L OCAL M ARKET E XPERTISE
L OCAL M ARKET E XPERTISE Exclusive Pricing Strategy If the asking price of a property increases beyond fair market value, the pool of potential guests decreases dramatically. Pricing it at or below market value increases the number of inquiries and the percentage of qualified guests viewing your home. The Property Appeals To: 15% Over Market Value 10% Over Market Value Fair Market Value 75% Of The Market If The Asking Price Is: 10% Of The Market 30% Of The Market 60% Of The Market 10% Under Market Value
Overpricing drawbacks are numerous and rarely to your benefit. L OCAL M ARKET E XPERTISE
Pricing your property higher than comparable rentals may actually help rent another property more quickly than yours.
Overpricing may attract the wrong type of guests.
Guest Service Reps may miss showing your property to potential qualified guests because your home is out of the client’s price range.
Fewer potentially qualified guests will respond to the
marketing done on behalf of your home.
