Pricing Your Home For Sale
At any point in time, there are several other homes for sale competing with your home. Whether or not your home is in Leavenworth, Wyandotte, Jefferson, Douglas County or other communities in Kansas buyers now no longer have the luxury of time — they need to make decisions and jump on houses quickly. However, this doesn’t mean that you can ask for lots more than your home is worth in today’s market. You must know what’s going on in your local housing market in order to price your home competitively and to attract the qualified buyer. Please also see 3 Ways Sellers Sabotage Their Sales.
I will help you determine the market value of your home by generating a written comparative market analysis, which will show you a range of prices being paid for homes in your area. We use data from sales of homes closest in size, closest in distance, and closest in time of sale to yours. These are the three most important “markers.” Then, we compare condition and amenities.
We will also discuss other factors that help us determine the value of your home:
- Square footage of your home and lot
- Condition of your property, amenities and ambiance
- Buyer demand level for homes in your area and competition from other homes for sale
- Your motivation
- Availability of financing; FHA programs, etc.
- Interest rates (currently good)
