Pricing Your Home To Sell in ANY Market isn’t rocket-science, yet so many people get it wrong. Today, when pricing a home it’s best to nail it straight out of the gate. No messing around. So, why not “test the market” with a high price? First, this method will add more time t the deal. Think about your house payment and the daily carrying costs. Add up expenses: mortgage, insurance, upkeep, taxes, etc and divide by 365 to see how much it costs to own that house while you fiddle with the price.
