Atlas Real Estate Group Broker, Ed Reynolds is a featured commentator in a Global Real Estate Education Network (GREEN) article about coping with a surprise listing or sales price in your neighborhood. The article features a number of tips on how to approach comparison values that seem to put your home at a disadvantage.
“Ed Reynolds, an associate broker with Atlas Real Estate Group in Denver, Colo., also suggests a homeowner and their salesperson go to any and all open houses in the neighborhood to understand firsthand what the differences are between the house listed and their own. Seeing room sizes, layout, and condition in person is worth more than any virtual tour and MLS description. And still another idea is to go through public records for houses sold and look for any sales that weren’t in the area MLS for whatever reason and take them into account when coming up with a listing price.”
