Avoid These Mistakes When Selling Your Home

Setting an unrealistic price:

Setting the right asking price is the key to selling your house. The buyer’s agent usually does a comparative market analysis to determine a fair offering price, so it is advised that you as the seller do the same to determine a fair asking price. Overpriced homes generally do not sell. You should not worry about setting a price that is on the low side because usually, it generates multiple offers, which bids the price up to the home’s actual market value. This can be a good strategy to generate extra interest in your listing, and if an offer is way too low you can always refuse it.

Set a listing price: In this step, you usually hire an appraiser to get a professional opinion of what the appropriate price of the house would be. You can also get your agent to do a comparative market analysis, which is a service we offer. Another resource is Zillow’s Zestimate which estimates the market value of your own home and you can find it by searching your address on Zillow.

Pricing your home:

Pricing your home can be a hard thing to do alone, most people hire professionals like appraisers and/ or real estate agents. The first question that you might have is what is a comparative market analysis. A comparative market analysis or a CMA is a process your real estate agent performs in order to get a good idea of an appropriate listing price for your home. A CMA is typically a free process that is offered by your listing or buying agent. A CMA evaluates recently sold homes that are similar to yours (these are called comps). Real estate agents gather all of their information from the multiple listings service (MLS), which essentially pools information on all for-sale listings from other agents.
