There’s no shortage of advice online about the best time to list, and it all goes something like this: The majority of home sales occur when the weather heats up, and homes sold during this time of year tend to attract high prices.

FIVE REASONS TO SELL YOUR HOUSE WITH NW REAL ESTATE - THE CASCADE TEAM

 In today's market there is plenty of chatter about how strong the market it, how little inventory is and how hard it is for buyer's to find a home. It would make one think that putting sign out in the their front yard would be all they needed to do.

Do your research, choose your listing price, and watch the buyers line up.

Unlike the cost of a gallon of milk or a flat-screen television, a home’s price can be hard to pin down. It’s complicated because each home is unique, and has its own story to tell.

When it comes to setting the price of a house, the only thing to do is to look at the recent sales and active listings of similar homes in your area. Combine this research with the inside market knowledge of a local real estate agent, and you can confidently choose your list price.

Here are some guidelines to keep in mind when determining how much to ask for your house.

Make sure to look at recent comps

Markets change fast, so it’s best to find comparable sales within the past

Observations about aging and housing needs…

As a part of the Boomer generation I’m seeing a lot of my peers making or

preparing to make changes in their lifestyles and living arrangements. I’ve

watched the generation before us very closely and have seen many approaches to

tackling these looming decisions: what to do when it is time to downsize, when

you no longer want the maintenance and upkeep of a large home/property, when

you want to be free to travel and not be tied down to The House?

Here are some of the successful scenarios I’ve witnessed among friends, clients,

acquaintances:

[Usually the steps toward a new path entail a decision to sell the primary

residence, typically the “family home” where they’ve lived a great
