"Ray handled our property as a rental first, the tenants were interested in buying. Ray helped both sides come to an agreement on terms and helped us every step of the way. He kept us informed which to me is critical! It is a pet peeve of mine when realtors ignore you or only call when there is a problem. Ray was never 'that' realtor! It was simple and unstressful, how all transactions should be! One word AWESOME! Ray was the perfect person for the job, after I spoke with him I was sold!" Dawn Wilcox
"It was an excellent selection Mr Armstrong was the best Agent we have ever dealt with (in12 moves). He is very professional, knowledgeable, personable. He took everything and followed through and kept us completely informed. To sum it up, I just can't say enough good things about dealing with him. He is the best of the best. The type of Agent you could ever hope to have the pleasure to deal with in real estate. It was a very easy transition from listing to closing. We listed on Thursday and under contract on Sunday." Ken and Darlene Collette

You made buying a home so easy for my wife and I. We were grateful for how much patience you used in answering all of our questions and taking us to look at so many houses. You never pushed us into looking at something we were not interested in. We strongly recommend you to anyone looking at buying a new home.

Setting the Price

The price is the first thing buyers notice about your property. If you set your price too high, then the chance of alienating buyers is higher. You want your house to be taken seriously, and the asking price reflects how serious you are about selling your home.

Several factors will contribute to your final decision. First, you should compare your house to others that are in the market. If you use an agent, he/she will provide you with a CMA (Comparative Market Analysis). The CMA will reflect the following:

  • houses in your price range and area that were sold within the last half-year
  • asking and selling prices of houses
  • current inventory of houses on the market
  • features of each house on the market

From the CMA, you will learn the difference between the asking price and selling price for all homes sold, the condition of the market, and other houses comparable to yours.

Also, try to find out what types of houses are selling and see if it applies to your area. Buyers follow trends, and these trends can help you set your price.

Always be realistic. Understand and set your price to reflect the current market situation.
