I share comparables while explaining differences and have a list price range in mind.  Some sellers just want me to provide a price while others like to "choose" if it's in the range and they prefer $498,000 instead of $500,000 -- we're good.

Nathan - I certainly review comps with my sellers, and then I provide them with a range I believe their home should be listed for based on those comps, and the market. I also explain that if they list it at the lower range, chances are they will get more activity and the home will probably sell faster. If they list the home at the higher price range, it may sit longer, but may sell for a little more. Then I ask them what price they would feel comfortable listing their home at.

We provide comps and a range.  We also provide an estimated net sheet based on the low range and the high range, discuss the comps, the market, other homes that are their competition currently active on the market, listing strategy and ultimately the price they list is their decision but we give them feedback and advice based on the facts and if they are way outside of what is realistic then we don't want the listing.  -Kasey

I would give them the price range of house before seeing it, and then again after seeing it and I would work that out with the Seller by finding out what they think it is worth, my range of what the market says it is worth and also what is the mimimum they would accept for a sales price and go from there.

I provide them the tools to accept or deny the facts.

They already have a number(s).

One from the tax authorities they do not understand.

One from the darkside they fear.

One from the agent stuffing their mailbox.

One from Abner the past agent and flipper.

One more to add to the list
if you play their game
or let them measure
the value of their treasure

Thenmove them to a new home.
