It sounds like you have a great home! Being located in Howard is a huge plus too!!
The best way to get the "correct" price for your home is to talk to a professional in your area. They will do a market analysis on your home and explain to you why they would price your home accordingly. Right now the number one factor on pricing your home correctly is looking at your "competition". Again a competent agent can review them with you.
I have a great contact in your area and would recommend that you give her a call and just ask her some questions or have her take a look at your home.

Her name is Jill Simon and she can be reached at 920-639-4865 or at jsimon@coldwellhomes.com

She is a top producer in your area and would be a great resource for you!!

Good luck with your sale!!

The only price that matters is what a ready, willing and able buyer will spend. A professional market analysis is needed on your home to help you determine a list price to draw out the ready, willing and able buyers. A market analysis primarily looks at comparable homes not only on your street but within a reasonable proximity. A sampling of current homes for sale and those that have recently sold that are similar to yours primarily in style, age and square footage. It's not an exact science which is why a market analysis should be done by an agent with experience in selling homes in your area and knows the market. Because pricing is subjective, sellers should never become "married" to their list price. It's a number used to help draw out potential qualified buyers. Again, the only price that matters is what a ready, willing and able buyer will spend for your home.
