Real Estate - Ways to Make Sure the Price Is Right

Aug 17, 2007
Price is one of the most critical factors in the world of sales, as it can make or mar the deal between a seller and a prospective buyer. It is essential to set a genuine price for your real estate property, so that it simplifies the selling process. The price should be congruent to the present condition of the house because this is the key to sell it within a reasonable period of time. The set price should neither appear as blown up nor set too low because it will deter buyers, eventually making your house seem undesirable for purchase. It is necessary to determine probable profit while buying a property. Always try to buy low and sell at high price.

There are certain tips that will help you set the right price for your real estate property. They are as follows:

. Understand the property value: It is important to research and understand the actual worth of neighborhood property. It is one of the most critical steps that often benefit you. You should visit the property you wish to purchase and compare it with other neighborhood properties. Always maintain a detailed record of neighborhood selling prices for run down and better property. You can obtain information from local real estate brokers, tax assessor office, county clerk office and real estate appraisers. The process of gathering and analyzing information is known as a comparative market analysis.

. Estimate the project cost: The next most important step, after gathering information on property value is to start estimating the expense and expected profit. There are a number of costs that need to be considered, such as acquisition costs, which include the taxes, purchase price and origination fees. Try to get estimates from many lenders and compare them. Besides, it will also include repair costs, which involves everything that goes into improving the condition of the property. This is one of the main benefits of visiting the property. You tend to get a better idea about the repairs required. In addition, there are other costs like inspection fee, survey cost and title-search fee, fee for certificate of occupancy, utility costs and other unexpected repair costs.

. Determine the feasibility of the project: After understanding the property values in the neighborhood, it is important to evaluate the feasibility of your project. You can begin with the current value of the unimproved property. Add the renovation project costs and estimated interest in order to get a complete project cost. Then you can add your minimum profit to the total cost. If the total cost amounts to more than what you can get from an improved home sale in that particular neighborhood, then the project is not considered feasible.

. Calculate the maximum purchase price: It is advisable to figure out the maximum amount one should pay for the property. You can begin with the final selling price you can get in your neighborhood. Then deduct the renovation costs, profit margin along with selling costs and other project costs. The amount that you figure out will be the maximum amount you will be required to pay.
