Top 5 Factors that Can Affect Your Sales Price

One of the most significant factors that can affect the sales price of your home is its location. Homes in desirable areas with good schools and access to amenities like parks, shopping centers, and public transportation tend to sell for more than homes in less desirable areas.  As local area experts, The Zahn Group can analyze your home’s location and give you insight into the price you can expect to sell for.

Homes located near a Whole Foods or Trader Joe's can have a higher value, with a 2015 study by Zillow finding that homes near a Whole Foods or Trader Joes appreciated on average 148% and 140% respectively as opposed to the average 71% appreciation by a typical US home over the same time period.

According to the National Bureau of Economic Research, a Starbucks within a quarter-mile radius can increase home values by 0.5%!


The condition of your home is another critical factor that can impact its sales price. The Zahn Group can provide guidance on what repairs or upgrades are necessary to improve your home’s condition and increase its value.  We provide our clients with references for reputable contractors who can help with any repairs or upgrades you choose to make on your home.   We also can provide a staging consult to propose ideas to showcase your home’s best features and attract potential buyers.

A study by The National Association of Realtors found that staging a home can increase its sales price by up to 10%
