The first step would be to identify your home’s realistic price on the current market depending on all the factors mentioned above. Hiring a realtor will give you easy and quick access to all you need to know in order to determine that.
In a seller’s market the price is largely determined by how much the buyer will be willing to pay. At the same time, asking for more than other sellers on the same market puts you at a potential disadvantage.
Considering all factors and making the smartest strategic choice for your property is an important part of a realtor’s job, and will save you a lot of money in the process.
