Real estate is local, we have all heard this "ad infinitum" over the last few years. And every time a home sells and settles in Tredyffrin Easttown or in your development a new value is attributed to all the other homes nearby, up or down.
If there are lots and lots of homes for sale and lots of settlements we can get a very good idea what your home is worth in the near future. If there are not so many homes for sale, and fewer settlements it is more difficult setting a price.
There are many variables that go into setting a price for your home.
- How many other homes are for sale
- Curb appeal
- Number of bedrooms and bathrooms
- Heating source, gas, oil or electricity
- Size of plot
- Does it have a pool/tennis court
- Number of garages and parking spaces
- Time of year
- Are you still living there
- Has it been inspected prior to sale
- and many more
And there are some items that have no bearing on the price you will receive:
- What you paid for the house
- How much you spent on upgrades
- Those special faucets you installed
- The bay window
- How much you need so you can buy your next home
At the end of the day buyers will compare your home to others they have seen and decide which give them the best value in relation to their wish list of requirements. Most buyers recognize they need to be flexible and adjust to what is available at any given time, especially in a market thin on inventory. Occasionally a buyer walks in and falls in love with a house and the emotional component outweighs the practical. So somewhat you need to see a home through a buyers eyes not your own which over look the things you have learnt to live with every day.
The easiest thing you can do to increase the value of your home is to keep it clean and tidy whilst showing it for sale, but this has to be supported by a well maintained home that will make it through a home inspection without uncovering lots of costly issues.
