There are so many things to consider when selling your home. Of course, you want to make sure that it’s as attractive as possible to potential buyers. For this reason, you may be considering a wide variety of home improvements, or you might be calling a local cleaning service. To be sure, all of these things are very important. But, there’s one thing that rules them all, and that’s the price of your home.
Setting a price for your home can be incredibly hard. For one, you have an emotional attachment to your home, which will cause you to ask for more than you reasonably should. Also, since you’re obviously looking to get the greatest return on your investment, you’ll naturally be inclined to go as high as possible.
But, you have to remember Goldilocks. That’s because pricing your home is all about finding the right balance. You don’t want the price to be too high, and you also don’t want the price to be too low. So, how do you find that happy medium?
Well, determining the price for your home should be begin with market research. Look around the local area, and gauge the price that similar properties have sold for recently. This is a good benchmark. Also, look at homes that have been sitting on the market for a while. It’s quite possible that those homes are priced too high for prospective buyers in your area.
After this, you should have a relatively good idea about what you can charge for your home. The task of determining a price doesn’t end there, though. One thing that people selling their homes often forget – surprisingly – is that negotiation will be a part of the sale. Therefore, spend some time thinking about what price you will ultimately accept if a buyer tries to negotiate you down. This will make your job much easier later on down the road.
