  • How will you reach prospective buyers?

  • What measures will you take to make sure I stay informed?
  • What is your overall marketing plan?

But what many people do not realize is that a listing price that is set too high is just as big a mistake. In fact, properties with high listing prices get fewer buyers expressing interest, take longer to sell, and ultimately tend to sell for under the market value! I can help you make sure your listing price is fair, and aligned with market trends.
