  23. 23. Determining Today’s Market Value of Your Home<br />What it costs to build today <br />What other agents say <br />What you spent on upgrades<br />What your neighbors say<br />What you spent on repairs <br />What you spent on remodeling<br />What you spent on new carpet <br />What you paid <br />What you need <br />What you want <br />The fair market value of your home is determined by the market, that is, Buyers and what they are willing to pay under current influences. <br />Factors influencing the value of your home<br />The current real estate market<br />Lot size, square footage, condition of home<br />Location, special amenities<br />Prices of comparable homes<br />Your level of motivation<br />Factors that do not affect value.<br />
  24. 24. Determining a Market-Sensitive Price<br />An impartial evaluation of market activity is the most effective way to estimate a property&apos;s potential selling price. A Comparative Market Analysis considers similar properties that:<br /> Have sold in the recent past<br /> Are currently on the market<br /> Failed to sell<br />
  25. 25. The Dangers of Overpricing<br />An asking price that is beyond market range can adversely affect the marketing, and ultimately the sale, of a property.<br />The WRONG buyers view your home<br />Fewer buyers attracted and fewer offers received <br />Marketing time is prolonged and initial marketing momentum is lost<br />The property attracts &quot;lookers&quot; and helps competing houses look better by comparison<br />If a property does sell above true market value, it may not appraise, and the buyers may not be able to secure a loan<br />The property may eventually sell below market value<br />
  26. 26. Factors Leading to a Sale<br />Factors we can influence<br />Price - calculated to fair market value<br />Condition - what to repair, clean, replace, disclose<br />Terms - broaden the pool of potential buyers <br />Marketing - maximum exposure<br />Access - make it easier to view your property<br />Agent – the agent you choose<br />Factors beyond our control<br />Location - the most significant factor in property value<br />Timing - economic conditions, competition, seasonal factors<br />Property characteristics - size, amenities<br />
