In setting the list price for your home, you should be aware of a buyer’s 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 you’ve 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.

Using Comparable Sales
No matter how attractive and polished your house, buyers will be comparing its price with everything else on the market. Your best guide is a record of what the buying public has been willing to pay in the past few months for property in your neighborhood like yours.
We are the only brokerage in the area that will prepare an appraisal of your house in order to determine with close proximity the true value of your house. Also I can furnish data on sale figures for those "comps", the completed appraisal and analyze them for a suggested listing price. The decision about how much to ask, though, is always yours. The list of comparable sales and appraisal I 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.
The appraisal we provide is prepared by me, and is included at no cost to you as part of the listing process.
