Pricing Your Chicagoland Home to Sell

The right pricing strategy is the most important factor leading to a successful sale of your home.

Agents must always have their appraisal goggles on when determining a listing price for each house. We’re often challenged by sellers that may have their own idea of what their homes are worth, but we must be realistic.  Our job is to get the seller the best possible price for their home, and at the same time avoid any appraisal issues that may cause the transaction to fall apart.

Although problems with appraisals are not as common as they were several years ago, it is important to price your home right to avoid issues with getting the selling price and the appraised value to match.  The agent representing the seller can work with appraisers and provide them with information on comparable properties.  It is also important to keep an open dialog with the seller so that their expectations regarding pricing are reasonable. 

How does a professional real estate agent determine the right listing price . . . a price that will encourage buyers to make offers . . . a price that will not trigger appraisal issues once a deal is made?  Read more about how a professional real estate agent prices your property.
