You’re getting ready to sell your home but aren’t so sure how to price it. Not because you can’t find homes similar to yours to compare, but because your home has the most amazing mountain views or sits on an open space or has a really unique garage that will make a huge difference to your buyer.
How do you quantify that? How do you find comps for your special home?
So what makes your home special?
The list of special could be endless, but how do you find out how much it adds to your home’s value?
Typically finding comparable real estate sales involves finding homes that have similar square footage, bedrooms, baths and so on. Of course things like condition of the home versus condition of the comps is also taken into consideration.
Some things make it hard to find comps. Distance from one home to another in rural areas, special things like views and so on.
So how do you find a value for that?
You can stop and think about what it was worth to you when you purchased the home. Did it make you want to offer more for it than another similar home? Still not sure? Contact a Realtor in your area. A Realtor is more than aware of what makes your home special. They will also have an idea of what it adds to the value of your home.
Better yet, just list it without worrying about the special thing and then see what happens when homebuyers come calling. Your special thing will become what makes homebuyers offer more for your home than any another.
