Statistics are invaluable when determining the list price for your home and expectations for a sale. As Realtors we have access to the most up to date information necessary to sell your home for the highest and best price possible during any given time period as the real estate market fluctuates. A Realtor’s evaluation, along with current data, is the true indicator of what a buyer is willing to pay for your home. Sellers should not rely upon hearsay or third party internet websites to provide you with the same accuracy. Sellers can be robbed of thousands of dollars if a seller prices their home too high. On the flip side may leave money on the table by pricing their home too low. The best time to grab the attention of a buyer is within the first two weeks of listing your home. The right list price in a competitive market may even bring multiple offers and an above list sales price.
