Pricing Your Home Properly

The number one reason a home sells is for the price.   How can pricing come into play when selling your home?

1)  Compare other homes in the neighborhood by gathering data on recent homes sold generally in the last 90 to 180 days.

2)  Consider Short sales and Foreclosures when pricing.  Sometimes these are sold below market value but can bring comparable prices down.

3)  Negotiate with Decisiveness.  Buyers are not interested in  negotiations where talks go back and forth.    They are more savvy and willing to walk away if things get to picky.

4)  If your house is not selling it could be the price so know when to drop the price.   Buyers will not even look and even loose interest if the price is too high.

Remember your first 30 days on the market are the most critical.  That is when you home gets the "most" attention because it is a new listing.  So if you have it priced very competitively and it is a great house, you may command list price.  I have seen it happen.
