There’s a great saying in the real estate business. To succeed in life, you want to be:

  • The First Child
  • The Second Spouse
  • The Third Realtor

And like with most sayings, there is some truth in that statement, as agents who pick up listings after sellers have made major mistakes will attest.

The truth is it doesn’t really matter how much money you think your home is worth. Nor does it matter what your agent thinks or ten other agents just like her.

 The person whose opinion matters is the buyer who makes an offer. Pricing homes is part art and part science.

 It involves comparing similar properties, making adjustments for the differences among them, tracking market movements and taking stock of present inventory, all in an attempt to come up with a range of value, an educated opinion.

Call an MLS Realtor and save  yourself, lots of grief.
