Selling Price Incentives

An attractive selling price is the first feature that a potential buyer will notice. You must be willing to negotiate the selling price. If your home matches the other homes in your neighborhood, then your asking price must be comparable or you can set the price a little lower. However, if your home has more amenities than those around you, then you should set your asking price a little higher. Whether you are selling your home in Lower/Upper Hermosa or in La Jolla Alta, setting your selling price just a few thousand dollars off will definitely get the attention of buyers.
