The facts I am speaking of are the comparables ("comps").
Comparables serve as a reality check. Within a given neighborhood or area (like Viera or Suntree) there is a limit to what a buyer will pay for any given property.
Valid comps include a couple of key characteristics.
- Physical traits. Homes in close proximity to the subject property possessing similar qualities like age, square footage, materials similar such as wood frame or concrete, same bedroom count, garage size, views and the like.
- Circumstances. Often called arms length transactions, these are sales where there is no special circumstances or financing. No distressed sale, no special relationships (selling to son or daughter), no liquidation quick sales, etc.
At time I think buyers appreciate these facts more than sellers. And then sometimes I think sellers appreciate these facts more than buyers.
