How Do Home Sellers Decide On Setting Their Price in Danbury,CT Area

Real Estate Agent with William Pitt Sotheby's International Realty CT RES.0783448

There are a few things that home owners in the Greater Danbury are have to consider when setting the sales price for their home. 

Condition: The condition of your home should be reflected in the pricing. If other homes have been updated and yours reflects much of the original construction but things are working, you can not expect buyers to pay as much for your home as your neighbors have gotten. In the contrary,we have to be careful about taking price plan if your home is the largest or most improved. 

Motivation:If you want sell quickly I would go the lower end of the comps based on your homes  condition and hold pretty firm when it goes to negotiating any offers. If you are in not much of a hurry, we can go toward the higher end of the market but if the feedback isn't what we hope for, then it may be necessary to adjust your price. Also you have a certain time that you want to close by, we can market based on that using data to discuss a plan of action for your sale.

Market Conditions: We will review the market trends prior to listing. If homes are slow to sell in your category or the market has little inventory, we can plan accordingly with a pricing & market plan to get you the results that you are looking for.

Other note for consideration:The real estate market doesn't care how much you purchased your home for,unless it was within the last 6 months. Most buyers generally do not have concern for what your mortgage payoff is going to be & your closing costs are going to be In some cases, it is close to being a short sale where the buyer may if they really like your home, they may decide to come up with the money so the seller won't have to go through the process or have to wait months for approval. No matter how much you want for your home, you have to be realistic for the market & the home has to appraise .
