Century 21 Covered Bridges Realty Inc. of Bloomsburg is proud to announce that its agents have earned the nationally recognized Pricing Strategy Advisor (PSA) certification. The National Association of Realtors offers the PSA certification to Realtors as determining property values depends more than ever on professional expertise and competence, the best use of technology and a commitment to approach the pricing assignment from various perspectives.

"The market demands accurate property value assesments, so NAR is excited to provide Realtors with enhanced tools, education and experise to determine the most accurate value for a home an dgive their clients a leg up when buying or sellilng," said NAR President Tom Salomone.

The required coursework for the PSA certification provides Realtors with knowledge and skills to select appropriate comparables and make accurate adjustments, guide sellers and buyers through the details of comparative market analyses and the underlyicng pricing principles that inform them, and interact effectively with appraisers. Once awarded the certification, Realtors will be equipped to guide clients through the anxieties and misperceptions they often have about home values.

Working with a PSA adds valuable perspective to the transaction while taking the guesswork out of pricing. Buyers gain the confidence that the home they purchase has the most accurate price. When selling a property, sellers want to get the most from their investment, but determining the right price can be confusing. Working with a PSA gives sellers the confidence that their home is presented and sold at the most accurate price.
