Why is it vital to price the house right?
The most important first step you can make in selling a house is calculating an accurate fair market value. Price your home too low and you may lose thousands. Price your home too high and you may price yourself out of the market and never sell your home. If your house is for sale for a long time (buyers and agents can find out how long your home has been for sale), a potential buyer will think you might be getting desperate, so they will make low (and often insulting) offers.
1) CMA (Comparative Market Analysis): A CMA is developed by realtors; it is an informal estimate of your home's market value compared to comparable homes in your neighborhood. This will give you a great idea of what your asking price should be. This report is also useful in helping you make the changes needed to make your home for sale more desirable than your neighbor's home for sale.
2) Get an Appraisal by a local Appraiser: From $250 to $400 - A certified appraiser will come to your home to perform a physical valuation of your home at a given point in time. An appraisal carries a lot of weight in justifying your asking price with potential buyers. The appraisal will give you a very good estimate on a realistic listing price that is reasonable and competitive. The appraisal takes into consideration such things as: Home's square footage, Construction quality, Home design, Floor plan & layout, The neighborhood, Convenience to shopping, schools, and transportation, Lot size, topography, landscaping and views, Factors that affect a home's value as the condition of a property relative to the neighborhood, the condition of the current real estate market ("Seller's Market" or not)
It's critical that your home be competitive in price: Buyers do comparative shopping and act fast on a good deal. A good priced home will attract attention and generate activity from home buyers and brokers. If you aren't seeing any traffic from buyers, it is a clear indication that the listing price is not satisfying the marketplace test.
Leave room for negotiation: Buyers like to know they are getting a good deal. If you list your house for $250,000 and refuse to negotiate an offer received of $245,000, your potential Buyer may not feel that you are a willing participant in this "negotiation". If $250,000 is your goal for this sale, you may want to set your price slightly higher so there is room for negotiation... about $260,000 to $265,000. But don't price it too high or you won't get any phone calls. If you receive an offer and "negotiate" to your desired price of $250,000 - then your goal is met and the buyer is also happy to have gotten a good deal.
Who pays the commissions: In Broward county, Florida sellers pay commission, not buyers. Typically, commissions are 6% of the price, 3% goes to the Listing Agent that represents the Seller and 3% goes to the Buyer's Agent who brings the client.
