Reasons For Overpricing Your Home
Improvements should be made for enjoyment, not just for resale. You cannot add an item to a home, select it to your style, use it and then expect a buyer to pay the original cost.
An owner’s need for money does not increase the value of the home nor does a buyer care about how much you need to walk away with.
Buying In A Higher Priced Area
Values are location specific. High values in the destination, the location to which you are moving, do not increase the value of the home you are selling.
High Original Purchase Price
Chances are you paid market value for your home and the market may have changed. It is not that you paid too much but rather, that the market has since experienced significant change. This is not a reason to ask a higher price.
Lack Of Factual Data
Base your opinion of value on recent documented sale prices.
Buyers may offer low, but they will do that at any price. It is easier to negotiate up to fair market value than to an inflated price.
You are not really motivated to move but, if you got the right price, you would move. It is important to price correctly to preserve your marketing opportunities when and if the move becomes urgent.
