4. Check Out Your Competition On The Web And In Person

Today, so much real estate information is available on the Internet, and it’s prudent to head there to learn about other competing homes in your area and price range, and to review recent sales. You can visit websites like Realtor.com for this information, and you also may find that many Agent websites can be helpful. Click HERE for mine!

It’s important to be realistic about how your home compares to the others in the market. Often, as a homeowner, you have invested a lot of time and money into your Property, and you can be inclined to inflate the value of your home. If you price your home significantly above other comparable homes on the market, Buyers and Agents will pass over your home to view other homes that represent a better value, and you will get few showings and low offers.

5. Your Tax Assessment And The Market Value Of Your Home

Tax assessments are based on a number of criteria that may not be related to property values, so they often do not reflect the value of your home. Comparable recent sales are a much more reliable indicator of value.

6. Price Your Home To Reflect Your Desired Selling Timeline  

Your home’s price will often determine how long it will take to sell, and you can speed up the process with a more aggressive price. If you want to sell quickly, then setting an attractive price will often motivate ready and willing Buyers to make an offer. A lower price may also put you in a position to be firm in negotiations, especially if more than one Buyer has interest. A talented and skilled Realtor can help you get the most from that situation.

7. Choose Your Agent Wisely

All Agents are not Realtors®, and all Realtors® are not the same! A great Realtor® can be your best asset when selling your home, and their market knowledge, industry relationships and negotiating skills can really impact your final sales price!

It’s smart to choose an Agent with experience with homes like yours, and the seasoning that comes from working in the business over time. This is not the time to look for the “lowest bidder” to market and sell your most valuable asset. and a great Agent knows that it’s not just about a real estate transaction.
