Setting the Price on Your Home

Aug 17, 2007
There are a lot of factors that determine the sale of a house. Pricing is one of them. It is important that you set the right price if you are planning to sell your house as is. Make sure that you neither set the price out of market nor face a loss. As a home seller you need to take some important steps before putting up the house for selling.

There are a lot of factors that affect the price of any house:
1) Condition of the house: a well maintained house might fetch you more than the price you had expected. If you are planning to sell your house as it is then make sure that it is well maintained and organized. The location may be very good but if the interiors are neglected then your house will never sell for more.
2) Location of the house: a house situated in a good location is always in demand. If you are having your house in a nice location then your house is sure to fetch more than what you have imagined.
3) Amenities: if your house consists of the popular amenities then it will help you in selling your house at a high price.
Purpose of sale:
Before setting the price on your home it is advisable to determine the purpose behind selling the house. The goal can act as an important factor in calculating the price for selling. Your goal may consist of selling the house quickly at the top of the market value, having your house in the market for a long time to get maximum price or sell it quickly by considering a sacrifice in the profit. Fix the selling price on the basis of house selling goal.
Conduct a market analysis:
Getting an estimate of the value your house has, will be helpful when you are setting the price of your house. To get this estimate conduct a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA). This analysis will provide you a comparison of similar houses in the same area. A real estate agent can do this comparison or you can do it on your own. CMA will also give you the information about the pending, expired or to-be-sold sale of houses. You can also get information regarding the interest rates and the pace at which houses are being sold in your area. Comparative market analysis is based on facts. You need to be concentrate on the sold properties, as this will help you set the price for your house.

Think like a homebuyer:

This will help you in setting the right price for your home. Thinking from the buyers point of view will restrict you from making the wrong decision in setting the price. Take time in fixing the final listing price. If you set a price that is higher than the market rates then no one will buy your house. Do not under price your house to sell it quickly because this will pose as a disadvantage to your expected return. You can also get your house appraised by a professional appraiser. If your friends or relatives have sold their house recently without making any renovations then you can also take some pricing tips from them.
Since you are selling your house as it is, it is important to set the price keeping in mind the present condition of your home, because there will be no buyers for a disorganized overpriced house. Even if you come across a buyer who is unaware of the condition of the house the credit lenders appraisal will force you to pull down the price.
