Admittedly, setting the right price can be a bit tricky. You've invested money in your home and hopefully have great memories living in Berks County.
Most Berks County home buyers are more concerned about price than value. So the price you set can attract buyers or chase them away.

Even though we will help you set the price, you need to have your own idea of how much your property is worth. Here’s how to get it.

You Should Also Check the Internet
You can use the internet to a certain extent to get an idea of how much your home is worth. Just remember that this is an estimate and intended as a starting point. These estimates are based on your home’s square footage and real estate data such as recent home sales in your local market.
But these estimates can't take into account your unique situation. That's where we can help you fine tune your home's price based on our experience in the local Berks County real estate market.
Know Your Local History
What your home’s listing price should be largely depends on what similar homes, or “comps,” recently sold for in your area. To price your home, we will run the average sales prices of comps to assess your home’s value.
What constitutes a comp? A number of factors, including a home’s:
- Square footage
- Number of bedrooms and bathrooms
We will look into the difference between each comp’s listing price, and the price it sold for. Then we can consider price reductions and why they happened, if relevant. All the while, we will also rely on inside knowledge of housing stock and the local market. That nuanced understanding is invaluable, particularly when measuring the unique aspects of your home with raw data about comps.
