SELLING YOUR HOUSE

Physician's Money Digest, May 31 2003, Volume 10, Issue 10

With home prices heating up, theprice you think you can get for yourhome may be too low. Before you callin a real estate agent, it helps to knowwhat other homes in your area areselling for. To get an idea, visitwww.realtor.com for a listing of housesfor sale in your town. Comparehouses that are similar to yours. Lookfor houses with the same number ofbedrooms and bathrooms and thesame extras (eg, central air, in-groundpool, fireplaces, etc). If your neighborsare asking more than you thinkyour home is worth for a house that'svery similar, you can probably ratchetup your asking price a notch.
