What’s My Home Worth?
If you are thinking about selling but want to know about much you will get from the sale of your home first, you may be tempted to check online. But did you know the values you can easily find online for your home may be off by thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, of dollars?
Why? These values are ascertained by a computer which can compare things like bedrooms, bathrooms, square footage, and location with other local sales. But a computer can’t value the emotional impact an amazing kitchen remodel can have on a potential buyer. Computers can’t put a dollar figure on a waterfront property that reminds a potential buyer of her childhood vacation home. The value of a property is so much more than plusses and minuses in someone’s computer code.
In our opinion, determining accurate market value for a property can really be done by a human real estate professional with local expertise.
If you are thinking about selling, you need real numbers to make an informed decision regarding your next step.
