The Home Selling Process

Determine a Price Strategy

Home Selling - Pricing

Your next objective is to consult with your real estate agent to determine the best possible selling price of your home. You will need to take into account the state of the local market, the condition of your home, and sales of comparable homes in your neighborhood. He or she should provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) by taking into consideration the type of market you are in and recent sales of comparable properties. Your agent will then guide you to the best fair market price that will help sell your home within your desired timeframe. Usually, real estate agents have a clearer and more objective sense of market value than anyone else - including appraisers!

At MaineHomeConnection our automated CMA reports are both sophisticated and easy to understand. We will review with you not only properties that are for sale or have recently sold - but those that didn't as well. Expired listings are indicative of what not-to-do!

Often, it can be hard for you, as a seller, to maintain objectivity, so remember to be reasonable about the price you set. You will always be better off setting a fair market value price than setting your price high expecting that someone will come along and be willing to pay it. If your home stays on the market too long because it is overpriced, potential buyers may think that something is wrong with it and you may end up selling it for less than what you could have gotten if you had started out with a realistic asking price.
