You know that your home has a larger corner lot and you put in a new kitchen complete with granite and stainless steel appliances, after you moved in 5 years ago.
You seek out a realtor to help you with this process of selling your home. But why? you know what it will sell for. After all you can see the sales prices on line and you spoke to your neighbors.

You call and make the appointment you’re well prepared Realtor arrives with the last 6 months of sales data. They have the active listings, the pending homes, (Under contract working through escrow) and the solds. Homes that have sold within a mile or so of your home. Wait? what? How are homes very near mine on the market for over 60 days? Well, “That one sold but it had issues, it was practically falling down.” These are the types of denial you see when the market such as Denver stalls a bit. So, this brings us to the age old question. “What’s my home worth?” The truth of the matter is your home is worth whatever amount a willing and able buyer will pay. Now, how long you are willing to wait for that buyer (There is constant work and expenses on going while being on the market) In the mean time markets shift and alter according to buyers preference and what they may or may not be looking for.
It’s so important to really digest what’s going on today and the weeks moving forward. Days on Market can kill a home’s selling potential. The home requires careful timing with regards to when the home will hit the market. The staging and landscape determine how the home makes that so very important first impression.
