Setting Your Kelowna Home List Price Requires Calculation and Savvy

When you're having a garage sale in Kelowna, one of the toughest tasks is pricing your
items. If you put a price tag on your old golf clubs that’s too high, no one will
buy them. If you make the price too low, they might sell quickly, but you’ll
spend the rest of the day wondering if you could have gotten more!
It's similar to selling your home in Kelowna — except with your home, the stakes are
much higher. You want to price your property to sell, but you don’t want to
leave any money on the table.
How do you accomplish that?
Setting the right list price for your home requires a combination of skilled
calculation and industry savvy from realtors like Rob Dion & Lee Ivans.
Let's start with the "calculation" part...
When you work with me, I'll review recently sold properties that are similar
to yours in type, size, features and location. Then, using that data, we’ll
calculate a range that represents your property's "current market value."
For example, consider a spacious 20-year-old rancher in a nice
neighbourhood like Glenmore. If similar homes in the area have sold for $575,000-
$650,000 in the last six months, then it's obvious that your home should sell
in that range too. A list price above or below that range would be in the
danger zone.
But skilled calculation is only half the task.
Setting your list price also requires expertise in the local real estate market, combined
with good old-fashioned gut instinct. That instinct comes from being on the
front lines of many property transactions in the Kelowna area.
That's why working with a good real estate salesperson is so important,
when you’re deciding on the list price for your home.
