Ready to place your home up for sale in The Woodlands, TX real estate market? Chances are you already have an idea of the price at which you’d ultimately like to sell the property— it’s getting to that number that might be difficult. But before you get ready to list your property among homes for sale in The Woodlands, take a look at these tips to get you closer to your desired sale price and one that can help sell your home in a timely fashion.
Leave Your Emotion at the Door
Even though you probably think your home is the best on the local market, you have to approach pricing with a neutral, unattached attitude. Remember that a home sale doesn’t always translate dollar for dollar— you might have to disregard the price at which your neighbor is selling their home even though yours is bigger and has a better view and even the amount of time and money you put into your kitchen remodel. Your real estate agent will be able to tell you what price is appropriate for your property, despite those elements.
Price Per Square Foot
It’s been said that a good rule of thumb for pricing can be calculated by your price per square foot. Figure out the price per square foot of homes in your area for a good starting point, but also keep in mind the actual price could be give or take 10 percent.
Consult Your Agent
Speaking with your real estate agent in The Woodlands, TX is a great way to get ideas about pricing for your home. Your real estate agent will be able to give you a comparative market analysis which examines other homes in the area that recently sold and others that didn’t. This is helpful to dive deeper into the prices that attracted homebuyers and motivated them to buy a house in the Woodlands.
Check out the DOM (Days on the Market)
Take a look at the days a home has been on the market as this often plays into its pricing. If you need to sell your Woodlands home more quickly, it might be necessary that you price slightly lower than other comparable homes to attract homebuyers.
