Are you thinking about selling your house or condo in the Greater Phoenix area? If so, you’re likely wondering what your home is worth and how much you could receive if it sold today. In this post we’ll share a bit of guidance on how to establish the true value of your home and some tips to ensure that when you’re ready to sell you price it correctly.
Research Your Competition
If you have yet to visit our real estate listings page, it’s a great place to start to gain an understanding of what your home and property would be worth if you decided to list it today. Take a look at homes in your neighborhood that are of a similar size and have similar features. If you were selling today, you would be competing with these other listings for the attention of prospective buyers. The local real estate market and whether it is ‘hot’ or ‘cold’ will play a significant role in what your prospective buyers will be willing to pay for your home.
Pay Close Attention to Market Trends
On that note, it’s also important to take some time to research market trends to determine if we’re either in or heading in to a ‘seller’s market’. Unless you need to sell as you are moving out of the city, you should aim to sell when the market is in your favor as you’ll be able to realize a higher purchase price. Contact our offices and we can share a bit of additional guidance.
Value Your Upgrades – but Don’t Overvalue Them
While there are some home upgrades that add immense value – like adding an array of solar panels or completely renovating the bathrooms – there are others that tend to add little and may actually subtract value if potential buyers view them as a nuisance. When establishing the value of your home you’ll want to factor in all of the renovations and upgrades you’ve made to the property – but don’t overvalue them. Remember: what you see as a benefit your potential buyer might see as something that needs to be re-renovated.
