Pricing Your Property for Sale

The real estate market is constantly fluctuating, so pricing is not an exact science. Rather, it's a reasonable figure derived from a number of different components, such as:

 The status of the current real estate market.
 Hard facts such as lot size, square footage and home condition.
 Desirability factors such as location, amenities & property attributes.
 Selling and listing prices of comparable homes.
 A sophisticated & comprehensive marketing plan.
 Your level of motivation.

It's important to note that the following conditions do not affect your home's price:

 The profit you wish to make from the sale.
 The amount of money you've spent on improvements.
 What your friends and neighbors have told you it might be worth.
 What you originally paid for the home.

Why not "shoot for the stars"?
Nobody wants to leave money on the table, but given the current market conditions, it's not a good idea to be on the high-end of the real estate market - unless your property is in exceptional condition.  Pricing your home should NEVER be based on an emotional decision or what a seller "hopes" to make on the sale of their home.  The days of thinking "we'll start $10-20k high because we need wiggle room when the buyers negotiate us down" are gone.  The most recent nationwide correction in home property values and buyer awareness in the overall real estate market simply does not allow for these games to be played.  Overpricing today will most likely hurt your chance of selling quickly tomorrow.  When selling a home, it doesn't matter where you start (list price), it only matters where you finish (closing) - and you must never forget that YOU are in control of the final sales price.  If it's not what you can live with - you don't have to accept it.
