Selling Your Viera, Florida Home - Do the facts support the logic?

When it is time to sell your home remember the home buyer pool is the most educated and sophisticated group of real estate consumers ever.  

Just the sheer quantity of real estate sales information available to the general public allows prospective home buyers to have current information at their disposal when they walk through your front door.  Granted some of the information on the Internet is inaccurate, dated and just plain wrong - especially much of what comes off the mega-real-estate websites like Zillow 

Even public sites like property appraiser and tax officials often have less current information.  The solution - call a local Realtor who has access to the most current information on the MLS system.

As you approach selling your Viera, Florida home, consider these:
  • If you believe your home is the nicest house in the neighborhood, you are probably normal  That is the reason many of the sellers I deal with in Brevard County explain to me on my initial visit why their home is better than the rest. 
  • If you believe your assumed to be “nicest home in the neighborhood” will sell for significantly more than any other house in the neighborhood, your thinking is likely not completely logical If your house is twice the size of the rest of the homes, has the largest lot or is the only one with a pool, maybe it is an over improved property?

Here is my suggestion....Ask your real estate agent (or email me) what
  1. is on the market
  2. has recently sold
  3. is under contract and, more importantly, 
  4. what has expired in your neighborhood.   
You, in consultation with your Realtor, will then have the necessary facts to make a logical assessment of your home's value in your local market and establish a listing price.
