Deciding to Sell Your Home

For most families, their home is their largest financial asset and the decision to sell sets off a chain of thoughts, questions and concerns. Whatever your reasons for selling you will need an experienced agent with the knowledge to give you wise council to enable you to get the best price.

Pricing your home property is a skill that combines a strong knowledge of past market facts, with an appreciation for predicting future trends.  Some of the factors to be considered include:

Price:  The price should reflect the location and condition of your home, considering current market conditions.
