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

homes market value performed by a Realtor based on several
things in addition closed sales, they will factor in the

appraisal-most Realtors will however provide this service at no
cost to prospective new clients.
Accuracy is key in providing a CMA

good CMA, The Agent should be known for working extensively in
your area, Knowing which comps to select and assessing the
attributes of the comps, they will produce a truly accurate
analysis of the value of your home.

hopes of getting your business then go back and ask you to
reduce your asking price as the home has not sold. -The Agent

home below the actual market price. We suggest you check their
track record. Talk to their past clients and ask them if the
