Home’s Price Profile: 4 key factors that determine a home’s value

After you have optimized your Home’s Leverage Profile, your Agent influences the Home’s Price Profile in your favor. The Home’s Price Profile is determined during negotiation between the Buyer & Seller. The Price Profile is described by these 4 factors:

  • The List Price is the advertised price of a home. It should not be confused with a Market Price or Sold Price.
  • The Home’s Market Price is the expected sales price of what a ready, willing and able buyer will pay.
  • The Home’s Appraised Value, conducted by an independent professional on the Lender’s behalf, may affect the buyer’s ability to purchase.
  • The Home’s Sold Price is the negotiated price that the seller is willing to accept and a buyer will pay.
($) List Price 70% correlation (est.)
($) Market Price 90% correlation (est.)
($) Appraised Value 80% correlation (est.)
($) Sold Price 100% correlation (est.)
