PRICING YOUR PROPERTY

What’s The Benefits of Pricing Right?

Your property sells faster, because it is exposed to more qualified buyers.

  • Your home doesn’t lose its “marketability”
  • The closer to market value, the higher the offers
  • A well-priced property can generate competing offers
  • Real Estate Professionals will be enthusiastic about presenting your property to buyers

Determining the Value of Your Home

The market ultimately determines the true value of your property. Before you compare your home to similar properties and establish a competitive list price, the following points should be considered:

  • Location
  • Size
  • Style
  • Condition
  • Community Amenities
  • Buyer Supply
  • Financing Options

Understanding the Factors That Can Influence Overpricing

  • Extensive renovations/hidden costs
  • Desire to purchase in a higher-priced area
  • Original cost of the home was too high
  • Lack of real market information
  • Building in “bargaining room”
  • Perceived emotional value

The Result of Overpricing

Many sellers believe that if they priced their home high initially, they can lower it later. Often, when a home is priced too high, it experiences little activity. Gradually the price will come down to market value, by that time it’s been for sale too long and some buyers will be wary and reject the property.

On occasion, the price is dropped below market value because the seller runs out of time. The property sells for less that it’s worth.
