Pricing your home in todays economy

March 13, 2013 3:05 pm

Pricing your home to make it attractive to potential buyers and get you the return on your investment is a combination of art and science. As your real estate professional I can get the selling data on comparable homes in your area but there are other tangible and intangible things to consider when you set a price on your home.

  • Start with a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) to find out what similar homes in your area are selling for.
  • Appliances and fixtures that stay with the home and those that you plan to take with you.
  • The economic conditions in your area.
  • The supply and demand conditions in the real estate market in your area.
  • Note amenities your home has that others in your area don't.
  • Evaluate the impact of your homes amenities. These could be negative, positive or neutral, a pool may be nice to have but there are maintenance and insurance issues that may concern potential buyers.
  • Note amenities of your neighborhood and association fees to pay for these amenities.
  • Area school rankings.
  • Proximity to power lines or other utilities that may concern potential buyers.
  • Any easements or right-of-ways on your property.
  • The overall condition of your home and any repair or replacement issues.

There are probably unique features of your home that aren't noted above so you'll want to share them with me so that I can make sure that the asking price reflects this.

If you have questions or need help with any aspect of selling your home, please let us know. Remember, we work for you.
