The price is the first thing buyers notice about your property. If you set your price too high, then the chance of alienating buyers is higher. You want your house to be taken seriously, and the asking price reflects how serious you are about selling your home.
Several factors will contribute to your final decision. First, you should compare your house to others that are in the market. If you use an agent, he/she will provide you with a CMA (Comparative Market Analysis). The CMA will reflect the following:
houses in your price range and area that were sold within the last half-year
asking and selling prices of houses
current inventory of houses on the market
features of each house on the market
From the CMA, you will learn the difference between the asking price and selling price for all homes sold, the condition of the market, and other houses comparable to yours.
Also, try to find out what types of houses are selling and see if it applies to your area. Buyers follow trends, and these trends can help you set your price.
Always be realistic. Understand and set your price to reflect the current market situation.
“Tanya Ruff is an excellent agent. She came recommended by a friend and I would recommend her in the future. She worked non-stop to keep me informed about the process. She took a lot of questions that I had and answered them promptly. Please let me know if I can write any more references for your company or her.”Thomas & Yuan Kisio
“Tanya Ruff was an absolute dream to work with and I consider her a new friend. She was very professional, honest and helpful to us during this process. We had a very bad experience in the past when trying to sell our house and Tanya made every effort to comfort us and relieve us of any fears/concerns. I hope we are here to stay, but I will definitely use and recommend Tanya in the future. Tanya (also) helped us look at a few properties and her knowledge and expertise was obvious. She helped us find our dream house we hope to live in for many years. She helped us list our house and buy a new house within 30 days of looking at the first property!! She is forever our hero and we are forever grateful!”Randy & Britany Schmidt
