Pricing a Property is Serious Business


 

Strategic pricing is the key to selling your home at an attractive price in an acceptable amount of time. While many brokers will gladly list your home, the reality is if it is not properly priced your home may sit on the market month after month and actually help sell competing properties.

 

At Ebby Halliday, our Associates take pricing your property very seriously. Your Ebby Associate will utilize Multiple Listing Service data to create a Competitive Market Analysis that estimates a market-value range for your home based on the recent action of buyers and sellers in your neighborhood. A few of the factors your Ebby Associate will consider when estimating your property’s market value:

 

* Successfully sold homes – Lists the selling price of recently purchased homes comparable to yours.

* Competitive properties for sale – Since they are not yet sold, the market value is undetermined, but they are important, as buyers most likely will view and compare these properties with yours.

* Pending sales – Though they have not yet closed, homes under contract are a good indicator of value in the current market.

* Failed to sell – The listed price of these homes suggests what potential buyers will not pay.
