What Price Should You Ask for Your Home?
We know that you want to receive the highest price possible. That's why we research the current market to see what the highest reasonable price is. Here are a few hints on setting the right price:
- Often, your home's value depends on recent selling prices of comparable homes in your area. After reviewing the selling prices for such homes, your list price is adjusted according to current market trends.
- Buyers often look in the price range determined by their monthly ability and down payment.
- Buyers are often very knowledgeable in their price range and then purchase by comparison. Unreasonable asking prices are an immediate turn-off.
- Inviting a potential Buyer to make an offer shows that you are willing to bargain. But if your asking price is outrageous, the Buyer's offer will most likely be unreasonable as well.
- It's necessary to offer competitive pricing, terms, and conditions in your area. This will help you sell faster and realize your home's full market value.
Marketing Your Listing
There are three factors that determine if your home is a marketable listing. They are price, financing and time.
Price - If your home is priced too high, you must be willing to wait much longer for it to sell. Either it will take that much longer to find someone willing to pay more than the home is worth, or the market will eventually catch up to the "asking price" of the home through inflation.
After deciding on a price, try the old retail trick - drop the number down a bit. Instead of placing the listing at $500,000 consider dropping it down to $499,990.
Financing - You may not realize it, but the financing abilities of your Buyer can have a tremendous impact on the success of selling your home. Try to offer very attractive financing options. Consider carrying the financing yourself at a below-market interest rate or preparing your home for government financing. This could open the door for many Buyers that otherwise wouldn't even consider buying your home.
Time - If time is important to you, then you must be willing to look at options like owner financing or lowering the price.
