Home Pricing and its Relationship to Buyer Activity

When choosing a list price for your home, realize that the price you choose will have a direct impact on the buyer activity and response.  In today’s real estate market it is important to list your home right at the market.  Your list price should be indicated by what similar homes have sold for not homes that are actively listed or homes that have expired unsold.
