What’s Your Home Worth?

What’s Your Home Worth?

Maybe you’re thinking of selling, maybe you’re thinking of refinancing, or maybe you’re just curious about the market. But the question is, “What is your home worth?”

A simple question should be returned with a simple answer, right? Well unfortunately, determining the value of your home–or any home for that matter–can be a tricky process. Nowadays there are endless websites that will promise you a fast answer with fancy charts and graphs. As tempting as it may be to trust this information, be wary of letting a computer program tell you what your largest investment is worth.

The trouble with these websites is that they have little to no local market information. The websites are not aware that a new park is being built in the neighborhood. They are not aware that a four-lane highway is being re-routed. In addition, they are not aware that you’ve lovingly cared for and maintained your home.

Therefore, the bottom line is this: If you’re serious about getting an informative valuation for your home contact a local real estate professional. These professionals work with the actual people who will ultimately determine the value of your home–the home buyer themselves. This is their profession and therefore they will be happy to sit with you and explain the current market conditions that affect your home value.
