Here Is How I Decided On My List Price

By
Real Estate Agent with Haven Express @ Keller Williams Arizona Realty BR534744000 & BR540649000

I added the following numbers:

What I paid for the property in the mid 2000s

What I have spent in property maintenance and improvements since that time

What I need to net from the sale of the property

And a bonus because my house is the best house in the neighborhood.

 

Hmmm...said a voice... That list price is significantly above the list price at which several other similar properties expired in the past few months.

 

That's OK - as I said it's the best house in the neighborhood.

And I'm sure it will appraise.

 

Hmmm...said a voice...and what will you do if it doesn't appraise for that price?

 

 

 

 

 

CRICKETS!!

 

 

 

 

 

Hmmm...well let me know if you decide you want to list at a price the market data indicates is appropriate.

 

In the meantime I can refer you to other agents who will "Buy" your listing...

This is when I pull out my copy of the code of ethics and show them that I am not allowed to "lie to get a listing"  I have to work in their best interest even when they don'w want me to.  I can't put my company on the record for taking a listing that will not sell.  End of story.

Yes. Those agents can buy the listing and it will sit on the shelf collecting dust.
