competent Realtor can provide a Comparative Market Analysis to give you an
indication of what today’s Buyers are willing to pay for a home such as
yours. It compares the market
activity of homes similar to yours in your neighbourhood.
Those that have recently sold represent what Buyers are willing to
pay. The homes currently
listed for sale represent the price Sellers hope to obtain and are in
competition with you for the Buyers for your price range.
Information can also be provided on those listings that have
expired. Expired listings
were generally overpriced or marketed poorly.
I will be pleased to prepare a comparative market analysis for your home based on the most current market information. Together you and I can determine a proper price for listing your home by taking all of these factors into account along with the timing you wish to achieve.
Have the Realtors explain the costs involved in selling a house and get some idea of how informed they are in terms of the price range you are considering.
