How much is my property worth?

There are many elements that affect the value of your home, some under your control, but most are not.

The condition is certainly under your control:

What does it look like from the curb?
Is the landscaping attractive?
How is the paint?
Are there maintenance issues?
How is the roof, the plumbing, carpets, floors?

 The Furnishings:

While people are not buying your furniture, they do make a presentation. What do the draperies look like. Is the house clean, neat and sparsely decorated? Are you using neutral or vibrant colors? How about busy patterns?  The use of neutral colors are best when selling a property because they appeal to a broader group of buyers.  
The time of the year you decide to sell may, or may not, be under your control.

Other factors that are out of your control:
Blocks that make up your neighborhood:
Do they demonstrate pride of ownership? Are the neighbors improving their homes? Are your near distractions, like a freeway or an attractions, like a park or shopping?

Your city or community:
Are jobs moving in or out? Is it a well-run government?
A highly desirable location?

The general economy:
How is consumer confidence? How is the stock market? Is it an election year? What are interest rates?

Your competition:
It is more than just your direct neighbors. You competition is every house on the market in a fairly large area in your price range. What are the buyers other choices to spend their housing dollars?

Do the best you can with what you can control.
All the above information will help you make the best choice about price. Go for a price that is just over what other, similar homes have sold for and just under what your competition is asking.
