Setting the right price for your home is key to the home selling process. Learn how to study market trends and set the right price for your home. In addition to sale prices of other comparable homes, there are several ways you can come up with a winning bid.
- The condition of the house. Is the home in move-in condition, in need of paint and other cosmetic improvements, or a fixer-upper that needs real work?
- The market. If you are in a buyer’s market — where there are more homes for sale than there are people to buy them — prices are probably stable or falling. If you are in a seller’s market — where there are more buyers looking for homes than there are homes for sale — prices are probably moving upward.
