How to Price Your House
Pricing your house is one of the most important decisions you will make when selling it. You want to get a good price, but you also don’t want to price it too high and scare away buyers, additionally buyers will search by price which may cause your property not to be shown.
There are a few things you can do to price your house correctly:
Get a comparative market analysis (CMA). Kevin Webber, Carie Webber or any of the other agents at Webber Estates can provide you with a CMA, give us a call at (805) 493-2237
A CMA is a report that compares the prices of similar homes that have recently sold in your area, it takes into account land size, square footage, condition & improvements. This will give you a good idea of what your home is worth.
- Consider the current market conditions.
- The housing market is constantly changing, currently we are in a seller’s market. This means that right now, you may be able to get a higher price for your home. In time the market could slow down, by waiting you may need to price it lower.
- Factor in your personal needs.
- How quickly do you need to sell your home? How much money do you need to get out of it? These factors will also affect the price you set.
Once you have considered all of these factors, you can start to set a price for your home. Here are a few tips for how to price your house competitively:
You can always negotiate the price down, but it is better to start high and then come down than to start low and have to increase the price.
Don’t price your home so high that it is out of reach for potential buyers.
CONSIDER THE BUYER’S PERSPECTIVE.
What are the buyers looking for in a home? How much are they willing to spend?
Be prepared to negotiate with buyers.
By following these tips, you can price your house competitively and sell it quickly for the best price.
Here are some additional things to keep in mind when pricing your house:
THE CONDITION OF YOUR HOME.
The condition of your home will affect its value. If your home is in good condition, you can price it higher. If your home needs repairs, you may need to price it lower.
THE LOCATION OF YOUR HOME.
The location of your home is also important. Homes in desirable areas will typically sell for more than homes in less desirable areas.
THE AMENITIES IN YOUR HOME.
Homes with amenities, such as a pool or a garage, will typically sell for more than homes without amenities.
THE TIME OF YEAR YOU SELL.
The time of year you sell can also affect the price of your home. Homes typically sell for more in the spring and summer than in the fall and winter.
If you are not sure how to price your home, you should consult with a real estate agent. A good real estate agent can help you assess the value of your home and price it competitively.

DO YOUR RESEARCH.
