You want houses for sale in Los Angeles, so you’ve interviewed three different agents, and each of them has recommended a different price.
If they’re all within a few thousand dollars, they’re all giving you an honest opinion. They probably just used slightly different homes when making their comparisons. You should choose the agent whose attitude, manner, and marketing plan appeals to you.
If one is dramatically higher than the others, that agent is probably trying to “buy your listing.” That’s a common practice used by agents who simply want more listings – and who don’t care how disappointed you’ll be when you finally learn the truth about your home’s true market value.
Houses for sale in Los Angeles Constantly Have Competition
But why not see for yourself?
Look at the homes those agents have used for comparisons to yours and go see the ones that are your current competition. Visit the open houses in your neighborhood and in neighborhoods that are most like yours. Set aside your feelings about your home and think about it in comparison to the other houses for sale in Los Angeles.
As you do so, remember that these houses for sale in Los Angeles are your current competition. Should you choose to ignore advice from your agent and list at a significantly higher price than homes that really are comparable to yours, you’ll be in for a disappointment.
