DETERMINING YOUR HOMES VALUE

If you want your property to sell in the current North Georgia real estate market, proper pricing is key!

Have you ever wondered why some properties sit on the market for months and get relisted and relisted over and over again, but never sell? The problem is simple - they are not priced correctly.

In the current market we are seeing good properties languish because the market is falling out from under them and they are not keeping up.

Unlike pricing a home in the city, you simply cannot pull comps from a neighborhood can call that a CMA.

Your home will be in direct competition with similar homes selling as short sales and foreclosures, but there are many more factors that must be considered when pricing a mountain home for sale as well.

The first, of course, is location. Some areas simply pull a higher price than others. If your property provides easy access to water or an amazing mountain view, that is a benefit.

In addition, age, condition and size all come into play when finding your home's value. As does, your current competitions price-vs-value ratio and the probability that the bank appraisal will meet your desired price.

Please drop me an email if I can help you with property pricing. I will gladly prepare an up to the minute CMA for your home.
