What I like to do, is to take the homeowner with me to see other listings what are on the market that would be their competition.. If you list too high, all you will be doing is helping to sell the other properties. The other important part is the marketing of your property. I would love to sit down with you and answer all of your questions and let you know how I would sell you house.
Disclosure: When one agent refers another, he usually takes a 25% cut of the commission that ultimately gets paid. So I think it is important that when an agent offers to refer someone to an "excellent" agent, he should disclose that he's getting handsome compensation for basically doing nothing.
Not that there's anything wrong with it. But it is seldom disclosed adequately. I think if you are making money in a transaction, you should disclose it right up front so the motivations and relationships are crystal clear.
With that said, to answer the OP, I'd be delighted to help. I am a licensed appraiser as well as a Realtor. The first step is to establish a realistic value on your property, and I am highly trained and experienced in doing just that. So contact me via my website if you would like to have me out for a look.
Also what Don suggested is correct. You want several opinions and you want to review several marketing programs to make an informed decision. There is no magical marketing program, just hard work on the part of your agent to expose your property to its fullest potential through both the Internet and conventional means.
Good luck and call if you need help!
Your best bet is to work with an experienced local agent from RE/MAX who is familiar with your neighborhood. I can refer you to a top agent in your area to obtain a comparative market evaluation of your home. He/she can then advise you on a realistic listing price and make suggestions as to how to best prepare your home for showings. Email me with your contact information: firstname.lastname@example.org.
