Are you thinking about selling? Do you know what your home is worth in a hot real estate market? You might think a simple Google search is the answer. When you Google ‘What’s my home worth” a handful of popular real estate search sites wiggle their way to the top. All you have to do is enter your street address and BOOM! You have a price. WW! That was fast!
Can you see the problem with this pricing approach? Imagine you decided to sell your car and all you had to do was put in the color of your car and in seconds you were given a suggested sale price. That sounds ridiculous doesn’t it?…but that’s about how these sites work. How did this tool price your home in seconds? It’s safe to say that it doesn’t take into consideration local trends, the new flooring you installed last year, area attractions and other regional factors that might increase or decrease your home value. These sites quickly ping public data about your property and give you a guess. An online price evaluation tool might get you in the ballpark for price, but it can’t replace the local knowledge and experience of a real estate expert.
??Listing your home at an accurate price from day one is an important factor in a successful sale. My office uses a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) and just like these online tools, I do this for FREE! An accurate CMA will help find us establish a price that makes sense in the current real estate market based on a variety of factors including- your homes specific characteristics, local markets, location, and recent home sales in your area. If you’re ready to sell your home, sell it with confidence. I can help you set the perfect price for your home and pair it with over 15 years of real estate experience, top tier marketing and an entire team of real estate professionals ready to help you make the most of your home sale! I don’t just list homes, I sell them. Call the Casey Watters office at Real Estate Solutions today! 715-434-7904
