When it comes to selling your North Metro Denver area home pricing strategies can be a huge help when it comes to selling. Having a knowledgeable agent in this area is key! Knowing the housing market and where your current home fits in the pricing scale, can help your home sell faster. A really good real estate agent can positively affect the selling price point of your home by as much as 5%.

Competitive Based Pricing Strategies

Having a home that is on the market next to you can help your agent know what to list your home for. Having a house near you on the market should not be viewed with a negative outlook. Think of why they put similar restaurants near each other? Buyers want to have something to compare to! See which homes in your market are similar to yours. How long were they on the market for, and what their selling price is.

If you have looked at the sold data, you should know how many similar homes sold in the past twelve or twenty-four months in your area. This is a pretty good predictor of where your home should sell for. Your agent can do this by attractively pricing your home as compared to the competitive listings in your neighborhood. Does your home have added value such as big backyard, 4 bedrooms instead of 3, or even a renovated kitchen and dining area? All these will be considered when it comes to pricing your home and comparing home values in your area.

Listing Prices And Numbers

Using round numbers when it comes to listing your home is more attractive to buyers. Contacting your agent to agree on listing price is an important step. This number can be flexible and should be able to give you some wiggle room. For instance leave some room for closing costs to be adjusted into your price. The result is that you will get more showings because your home is $50,000 below other similar homes. You are offering a “better deal” and, regardless of the other competitive sellers that may have negotiated down. Instead, you are the seller that gets the offer(s).
