Good Morning!

Your first step is to partner with a licensed real estate agent. If you can get a referral from someone you know, that is a great way to start. Don't be afraid to interview more than one realtor to list your home. You should feel comfortable with your realtor and trust that they are working in your best interest.

They should furnish you with a Comparable Market Analysis (CMA) on your home, in order to assist you in pricing your home for sale. The CMA uses other homes in your area (I try to stay within a mile if possible) that have sold recently (within the last 6 months, also if possible) that are within a range of other specifications of your home (i.e.; year built, square footage, bedrooms/baths, pool/no pool, garage, etc.). Your realtor should also share with you how your home will be marketed, assistance in staging your home for sale and "listen" to you about your expectations.

It is up to you to set an appointment with a realtor and I would certainly welcome an opportunity to present to you a CMA on your home and discuss how I would market and work with you toward your goals.

I hope this has been helpful and I look forward to speaking with you further. You can reach me either by text or call at 321-292-9222 or via email at smith.anne1112@gmail.com

Your best bet would be to ask a reputable Realtor in your area to stop by and do a complete and thorough Market Analysis.

The emphasis should be on what homes like yours have recently sold for. Find out what the average price per square foot is for recently sold homes and then take that figure and multiply it against the number of square feet YOUR home has in order to get a baseline on pricing.

From there you adjust up and down for things such as the size of property, condition, amenities, extras, and other stuff that you think would make your home more or less valuable than other homes in the area.

Give yourself a pep talk before you do and make a commitment to be brutally honest about pricing. We all tend to emphasize the great things about our own homes when planning on selling in order to trick ourselves into thinking that our home is worth more than it really is. The worst part of this is that we don't KNOW that it's not worth that much because we tend to believe what we WANT to believe. Commit to going with what the data says and err on the side of caution.

That being said, the "side of caution" is a truly a little more aggressive in most areas right now with the way prices have been rising.
