Arriving at an asking price involved up to the minute

research and experienced judgment. 

Besides enlisting our help in checking out the current real estate market conditions and financing trends, the basic steps include:

� Measuring your home against similar neighborhood

   homes that have recently been sold or are currently       on the market;

� Determining what features make your house stand   out among others currently on the market. After all,   buyers are comparison shoppers;

� Weighing the spending of a reasonable amount of   money on cosmetic fix-ups that might enhance the   marketability of your house and earn the highest   possible sale price;

The right price is usually within 5% of market value   (a constantly changing factor) and usually results in a   fair-dollar sale within a reasonable amount of time. As   we like to say, "Price sells".

Why is overpricing risky?

A price more than 5% over market value may have these results:

� Buyers may resist inspecting your home because they can

 find better values elsewhere. Overpriced houses tend to  sell the competition first;

� Potential buyers who can't afford the price don't

  bother to look or to make offers;

� A buyer willing to pay an over market price may have

 difficulty getting financing. Lenders may not approve a  loan if the appraisal is lower than the contract price.  The delay from a failed sale can mean missing out on  the critical first 30-day marketing period;

� Your unsold home will begin to get "stale" as the

 marketplace assumes there is something wrong with  the house; and

� To make up for lost time you might be inclined to  lower the price below competing houses in order to  move it.

Is it ever smart to underpriced?

Setting a price below market value usually isn't preferable because you may be losing money. If time is more important than money and you need a faster than average sale, you may consider setting a bargain price to attract the greatest number of prospects. The chart above shows how asking price affects the number of prospective buyers who

will look at that property. From experience, we know

market value delivers the optimum number of prospects at the best price for a quick sale.

our how to sell program.

How a market analysis helps price it right

Only a professional market analysis can give you the

accurate, reliable foundation you need to price your home right. When you ask for a fair-market analysis of your home, here is what we do:

Evaluate your home's location, lot size, your home's 

age, size and condition, the number of bedrooms, baths, 

total rooms and the kids of extra features you have such as improvements, built-ins garage, tool shed, spa etc;

� Examine the condition and appearance of your home's

exterior and interior. Help you determine what repairs or refurbishing may be needed to sell your home at its best price; our real estate expertise to help you price you  

� Review the assessed value of your home, its previous sale prices, your maintenance and utility costs and your local taxes;

� Compare your home with similar area properties currently for sale or recently sold; and

� Note current real estate market conditions with a

practiced eye, also current interest rates and lenders'

Consider fix-up?

In today's competitive market, most buyers will not even consider a house that needs fix-ups. In contrast, a sparkling

showcase home gets top dollar when it comes to the

bottom line. What most buyers are looking for is an inviting model home. Buyers who are willing to tackle the repairs after moving in automatically subtract the cost of needed fix-ups from the price they offer. Either way, you save nothing by putting off fix-ups and likely slow the sale of your house.

Is your home exterior acceptable?

Your house gets only one chance to make a good first

impression. That's why curb appeal is one of the most

critical points in selling.

Buyers are apt to fall in love at first sight, or not at all. If your home lacks curb appeal, chances are the first impression will not be counteracted by the most perfect floor plan or the most tasteful interior. 

Spruce up the view of the house from the street, including lawn,flowers out front, a wreath on the door, brass outdoor lighting fixtures and whatever will enhance your home's buy me look:

shrubs, shutters, windows, front door, mail box.

Don't spend too much for upgrade!

While it's important to fix whatever needs fixing to get your home ready for sale, undertaking a major project could cost more money than you would recover from sale.Spending too much on remodeling projects just drains money out of your pocket. If your improvements will push your home's value more than 20% over the average neighbouring home values, don't expect to recoup the entire cost. Some major projects, however, like replacing a rood, should be done if they are needed.

Sell your home yourself and ruin the process!!

Going it alone like General Custer could invite disaster.

Without a professional adviser, you probably won't sell.

Even if you do sell, surveys show self-sellers often net less from the sale than sellers who use a real estate agent.

Selling a house is a team effort between you and the listing know, from bringing qualified buyers to keeping things on track to settlement.

Ready to show the house at anytime!

The presence of your family can make prospective buyers

feel like intruders. If you're at home when your home is

being shown, be your usual friendly but low-key self

and keep children and pets out from underfoot. It's the

agent's job to show buyers what they need to see.

Buyers can better focus on the homes advantages by viewing them than by socializing. If an open house is scheduled, plan to be away from home, but let us know how to reach you quickly. When you're not at home at other times, agents accompanying prospects will leave their business card.Please alert us afterward so we can follow up agent.

Be Flexible

No one wins If you enter negotiations with boxing gloves on.

Instead, approach negotiations in a positive frame of mind,not as an adversary of the buyer. After all, you want the same thing , a sale. Leave most of the discussion of price, terms, possession and other conditions up to your agent.

We'll make it our business to get you the best deal.
