How much is my home worth? What should I ask? How long will it take to sell?

How much is my home worth? What should I ask? How long will it take to sell?

The best way to determine your home’s value is by comparing it to the current market. This can be done with a Comparative Market Analysis, (CMA).  A CMA will show what homes have sold for like yours using location, age, size, construction, style, condition, and other factors for the subject property. Financial adjustments may need to be made to make the home as equal as possible. Looking at properties that have recently sold will enable you to see what home sellers in your area have actually received over the last few months. It is also important to note that these selling prices are used by lending institutions to determine how much they will lend buyers for a home like yours. The CMA will also show what homes are currently on the market similar to your home. Looking at the properties currently for sale will enable you to assess the alternatives that a serious buyer has to choose from. It will also help to ensure that you do not underprice or overprice your property. It is important to work with your Realtor® to decide what the asking price should be based on the current market conditions.

Another important factor is that it will also show approximately how long it may take to sell. This is important in allowing you to plan the timing of your move.

Not all real estate agents are the same. There are millions in the market today and their experience and dedication to their profession and clients can vary widely. If you are serious about selling we would be happy to prepare a Comparative Market Analysis for you at no cost to you.
