I agree with your agent.
The marker will always decide the price of your home. If you price it lower you will attract more buyers, which means more exposure and MORE OFFERS. When their are multiple offers on a property it gets buyers competitive and they will bid higher. One time I listed a condo for 300k and received no offers, we then lowered the price to 275,000 and the condo ended up selling for 305,000. Get the picture?
