We welcome the opportunity to serve you. Please contact me with any questions you may have, should they arise now or anytime down the road.

There are a few ways to determine the value of your home.
1) Get an appraisal
An appraisal is a licensed Appraisers professional study of a property's market value, based on recent closed sales of similar properties, comparing location, square footage and construction, quality & condition. An appraisal costs the homeowner on average about $350- $450.

2) Have a Realtor provide you with a CMA
A comparative market analysis or "CMA" is a projection of a homes market value performed by a Realtor based on several things in addition closed sales, they will factor in the following:
               -Similar properties now for sale at the time as your competition.
               -Similar homes that failed to sell.
               -Seasonal and economic conditions of the current real estate market.
               -Condition of the home and improvements to the home.
A CMA is a more accurate valuation estimate vs. an appraisal. Producing an accurate CMA is much more involved then an appraisal-most Realtors will however provide this service at no cost to prospective new clients.

Accuracy is key in providing a CMA

-Some agents will produce an aggressively high CMA value in hopes of getting your business then go back and ask you to reduce your asking price as the home has not sold. -The Agent may not be experienced with the area and suggest you list you home below the actual market price.
