Default Thinking of selling my House

Thinking of selling my House. I built it in 2000, and my kids have grown up there, so it may be hard, but I'm ready. it's 2000 sq feet, and has a 2000 sq foot shop, with R.v. cover parking, it's foamed and brand new electricity. The house has hard wood and tile. gas [propane] tankless water heater,updated kitchen, water softener, 3 bedrooms,2 bath,garage was closed in with central heat and air. Large covered back porch. aerobic septic,large trees. Tons of deer. there is a city water well on the back of the property.it is in Hudson Oaks city limits. I have no idea what I should ask in price. Everything around me is selling for 350k to 450k but the house across street is being listed for 640k. what do y'all think? I will post pics in a bit

Find a good realtor....one that actually sells houses in your area.

Where are you going?

Good luck!

If you are wanting to try and do it on your own, I would pay for an appraisal. They can do a verbal pretty cheap, like $2-300 and you have a really good idea of value.

I left out that Last year I did have it appraised for $310k, but the market has sky rocketed in our area since then.

Last house we sold, we did it by owner. Not hard to come up with a fair price...start high, you can always haggle down (especially when there's an extra 6% your gonna get to keep). In this market, I would try that first. Worked good for us because after the sign was out for a few weeks, a realtor came by and offered to do it for 3%! It's all negotiable. Told him I'd call him in a month or two but it sold. Just took everything to the title company and they took care of everything. I think it was around $300-$400. It's a seller's market!

Appraisals are CHEAP if you miss guessing your value more than $500. I would get another one. Call the same appraiser back and ask what an updated appraisal will cost.

I sold my place in Caddo Mills last year for $345,000. Personally I thought it was worth about $250,000. The realtor said about $310,000. I kind of checked out some of the other properties around me and then priced it high. It took about 45 days to get the offer but hey I was more than fine with that considering the price that it bought.

Appraised by a realtor or the County. If the County you might as well throw that paper away, its junk and no where near indicative of the market value, then or now.

Price it high, see what happens. If it doesn't sell, your move. If it does, great.

I have a good realtor and know a guy looking for a house in that area. Let me know when you know what you want for it.

Realtors(help) buy and sell houses every day. They do a lot more for you than stick a sign in the yard and pictures on the internet...especially once you have a contract. It's worth paying a professional to make sure everything is done right.

Now making sure you find a really good Realtor is a little different story.

Is this on acreage? $200/sqft seems quite high. You can live in a nice part of Dallas for that kind of money. That being said, I know nothing about Hudson Oaks.

You need to check comps in the area to see sold prices to judge well. Unfortunately a realtor is the only way to get that.

FSBO is good, if you want to leave a money on the table. PM me if you haven't found a Realtor and let's talk and I will see what we can do to sell your house.

I too wanted to sell our place, getting to the point we could triple our money but then we realized we wouldn’t be able to afford an upgrade. So just make sure you have a place to land once it sells.
