Pricing your home right
Of course, when you go to sell your home you want the best price possible. There are many “YES” real estate agents out there that will simply agree to your “wish” price. Hiring that “YES” agent will only end up costing you valuable time, money and stress.
Be seen in search results

Over pricing a home will result in many potential buyers missing out on ever seeing your home for sale in their search results.
