ideals when you hire me to sell your home” here
to serve you and all of your needs. I look forward
to working together!

SETTING THE PRICE
OF YOUR HOME
THE THREE FACTORS TO CONSIDER
IN PRICING YOUR HOME!
Your home’s location and setting is a key component to
assessing its value. A home on a quiet tree lined street
sells for more than the identical home on a busy street.
New homes enjoy a marketing edge over resale homes be-
cause they are clean and shiny. We can increase the value
and decrease marketing time by being sure your home is
in the best working and visual condition as possible
Your home must be priced within the appropriate price
$ range. If your home is listed at a price that is above market
value, you will miss out on prospective buyers who would
otherwise be prime candidates to purchase your home.
The percentage of buyers increases as your home is priced
at or below market value, therefore increasing the
exposure to the consumer.
