The Comparative Market Analysis is generally considered the most effective method of determining what potential buyers will be willing to pay for your place. CMA will show similar properties that have recently SOLD and similar properties that are currently LISTED, this allows you to see what buyers have purchased over the last year and also see what buyers have to choose from (your competition). With this I can develop a picture of the potential market for your property.
Listing your property at market value is very important. Most buyers search for places within the parameters of their needs. If the buyer’s budget is $650,000, they are searching for places priced from $600,000 to $700,000 and if your place is not priced right you might miss this opportunity.
The market sets the price, not wishful thinking or any other factors, it is a simple law of supply and demand. My job is to help you set a realistic price to match market conditions so your home sells quickly for the best possible price. Proper pricing is key to a successful sale.
