Earlier this year, I listed a New Town home in Key West for $700,000. Ten days later it was under contract for the full price and we closed 32 days later. The main reason this home went under contract so fast is because my client had a goal to sell quickly and she was content to price her home appropriately. 

Throughout my website, I often speak of pricing homes appropriately. This means running an accurate Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) on what similar size homes have sold for in recent months. I also consider the condition of the home and factor any repairs or upgrades that need to be made to reach a maximum return. Often, the goal of each client is to sell without further spending money. Therefore, it is wise to price the home appropriately to eliminate the need for nickel-and-dime negotiations.

Sellers must also examine their goals as well. If the goal is to sell quickly, then this must be reflected in the price. If you are just “playing or testing the market”, and put an extremely high price on your home, you need to be prepared for it to sit on the market for an extended period.

If you are considering selling your home or just curious as to what your home may be worth, contact me for a complimentary home valuation! I’m happy to meet with you to discuss your goals.
