Every item and every service in our economy has a marketing cost built into the product. If you want to keep that fee, You will need to earn it. So be ready to market yourself and you home.
Job one is to set the price correctly. In todays troubled economic times setting a price is a challenge. County assessments are notoriously wrong and usually too high, because the county is only interested in tax money and most people do not protest their assessed value. The State of Colorado defines the price of a property as what a willing buyer, will pay a willing seller, in a reasonable amount of time. The only way to calculate that figure is to run all the sales comparables, and then add and subtract from the average price to see where you home should be priced at.
