Is Your Price Selling The Neighbor’s House?

Posted by Jody Deeds on January 27, 2008

Preparing to sell your home takes some planning and expert advice, especially when it comes to setting the price.

You’ll find everyone becomes an expert and wants to offer their opinion on the price…neighbors, family, co-workers, etc.  And…while all of these individuals have good intentions and only want to help, it is crucial that you take into account all factors involved:  market conditions, similar style homes that have sold in your area, your homes currently on the market, is it a buyer’s market or seller’s market, condition of your home, how fast homes are selling, terms and incentives, etc.

Avoid testing the market!  Set a realistic price based on the facts involved.  Pricing too high will only help sell competing homes in the area and you’ll lose your initial rush of good qualified potential buyers.  The longer a home stays on the market, the lower the offers and less negotiating power there will be for you. 

How much you paid for the home and how much you want to profit, are important to you, these factors do not affect the market value of your home and what Buyer’s are willing to pay.
