Letter to a REALTOR® How much can I sell my home for in Springfield Missouri?

We get a lot of real estate questions and enjoy answering them. Here is an example:

 

Dear TeamKnowles,

I have a home in Springfield Missouri that I need to sell. Can you please give me an estimate of what my house is worth? It’s in a nice neighborhood and we have done some updates to it in the past couple of years. We bought it in 2007.

Sincerely,


Barbara C.

Springfield MO

 



Hi Barbara,

We would be happy to take a look at your home and give you an assessment of what we could sell it for. As you mention, the location does make a difference as does the current condition (updates). This also includes condition of the roof, foundation, hvac, floor coverings, kitchen, baths, and general condition of the rest of your property. Consider staging your home to help buyers see it's best features.


Some other factors that will affect your home’s value are square footage, room sizes, number of bedrooms and baths, floor plan, paint colors, landscaping/curb appeal, livability, and home staging. Are there any special features we should know about?

Something else that definitely affects your Springfield MO home's value is your competition.  In other words, what are similar homes currently selling for and listed for? It doesn’t matter what you paid or what you owe, what really matters is what buyers are currently paying in today’s market.  You didn’t mention your address but we can check and see if there are any foreclosures or short sales in your neighborhood which can hurt your value.  I’m not trying to discourage you, just making sure we have all the facts to make an accurate figure.

We would be glad to take a look at your home and give you a comprehensive CMA (comparable market analysis) of what the price should be if you want to sell in 30, 60, or 90 days.  If you owe more than your home is worth, we can walk you through the short sale process which can save your home from foreclosure.


The good news is, homes are selling in Springfield, Ozark, Nixa, and surrounding areas if they are priced accurately, are in good condition, and marketed aggressively! Give us a call today at 417-631-7234 and lets discuss your options!

Best Regards,

Betty & John Knowles
