When you're thinking of

You don't determine the highest price, the market determines it. Not sure what you mean by placing a cap on what the seller could receive.

The market determines the price by the comps I research.

There is no "cap" the market pays what the market is willing to pay. I sold a home in 2001 that went $350,000 over asking in Palo Alto. No cap!

The market determines the value by the price they are willing to pay. The cap is set by what a buyer is willing to pay.  In my market it is common for homes to sell for thousands over asking / list price.   Homes that are over priced sit on the market ... waiting for one price reduction after another.

1. We can only estimate the max market value for a property based on recent sales, adjustments to same, etc. The market will make the final call.
2. We couldn't if we wanted to. What if there are multiple offers? What if the deal was retooled to include an improvement that wasn't originally conveying? Maybe an adjacent parcel? OR . . . what if the seller is contributing to the buyer's costs, and the purchase price was raised to include that?
We want the seller to net the highest possible number, of course.
What is your reason for asking this question? Maybe in a different context, the answer may vary.

I do a cma and provide a range of value to my clients. Then we jointly determine what makes sense in current market conditions. What do you mean by a "cap?" Who am I to tell a seller they can't get more than "x?" We have no price police here in Charlotte! The market will determine, at the end of the day, what a seller will get for their "asset" and an appraiser will determine if that is fair value for the mortgage.

Why place a cap?  Do you stop the auction when you feel the bid is high enough or do you keep pushing to see what they buyers are willing to pay.

All that any of us can do is suggest a starting price.

You would do a market evaluation on the property. Then recommend listing at that price and generally the seller will want to list a little higher. I am not sure what you mean by cap, but I would never put a cap on the amount the  my seller can receive for the sale.  Their home is only going to sell for what the market can bear.

Myers Jackson I can determine the highest possible market value based on comparable properties with appropriate adjustments that have recently sold. The highest possible market price is based on property demand in a specific market. My recommended list price is always based on the comparable data whereas the final price is based on the market.

Homes sell above list all the time.  Sometimes well above it, even when priced right or even a little over where I'd think they should be.

Market knowledge and current competition has a lot to do with it. Given that condition is not at issue and we've come to terms on price a cap is irrelevant.

Why would you do that?  I looked to see what profession you are in & most people here are assuming you are in real estate.

You have to look for comparable properties & work for your client to get him top dollar. Go do that.

Being in auctions, you have the perfect way to determine that!  However, even in listing properties, if the market determines the price is a great deal, then you'll get multiple offers, creating an auction type atmosphere.

I never place a cap on anything, in the end what a property is worth will be determined what a buyer is willing to pay for it. I use a set of comparable sales, let them know the homes high value, what to ask and what the possible selling price will be.

We don't make that determination - the market does!  Buyers often pay more than list price, whether the seller has priced it above or at their 'market value' opinion.

 CMA for cookie-cutter houses in subdivisions with several recent sales.

Appraisal for hard to comp properties (or stubborn sellers).

Cap on what they can receive?  Not sure what you mean by that, Myers.  "Net Listings" are illegal in most states; I don't think that is what you meant.  Cap on list price, yes.

Well I research comps and discuss the market with the seller so they can determine what they think is a fair price at which to list their home. I don't have any business placing a cap on what the seller can receive.

By a market comparison and what is trending it that area and type of home. There have been times when the market in the 'moment' is saying say 500K but I know market is trending up in price and buyer demand is strong. Multiple bids are a big possibility in these cases and who knows how high a buyer will go up in price to procure the home of their dreams.

You suggest a price for your seller based on market analysis. The marketing strategy adopted is something your seller approves. Typically the asking price is what the market determines the property should sell for. Sometimes we take listings where sellers are "testing" the market above a known sales price - but this is not advised. Taking a listing below market value can result in multiple offers which drive the price up. We try to get the best possible price at the best possible terms for our sellers - but this is market driven.

Would you place a cap on what the seller could receive?

I don't have to. The buyer(s) or lender will.

What I must do is determine is this is a real seller. Inspired pricing does not translate to 'motivated seller.'

However, being able to determine the ceiling price for a community is possible.

I tell them I will charge X% listing commission based on my through analysis with adjustment and measurement of home.

Someone wants more than the market price I will charge Y% for additional marketing cost (Y>X). My valuation is top in the area. Last 3 years I did not have a single lender disagree with my analysis. 

Any sold price higher than appraised value is a result of staging, features and aggressive marketing. You want to hear what you think and not open to local expert input. Go get a license.
