It’s understandable that Sellers want the best price but it’s a common misunderstanding that a Realtor determines the price.  The marketplace will always determine the price!

Buyers, Sellers and professional Realtor’s® will factor all 4 Major Points on the Pricing Compass: Location, Condition, Pricing and Marketing. The location is a factor that Read the rest of this entry »

Judy Peterson Realtor Accredited Buyer Agent Prudential Fox Roach Devon Pa
