Multiple factors influence whether your property will sell. These factors include:

  • Location
  • Price
  • Sales terms
  • Property condition
  • Your listing brokerage and listing agent

Of these factors, price is perhaps the most important. One of the most valuable services a licensed REALTOR® can provide is determining the optimal listing price for your property. By constructing a detailed comparative market analysis (CMA), your listing agent will analyze comparable sold and expired listings to determine the best price at which to list your home.

In addition to the CMA, multiple other factors will influence your home’s listing price, including:

  • Appraised value
  • Your motivation and urgency to sell
  • Property condition and desirability

By determining the most accurate price for your home, your agent will help you to avoid some of the typical consequences of overpricing. An overpriced home:

  • Eliminates many buyers and may even convince them to purchase a comparable property
  • May not appraise
  • May ultimately result in a lower selling price
  • May discourage other agents from showing your home, leaving your property to wallow in the market with few to no offers coming in

On the other hand, pricing your property correctly will help you to complete your sale faster. Jack Lingo, REALTOR® sales agents are the best of the best when it comes to determining the most accurate listing price for your home, ensuring that your property sells quickly and under the best possible terms.
