMA differs from a formal appraisal in several ways. One major difference is that an appraisal will be based only on past sales. In addition, an appraisal is done for a fee while the CMA is provided by us and may include properties currently listed for sale and those currently pending sale.

In the typical home sale, a CMA is used to set an appropriate price. A formal written appraisal (which may cost a few hundred dollars) can be useful if you have unique property, if there hasn't been much activity in your area recently, or any other circumstance that makes it difficult to put a value on your home.

Setting the list price is a critical part of our strategy to attract the most qualified buyers and get you the best possible price for your home.
