OFFICIAL MAGAZINE OF THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®

Daily Real Estate News  |  September 21, 2010  |   Help Sellers Price Smartly
In the September “Pricing and Prep That Sells Your Home” article package now available at the REALTOR® Content Resource, you'll find ways to work with sellers on correctly pricing their home. Here are just two tips for making sure a home is a good comp:

Location: The closer to your house the better, but don’t just use any comparable sale within a mile radius. A good comparable sale is a house in your neighborhood, your subdivision, on the same type of street as your house, and in your school district.

Home type: Try to find comparable sales that are like your home in style, construction material, square footage, number of bedrooms and baths, basement (having one and whether it’s finished), finishes, and yard size.

Also covered in the September “Pricing and Prep That Sells Your Home” article package now at the REALTOR® Content Resource are free tips on preparing your home for sale, when to reduce your sales price, listing and selling a green home, and making your home FHA-friendly.

The REALTOR® Content Resource, the new tool brought to you by the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®, is an exclusive member benefit that entitles you to download free homeownership content from HouseLogic to your consumer Web site, blog, or e-newsletter. HouseLogic is the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS’® comprehensive consumer Web site geared to helping home owners make smart decisions to enhance, maintain, and protect the value of their home.
