Many rookie real estate investors make the mistake of overpricing their properties when all the work is done.

The bottom line: If you want a successful listing that produces multiple offers, you must price your property correctly. Additionally, an overpriced investment property will sit on the market too long and tie up your money.

The tried and true method for pricing your flips correctly is to find reliable comps in your property’s neighborhood–and the best way to do that is to work with a Realtor(R).

You can also check the market yourself periodically, while you’re fixing up the property. If you do, keep your search for reliable comps to properties that sold in the last 6 months (or less). Also, try and list your flips at the average market value for the particular neighborhood you’re selling in. If you overprice your flips, you will generate little attention from buyers, and the longer your property sits on the market, the less likely you are of receiving an offer at or above your list price.
