Can the executor of an estate set the price of the real estate of the estate?

In New York an Executor can set the price of the real estate of the estate. However the price should be close or at the market value. Oftentimes in New York an Executor must have the sale approved by the Court. The Court will then look to see if the price is reasonable. The Executor will have to submit various documents to support his request to sell the real estate at the price s/he he set (i.e. appraisal, tax assessment, etc.) So, the answer is yes the Executor can set the price, but oftentimes subject to the approval of Surrogate's Court.
