Pricing your home for sale is something that Realtors do on a daily basis and why you need to work with a Realtor.
Your Realtor will first take a complete inventory of what features your Crystal Beach/Palm Harbor Florida home has to offer. Naturally the number of bedrooms and bathrooms as well as the square footage plays a role in the price but there are so many other factors that are involved. Have you updated the kitchen and bathrooms? How about those appliances? How old is the air conditioning system? Did you just get a new compressor or was the entire system replaced? How about the roof? How old is it and when you updated the roof, did you do it recently enough that it meets the newer hurricane safety standards? The same applies to the cage around your pool - is it up to par with the latest code for hurricane winds?
There are many other factors involved. The flooring is extremely important. Most people today do NOT want carpeting in any rooms except perhaps the bedrooms. I remember in the sixties, shag carpeting in the bathrooms was the thing. Today people realize that carpet hides so many organisms that they generally don't want it in the house. When was the last time the house was painted - inside and out? What do the gutters look like? How about the landscaping?
This may sound like an enormous laundry list but they are ALL items your Realtor takes into consideration when pricing your home for sale. Remember, this information as well as what other homes in the area have sold for, is all combined to reach that magic number. It is a process that takes a little time and the better you have cared for your castle, the higher that number is going to be.
