The Home Valuation
Based on comprehensive research, and utilizing our Certified Pre-Owned Home Sale Program we determine the maximum asking price for your home.
Pricing your home accurately from the start is the most effective way to ensure a successful sale.
Setting your price too high can be as costly as setting it too low. Your home generates the most interest from potential buyers and real estate agents the first 2 weeks it is on the market. If it is not properly priced during this time you will miss out on this peak level of interest.
No amount of marketing can sell an overpriced home. The marketing we will do to promote your home has only one purpose – to increase awareness among potential buyers leading to in-person showings.
Once buyers reach your front door, the job of marketing is over.
Your home must now compete with other homes in two areas;
Features and Price.
If your home has more features that appeal to buyers – or your home is priced lower than comparable homes – your home will stand out as the better value.
Conversely, if your home lacks the features that potential buyers desire, your only option is to compete on price.
To be effective, your home should stand out as one of the top two to three best values in your immediate market place.
Many sellers are tempted to list their home with the agent who quotes the highest price.
Please keep in mind, the agent doesn’t set the price, the seller doesn’t set the price – the market will determine the final sales price, or value, for your property.
The most effective method of pricing your home is to have a professional pre-marketing appraisal by one of the Upstate’s most respected appraisal firms.
Our team will provide you with a complimentary CMA (comparative market analysis). We will make a detailed comparison between your home and the recently listed and sold homes that are similar in size, style, price, and location in the nearby neighborhoods to determine exactly the best price for your home in today’s market.
