Sell your Houston Home For More
When you put your home up for sale, one of the best ways to determine the asking price is to look at comparable sales. There’s rarely a perfect apples-to-apples comparison, so a pricing decision often relies on comparisons to several recent sales in the area. Here are five criteria to look for in a sales comparison.
Location is Paramount
Location: Homes in the same neighborhood typically follow the same market trends. Comparing your home to another in the same neighborhood is a good start, but comparing it to homes on the same street or block is even better. Renovator Realty of Texas looks at where you live and where you want to live to determine a course of action.
Timing your sale
Date of sale: It varies by location, but housing markets can see a ton of fluctuation in a short time period. It‘s best to use the most recent sales data available.
Type of Home
Home build: Look for homes with similar architectural styles, numbers of bathrooms and bedrooms, square footage, and other basics.If your home needs renovation We can help you with no money down and no payment until closing.
Features and upgrades: Remodeled bathrooms and kitchens can raise a home’s price, and so can less flashy upgrades like a new roof or HVAC system. Ronald Graham is an expert in renovation for raising the value and comfort of the homes he sells.
Issues That Can Effect Your Profit
Sale types: Homes that are sold as short sales or foreclosures are often in distress or sold at a lower price than they’d receive from a more typical sale. These homes are not as useful for comparisons, however if this is your situation, you should never settle for a quick deal that may get you out of a bind, but leaves you with very little once it's done.
