Getting the Highest & Best Price (Localism)

Real Estate Agent with Bates Real Estate Group Inc

So you have decided to put your property up for sale, now it is time to meet with your favorite realtor. Be very careful when setting the price point, be realistic in what you expect to get at end of closing.  Be very careful examining the comparable properties in your neighborhood. Investigate the type of repairs made; consider closing costs by using a net sheet, etc. Your realtor should never over-quote what the real market price is just to get the listing, because he will never be able to sell your property for more than the offer received by the highest bidder.

Work out a schedule with your realtor in advance as to when you'd like to go over how your listing is performing compared to the competition including unique visitors and open houses. Reports should be provided to sellers on a regular basis and reviewed to adjust price point if needed.

I had not thought about sending out a blog like this, I hope that you are able to get lots of responses to it.  I know that my listings on active rain have helped me keep in touch with the market. and other agents.
