Get the Right Price for Your Home

More Savvy Tips

When you put your home up for sale, your real estate agent is there to help you set the right price for the property. A thorough agent will analyze comparable homes sold in your area, taking into account the condition, square footage, lot size, parking, public transportation and even the school district. Many factors go into determining the appropriate selling price.

Your home has only one chance to make a first impression.  That’s why a fresh coat of paint inside and out, staging, and sprucing the front and back yards are important. The first three weeks the property is listed are critical because that’s when your house will be getting maximum exposure through ads and open houses. If the home isn’t generating interest, you and your agent should reassess the situation. One option is to lower the price.  Another is to offer a credit back to buyer.
