PRICE AND CURB APPEAL ARE A WINNING COMBINATION BY FRED CARVER P.R.E.C. So many home sellers in Victoria ask me “What does it take to sell my home for the most money and quickly?”  Pricing a home is not something to take lightly..1st Pricing a home for Sale is not about home much you want or need. Getting Top Dollar simply means listing your home based on the current market values (price range) of similar homes that are selling for in your neighbourhood, Be sure your Realtor does an up todate Current Market Analysis known as a CMA.  Tip: If Your Home is not getting any showings and your curb appeal is Good, then in Victoria we know you need to adjust you asking price about 10%, Getting Showings..
