Home Seller Tip: Price Sets Expectation

I rarely preview properties prior to showing homes for sale in Viera, Florida and the surrounding communities.   These are some of the primary areas I work in and consists of many newer homes in the middle price range of our Brevard County, Florida housing market.

In this price range there is an expectation a property will be move in ready or require minimal work by a new owner.

Anyone considering selling their Brevard County, Florida home should take the above sentence to heart.

The challenge for many sellers is to back away from the comfort of your home's current condition and take a look at it from an outsider's perspective.  Sellers should expect prospective buyers to be critical of their home and work to minimize the opportunity for negatives.

If you are considering selling your home ask yourself if there are any issues you have been living with that really need to be addressed.

Regardless of your home's condition the key is to price it appropriately for the market and competition.   

After all, it is the price that sets the expectation.
