This community familiarity is just part of HomeLife’s™ commitment to customer service.

Comparative Market Analysis
Maximizing Market Value

The preparation of a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) is an important tool HomeLife™ Higher Standards™ sales representatives use to help sellers earn the highest price for a home. CMA’s involve looking at public records of real estate businesses in the community to better understand market conditions. There are four steps taken by a sales representative to prepare a home’s CMA:

  • A HomeLife™ sales representative will consider the amount paid for at least three recently sold homes in the community. These homes are comparable in size and, together, comprise a factual record of what buyers will pay.
  • The next step is to consider the asking prices of at least three properties presently listed in the community. Because these homes are similar to the one for sale, each operates as a benchmark against which the home will be priced.
  • A HomeLife™ sales representative then considers the asking prices of at least three houses in the community that went unsold for at least 90 days. Such homes illustrate the dangers of overpricing a property.
  • Then, such pricing information is gathered to arrive at an ideal asking price for a home to be sold.

Pricing Pyramid
How Price Affects Buyer Interest

When a home is priced above its market value, fewer buyers will show interest. In contrast, when a home is priced below market value, the number of interested buyers increases. In the end, the price set and interest created should reflect the seller’s goals.
