Real Estate Today By DICK ROZyNEK, GUI Realtor Wrong Pricing Logic If you try to sell your house yourself, how do you set a realistic price? Most people base their price tags on the only facts known to them: original price, cost of improvements, and hoped-for profit. Then they adjust to bring their figure in line with what they think similar houses are bringing. Sounds reasonable, but three of the basic facts are ir- revelent, and the fourth is highly dubious. The original price, improvements^ and hoped - for profit only determine whether you gain or lose, but they have nothing to do with the right price to produce a sale. Prices of other houses may give you some clue to the market, but most of the time you only hear of the asking price. If it's not a realistic price, it won't be the selling price. How then do you set a realistic price? By consulting a local Realtor whose business it is to know how much property can bring and will bring. His knowledge of the market is in- invaluable.
