Property Pricing: Major Mistakes to Avoid

  1. 1. Property Pricing: Major Mistakes to Avoid The price is one of the most important factors for the success of private property sellers. What are the biggest errors?
  2. 2. Allowing Emotions and Attachment to Affect the Price of the Property The price of real estate for sale by owner is calculated on the basis of complex formula. Many factors play a role but emotional attachment is not one of them. Many private property sellers tend to overprice the house due to their emotions and the belief that it is worth more than its actual market value.
  3. 3. Basing the Decision on the Amount You Invested in the Property The amount you invested in the house many years ago cannot be used to determine its current price. The market changes, it goes through highs and lows. The price you paid for the house could be lower or higher than its current market value. Forget about using this number as the basis of your private property sale price calculation.
  4. 4. No Professional Appraisal A professional that deals with real estate valuations will be capable of determining the price of your real estate for sale by owner accurately. This is your best opportunity to sell quickly. The asking price can encourage or discourage buyers from contacting you. This is why professional appraisals are worth getting and using for the creation of your marketing campaign.
  5. 5. Being Affected by Other Asking Prices Many other property sellers could be basing the price on the wrong criteria. Using other asking prices as the basis of your decision is a rather bad idea. The only way to make sure you have the best price is to work with a professional. Real estate ads should be examined simply to figure out what competition you are dealing with.
  6. 6. Thinking about the Price of Your New Home You cannot think about the price of your new home when determining the value of real estate for sale by owner. These properties are entirely different from each other and often, you will have to find additional funding for the purchase of a new house.
  7. 7. Asking for What You Need, Not for What the House is Worth The house is worth a certain amount. Even if you need more money, you will find yourself incapable of justifying a higher asking price. A high price will make it more difficult for you to sell and eventually, you will find yourself forced to decrease the price. Starting with an adequate amount will increase your ability to sell quickly and get the most for your house.
