Annette Lawrence , Palm Harbor, FL 727-420-4041 I usually give a seller a listing price option.

However, the type of option varies with the seller's circumstance.

1. If the property needs repairs or updating, I give them the option of selling "as is" without doing the repairs or updating (assuming the repairs aren't mandatory), and "as corrected."

2. If the seller isn't forthcoming about how quickly they want to sell, I give them "today's price" and "6 months down the road" price, although I qualify the future pricing is subject to change as a result of events we currently don't reasonably expect. (I frequently use the time frame between April 2008, before the market crash, and October 2008, after the market crash, as an example of what can happen in such a long time-frame.)

Great question!

Sometimes yes, sometimes no. If I know the prospective sellers and their home, most likely yes. If it's the first time I'm in the home and it's got unique issues, probably not... and I need to do more research. I don't like to shoot from the hip. But I do review overall market and sales trends for their area and neighborhood at the listing appointment.

Yes. I run a current CMA through my local MLS software and also through RPR. I give my clients a range based on the amount of work they want to do, their timeframe, the market and other pertinent variables. I also do this from time to time during the duration of the listing.

I provide and review the comps and discuss how the seller's home compares recent solds in the area.  The CMA provides a range of prices and the recommended price. From that info, the seller decides the listing price.

Yes. i alsways ask how much they have on hand to spend on needed repairs? How much they want to net is a factor when considering how fast they want to get under contract and to closing. Net 98% and be on market 45-90 days, or net 92% and be on market for 1-14 days. It's case by case.

Annette Lawrence , Palm Harbor, FL 727-420-4041 - price options? Give the range and most sellers are going to pick the higher number.

The number of days on market is inversely proportional to the number they pick for price from this range.

After reviewing the comps, and how the Seller's home compares to homes recently sold, I give them a price "range" as a recommendation, but ultimately it is the Seller who selects the listing price.  However, that being said, if they are completely unrealistic and want to overprice it, with no provision to decrease the price after a ceretain time period, I decline the lsiting.

Annette Lawrence , Palm Harbor, FL 727-420-4041 I usually give a low to median price range. Since they will always go high even they want to list above the median range, they will still be in the ball park.

In my market as-is just doesn't work. When you go into a home that nothing has been done to in 20 years, it's like pulling teeth to suggest new carpet & paint.  Many say how much 'as is' & I tell them that the 20K difference is better to do the work themselves.

I look at it that I'm helping them make more money & sell faster. Too deep of a discount expected for as-is.

Yes. It is not my decision to come up with a price point. It is, however, my choice to decline or accept the listing. I provide the scenario of predictable results at each price market range. I typically will only accept middle range.
