Selling your home – how do you set your price?

Selling Home - Real Estate in DFW, pricing to sell, Sandy LuedkeIt’s the first day of spring, and a good time to plant that For Sale sign in the yard. Selling your home wasn’t a snap decision, and you’ve thought long and hard about your next move, but there’s one thing left to do – name your price. Do you list high to ward off tire-kickers, or list low in the hopes of a bidding war? What determines your price anyway?

Obtaining the help of a seasoned real estate agent (like me, Sandy Luedke!) will go a long way in getting you and your home prepared for that winning offer. Here are some questions you should ask your realtor, and they should have a ready answer for you:

  • What is the difference between list and sales prices?
  • What are the two most important factors when selling a home?
  • When is the best time to buy?
  • What is the difference between market value and appraised value?
  • What is the difference between list price, sales price and appraised value?
  • How does someone sell a slow mover?
  • How is the price set?
  • What are the standard ways of finding out how much a home is worth?
  • How do you prepare a house to sell?
  • Where do I get information on housing market stats?
  • How do I handle a low offer?

Answers to these questions and more are also available on Ideal Real Estate Group’s Resource Page for Home Sellers, in the article titled Pricing to Sell.
