Before setting your asking price, think about what you can get out of selling for an investor…
Understanding The Asking Price
Your asking price is basically just the starting pint of the negotiation. Even if you sell to someone by listing your house on the market through a real estate agent, your asking price will be the starting point and the buyer will surely negotiate a lower price.

You will also have to pay a hefty agent commission.
Your asking price has all of these “built to it”.
