Setting the Price

The price is the first thing buyers notice about your property. If you set your price too high, then the chance of alienating buyers is higher. You want your house to be taken seriously, and the asking price reflects how serious you are about selling your home.

Several factors will contribute to your final decision. First, you should compare your house to others that are in the market. If you use an agent, he/she will provide you with a CMA (Comparative Market Analysis). The CMA will reflect the following:

  • houses in your price range and area that were sold within the last half-year
  • asking and selling prices of houses
  • current inventory of houses on the market
  • features of each house on the market

From the CMA, you will learn the difference between the asking price and selling price for all homes sold, the condition of the market, and other houses comparable to yours.

Also, try to find out what types of houses are selling and see if it applies to your area. Buyers follow trends, and these trends can help you set your price.

Always be realistic. Understand and set your price to reflect the current market situation.

Testimonials

Curtis and Pat are very courtious and professional. You'll get top of the line service and they will go out of their way to make sure you're satisfied. They treat you like family and stay in touch. We couldn't have asked for better realtors or friends! Tara Davidson Fain
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for helping us find a great home to live in. We first spoke to you two years ago. At that time, you knew that we were not yet ready to purchase a home or to move. Still, you showed us a few houses. You also took the time to show us some of the highlights of the area, such as the Roanoke Star and the Market District. Over the following two years, you always kept in touch. You sent us nearly 350 houses to review and personal notes about how we were. When we sold our house in NYC and came down to Roanoke, you took us around again and we found a dream house. We still had business to finish in NYC and you took charge, getting an inspection of the home and arranging for a closing agent to handle the purchase. Thank you for finding just the right home and for treating us as friends, not as customers. If any of our friends wants to make a move out here, we would recommend you and ReMax without reservation. Alfred and Clara Rodney
We bought our house with Patricia & Curtis. They were very knowledgeable, fair and honest and very helpful. We would highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate. It was a pleasure to visit houses with them. Jean-Luc and Regine Willem
