Selling a home can be an emotional time. Maybe you've raised a family there or made improvements to make it uniquely yours.
However difficult the break may be, there is strong evidence that putting emotion aside when setting your listing price will expose your home to more buyers. If you price your home at just
10% above what analysis of the market says it should be,
only 30% of potential buyers will look at your home.
Though rare, there are unique circumstances that would support listing above market price for a comparable home. If in doubt about your final decision, take into account your personal circumstances: Do you have a time deadline to meet? Do you need money from the sale for immediate use? If so, listing at a competitive price is your best chance to get the most "eyes" on your home, and offers a better chance of selling in your desired time frame.
