Who Really Sets The Price On A Home For Sale In Springfield MO?
Your first impulse may be to say the OWNER of the home sets the price. This is true, the owner has the final say on whether or not to accept an offer - if they get an offer that is.
Does the BUYER set the price? A home will only sell for what someone is willing to pay for it so buyers do have a lot of input.
What about the APPRAISER? If a house sells for more than it appraises for, you've got trouble. You may be able to get a second appraisal or you may have to come up with the difference or abandon the deal.
How about the MARKET? Yes that's it! It doesn't matter what your friends and neighbors think, it doesn't matter what you owe on it, and it doesn't even matter what you paid for the house.
A home's value is determined by what the market will bear under current conditions including interest rates, the home's condition, neighborhood or location, and supply of comparable homes on the market. The selling price of Springfield MO Homes is also strongly affected by what other homes are selling for including short sales, foreclosures, and resales. Let's get together and discuss what your home is worth!
