How To Price a House To Sell Like Hotcakes

Putting a price tag on a home you’re trying to sell is a tricky thing. For one, it’s your home, crammed full of memories, hopes, and dreams—and all that stuff can cloud your thinking and lead you toward the wrong price. There are consequences: Shoot too high, and your home could languish on the market for months and maybe not sell at all. Price it too low and you could bilk yourself out of a whole lot of dough.

That’s why we’re here to guide you through this tough but critical decision; read on to pinpoint a price that’s just right.

Repeat after us: What you paid doesn’t matter
