Pricing Your Home For Sale
As a homeowner, you can play an important part in the timely sale of your property. When you take the following steps, you'll help Thane sell your home faster, at the best possible price.
In setting the list price for your home, you should be aware of a buyers frame of mind. Based on a list of houses for sale in your neighborhood (which can be in the form of a printed list from us, or online search results that youve found yourself), buyers will determine which houses they want to view. Consider the following pricing factors:
NOTE: Never say "asking" price, which implies you don't expect to get it.
To determine the proper list price, contact Thane and have him provide you with the following professional services:
Using Comparable Sales
Thane can furnish data on sale figures for those "comps", and analyze them for a suggested listing price. The decision about how much to ask, though, is always yours. The list of comparable sales we bring to you, along with data about other houses in your neighborhood presently on the market, is used for a "Comparative Market Analysis (CMA)." To help in estimating a possible sale price for your house, the analysis will also include data on nearby houses that failed to sell in the past few months, along with their list prices.
This CMA differs from a formal appraisal in several ways. One major difference is that an appraisal will be based only on past sales. In addition, an appraisal is done for a fee while the CMA is provided by us and may include properties currently listed for sale and those currently pending sale.
In the normal home sale, a CMA is probably enough to let you set a proper price. A formal written appraisal (which may cost a few hundred dollars) can be useful if you have unique property, if there hasn't been much activity in your area recently, if co-owners disagree about price, and any other circumstance that makes it difficult to put a value on your home.
