This home valuation is free from real estate professionals and more helpful than automated online offerings. It provides detailed information on each house sold in your area over the last six months, along with the final sale price. It also includes the specifics of all the houses for sale in your area, including the asking price. These homes are your competition. The real estate professional will also answer any questions and help you price your home realistically.
Along with an understanding of how the worth of a home is determined, the current market must be considered. By utilizing a professional real estate agent (like me), you can rely on proven expertise to market your home at the best listing price. I will happily provide you with a Comparative Market Analysis.
The Second Step – Selling Your Home for More
Prior discussion showed that there is no calculable certainty in setting the value of a home. There can be wide differences between the seller’s assessed price, the asking or listing price (market value), and the price at which the home sells (sale price). Let’s turn to what the homeowner/seller can do to elicit offers at the listing price, or even above, in a competitive market.
The seller’s time, effort and investment are the most important parts of the process. The seller’s willingness to adequately prepare the home for presentation by improvising, freshening, landscaping, and generally making the home pristine – and to live in that presentation-readiness state for the time it takes to sell the property – will greatly affect both the sale period as well as the price at which the home sells.
