Selling your home in the real estate market involves several things including coming up with the correct market price. Finding this correct market price may be hard as it is dependent on many factors like the location, how long it has been there, the current market price in the area among other things.

Get an appraised value

The reason being the lender will want to be sure that should the borrower default then they can recover their money or even more by selling the property. The appraisal report will help you come up with the correct price. A home inspection report will also help one to gauge the price they will want to sell their home at. If the house needs many repairs then you would rather incur the cost of repairs rather than having your house discounted because of that.

Compare prices of the other property

Expected developments in the area

If there are prospects of future developments like an expansion of the roads, it would mean something major may come up, and then you will be forced to consider this in your price.

Consider the cost of rebuilding

This will help you in finding out whether the price you are settling for is worth. Find out how much material you would need, the cost of acquiring and transporting the material and also the cost of labor. You may need to involve contractors on this so that they can give you an almost accurate position on the same. This will give you a rough estimate of what it would cost you. Use this to match the price you will consider. Also, include the cost of the land which will have appreciated from the time you bought
