From the moment you decide to list your Chetek WI home, your to-do list instantly grows. Not only do you need to tackle any necessary repairs and stage the property before buyers walk through the front door, but you’ll need to find the best possible price to spark their interest. Pricing is key when it comes to the success of a home sale and if you overreach, you could risk buyers passing over your home entirely.
Below are three factors (or to-do’s!) you must consider when pricing your Northwestern Wisconsin home:
The real estate market is always changing, as you may know, so it’s important to factor in what similar properties in the area have sold for in recent months. Look at sales within the past three months to get a better idea of how the market is behaving— if you go back too far, you will find sales that reflect an outdated and much different market. Your real estate agent can pull a list of comparable homes that have sold around your property.
Your fixtures and finishes
Do not underestimate the power of your fixtures and finishes in your Chetek WI home. Buyers will be looking for relatively newer and neutral fixtures as opposed to those that haven’t been updated since your home was built. Keep in mind if your home has not been updated, it may not sell for as much as comparable properties that have. If you’re able, consider making small updates before listing your home.
While the home a few streets over may have the same number of bedrooms as yours, even similar square footage, it’s precise location can make a difference. Remember, even the smallest of market traits will affect a property’s value. Factors like the school district, year built and lot size of a property can all cause its property value to differ from yours, so be sure to keep an open mind and listen your real estate agent.
