What's the Best Way to Price my Olympic Peninsula Home?
Pricing your home can be tricky. It can become especially tricky when you live in an area as unique as the Olympic Peninsula. Real estate here is far different from many other communities.
There's a lot of beautiful custom homes and fewer neighborhoods of "cookie-cutter" houses where three or four floor plans are repeated over and over again. This makes pricing a puzzle, because how do you factor in all those custom features and special upgrades?
Homes with water views should be priced higher than mountain views. Both water views and mountain views should be priced higher than forest hideaways, unless the forest hideaway has actual timber value. Still with us?
Different designs and functionality of homes have different values depending where on the peninsula you are. For example, Victorian houses in Port Townsend are absolutely adored by homebuyers while houses with stairs in Sequim are much harder to sell. In Port Angeles, homes with stairways do just fine.
With all this to consider, you might be wondering how to price your Olympic Peninsula home...
Get Help From the Experts
Pricing your home is a delicate game. Some sellers get poor advice, and do what I call the trifecta of selling sabotage: they overprice, slash the realtor's commission (meaning the agent is less motivated to show the home to buyers), and refuse to make necessary repairs. When it comes to pricing, most real estate agents will give you an opinion of a price range that is most likely to sell your house. It’s natural to want to start at the high end of that range so long as you are prepared to adjust accordingly.
The first step to selling your home is to price it correctly.
