    46. 46. An Important Message About The Value Of Your House The price of your house must attract enough attention among buyers and brokers to generate showings and offers. Market Pricing Pricing you property competitively will help attract the greatest number of potential buyers. Best Price Obtainable The higher the price above realistic market value the fewer the buyers willing to consider your property. Above Realistic Market Value At Realistic Market Value Listing Price MENU
    47. 47. The Right Price For Your home….. Best Price Obtainable Above Realistic Market Value At Realistic Market Value Listing Price A home priced at its market value has a 95% chance of being sold with in a reasonable marketing period. The higher its price in relation to other similar properties currently being marketed, the less the probability of its sale. The initial exposure gets the most attention! Buyers make their decisions by comparison and homes which compare unfavorably with others, price wise, do not sell. Homes listed above market value attract the wrong prospects and help sell other homes. Buyers are often hesitant to buy homes which have had a long period of exposure to the marketplace, fearful that there is something wrong with them. Ultimately, the selling price of your home will be set by the market. We can serve you best by determining the current market value of your home. MENU
