Is the price point set by your Realtor below what you would like? Truth is that ultimately you have the final say of what you would like to price your home for. However, your agent is probably pricing your home to the market. The market being what similar homes have sold near you within the past 3 months. Give me a call/email!
List it, SOLD!
The price point has to do with neighborhood comparables. However, sometimes there are not good comps and more research must be done and specific questions should be asked: How many other homes are for sale in your community? How much have others sold for? How does your home show? Does it have features that make it stand out from the rest? How quickly are you wanting to sell?
Best of luck in your home selling adventure! :) Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions.
If your desired price and her recommended price are not too far apart, ask her to try yours for 2 -4 weeks, afterwards if there are no offers and little to no traffic, you will agree to lower the home to her price. The drawback here is that you lost the crucial 1st 4 weeks on the market.
And as the old saying go, if you price it too high, then you will be the highest bidder - and end up keeping the house.
Best wishes in selling your home.

Its a lot giving your girlfriend a sweater; if it's too big, she'll feel complimented, and if it's too small, she'll wear it!
If you price it too high, you'll never get any Offers nor feedback. If you price it too low, you'll get multiple Offers.
There is the posibility that she knows what she is doing.
