Home Buyer, R.M.R. Industrial Park, Laredo, TX
Many factors can enter the "pricing equation" for a seller. One of the first things that is stressed to a seller by their agent is comparative pricing. A seller has to be mindful and kept up to date on listings that come on the market or are selling that would be comparable to his/her own. That being said, the two properties you are referring to may differ on condition, floor plan, amenities or the amount of finished space. Also, in the recent past, we have seen many sellers that desire to move but must price their home higher because of what is owed on it. There are possible remedies for this problem but that's another set of questions. The bottom line is look at them both with a professional that can assist you in establishing each one's value to you, the buyer. The more you see the more you get a sense of true market value for you.
