The number one reason a home doesn’t sell is that it is overpriced.

You may have a magic number in your head, but we can tell you the price that will actually get your home sold. We have access to information that allows us to determine a price that will get you the most money for your home while selling it quickly. Some will say there is buyer for every home, but we say “only if it is at the right price.”

This home in Ellicott City, Md. is listed at $3.2 million with more than 10,000 square feet of living space. Click here for more photos.

We will perform a detailed trend analysis that looks at recent sales of similar homes in your area, plus other comparable homes that are currently on the market. You have to understand that these current homes are your competition. You want to have the nicest home of all those in the same price range. You want a buyer to feel they just can’t pass it up.

Your price should compel buyers to be interested in your home, to want to see it, and to consider it. Price it too low and buyers wonder if something is wrong; price it too high and you excluded the most likely buyers. Plus, a home priced too high sits on the market, again causing buyers to wonder what is wrong. And let’s say you do manage to find a buyer at a higher price. Then, if it doesn’t appraise for that amount, the buyer’s financing is denied. You’re back to square one.

Let us find the right price, right from the beginning. Then we will guide you in the no-cost to low-cost improvements you can make to create a great first impression. Finally, we will market your home to the house-hunters mostly likely to buy. Click here to get a custom report on the market value of your home.
