What is the best pricing strategy for your home. Do you review Trulia, Zillow or Realtor.com for tips ?
Im am interviewing for a new listing this weekend so I am getting property value estimates and ideas to present during my presentation. In my research I have looked at these sites for value out of curiosity Trulia, Zillow Realist, RPR and Realtor.com.
They have ranges from as low as $239,000 up to $295600 for the SAME house ! These sites CANNOT properly adjust for the most appropriate comparable nor make increase or decrease values for location, cleanliness, upgrades or even just a functional floor plan. Im amazed at how many people use these as a tool to price a home today.
I still need to see the house to see how it will compare and review location in the community, upgrades, or repairs needed, floor plan among other factors.
I will use the most appropriate SOLD listings that are closest to the subject in size, location and function and make adjustments . I will then review Tax assessment to sale ratio to ensure we are targeting the list price with int he same ranges. We will review competing listing and price and community int he same school zones. We want to ensure we are priced competitively with others while not going so low we give money away nor to high to just sit and not sell.
If your looking to Buy a home or Sell a home in the next year I would love to present my sales and purchase strategy to you.
