How Much is Your Home Worth

How Much is Your Home Worth?

Thinking of selling?

If you are considering selling your Oak Park or River Forest home, the most important thing to know is how much your house is worth. Home buyers are always trying to get the lowest price possible and you must know that your home is priced according to market value so you can be confident that you will sell your home and get the price that it is worth.

Your Comparitive Market Analysis

Letting me do a quick Comparitive Market Analysis (CMA) for you is the perfect way to find out what your home is worth. I will do research on homes that have sold within the last six months in the area as well as what is currently on the market in order to get a feel for what is happening in the real estate market in your neighborhood.  Comparing your house to similar houses that have sold recently is the best way to help me determine what your house is worth.  It is difficult to compare a tri-level home to a single-story home or a condo to a 200 acre farm. Listings can also vary greatly from neighborhood to neighborhood. I search for recently sold homes that closely match your home's profile in order to make an informed decision on your property's worth.

Making sure the price is right

By far one of the worst home selling mistakes a seller can make is hanging the wrong price tag on their home. If a home is priced too high, buyers won't look at it. If it's priced too low, you could be unnecessarily giving away profits. Pricing a home is both a science and an art. The Comparative Market Value is just one important piece in the puzzle. I also take into consideration market movement, demand and supply and the home's location and condition when I analyze your home's value. Often sellers who want to "Test the market" by overpricing their house and seeing what's out there, get stung when they have to reduce the price. As a top Realtor I can give you a free estimate of what your home is worth and your best listing price in todays market.
