Another major issue for anyone selling a property is how much to ask for. Although you may have an idea of how much your house is worth, it's important to have your home evaluated by a professional on its own merits. Be careful not to price your property too high or too low. If it's too high, there's no sale; too low and you lose on your investment. A REALTOR® has the research and expertise to provide a market assessment of what similar properties in your area have sold for. They can also provide information on market history, such as the number of properties sold in your community the previous month or year.
