Q. How do I set the right price to sell my home?
A. Like many home sellers, you might have a price in mind that is too high. You need the knowledge of a REALTOR® to give you a more realistic opinion. Here's what you should do:

• Ask your REALTOR® for a "total market overview."What's happening in general in the economy and the real estate market?
• Get the facts for your neighborhood. What homes have or haven't sold in the last 6-12 months, and did the sales include short sales or foreclosures?
• Work with your REALTOR® to set the right price from the start. If you start too high, you may keep buyers away. If you lower your price in increments, it may be too late. Timing is key and buyers may already have purchased another home.
