  45. 45. Pricing
  46. 46. Understanding Market Value <ul><li>Market-sensitive pricing can be the key to maximum market exposure and, ultimately, a satisfactory sale. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The existing pool of prospective buyers determines a property’s value based on: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Location, design, amenities and condition. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Availability of comparable (competing) properties. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Economic conditions that affect real property transactions. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Factors that have little or no influence on the market value of a house include: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>The price the seller originally paid for the property. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>The seller’s expected net proceeds. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>The amount spent on improvements. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The impact of accurate pricing: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Properties priced within market range generate more showings and offers, and sell in a shorter period of time. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Properties priced too high have a difficult time selling. </li></ul></ul></ul>
  47. 47. These are the best buyers! 1) They understand what they’re looking for and know how much to pay for it. 2) They can make a fast decision. <ul><li>An asking price that is beyond market range can adversely affect the marketing of a property. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Fewer buyers are attracted, and fewer offers received.  </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Marketing time is prolonged, and initial marketing momentum is lost.  </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The property attracts &quot;lookers&quot; and helps competing houses look better by comparison.  </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>If a property does sell above true market value, it may not appraise, and the buyers may not be able to secure a loan.  </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The property may eventually sell below market value. </li></ul></ul>Benefits of Market Pricing
