When preparing to sell your home an important component is what should be the list,or, asking price should be. Listing a price too high or too low can result in pricing out some bonfire buyers or leaving dollars on the table.
A market analysis prepared by an experienced realtor can provide valuable information needed to decide at what price to list. A good one will have recently sold homes that are similar to your house, the current inventory of active homes that you will be competing with and will account for differences like square footage, features and amenities. Often it will look similar to an appraisal, but cannot be used as one.
Jimmy White and Mary Casson are quite skilled in the preparation of these analysis.
