How much is my home worth? As you can imagine, this is probably one of the first questions that I routinely receive from a homeowner who is thinking about selling a home in Coral Springs or anywhere for that matter. Price points will be considered when setting a price to sell a home in Coral Springs. As I discuss each month, these price points can tell you where there are a lot of Buyers looking in a particular range and are willing to pay that price thereby, increasing the chance of your home being sold. During June, you’ll find the most heavily populated price points are those listed below. For example, from the list below, if your home’s value was near the $400,000 price point and you were to price your home at $399,999 or just below, you’d have a much greater chance of reaching more Buyers compared to pricing your home immediately at $400,000 or just above. Pricing at the right price point can elicit multiple offers driving up the ultimate sale price of your home. This is why I can’t stress it enough on the importance of pricing your home right, at the beginning. Thinking you can always reduce it later if your home doesn’t sell, statistically will result in a lower sales price and take longer to sell. I can speak to you further on this point, just call me.
Not sure of where you should price your home; If you want to know, please contact me for a complimentary valuation of your home. As I say, again and again: Pricing your Coral Springs’ home to sell

$200,000 -$249,999 18
$250,000 -$299,999 27
$300,000 -$399,999 46
