Do you really want to pay me to agree with you?
Wouldn't you prefer to actually sell your home?
I know you have a price in your head of what you think your home is worth.
Maybe you came up with it because you figured that you should get at least X% return after you've owned the home for a period of time... maybe you came up with it based on the replacement value your insurance policy says... or the price your home was appraised for... or the price the neighbor's or your friend's home sold for.
I hate to break the news to you, your home isn't necessarily worth any of those numbers.
Your home is pretty much worth what similar homes, of a similar size, in a similar location, in a similar condition sold for in the last few months and what homes in your price range a buyer could choose from instead of your home.
I am a professional, I do the analysis. I find those homes and I compare them to yours. I am not in love with your home, I don't have fond memories of it, I look at the cold, hard facts to come up with a price your home will likely sell for in a reasonable amount of time.
If the price you had in your head is too high and all I do is agree with you then here is what is going to happen...
I will spend my time and money working hard to market your home but no one will come because the home is overpriced.
You will sit around wondering why your home has not sold and when you can get on with your life.
And eventually one of two things will happen.
Either you will agree to drop the price to what the market is really willing to pay
You will fire me and find another agent who will agree with you and the process starts again.
It's your choice, you can expect me to agree with you
you can sell your home.
What's it going to be?
