About Home Valuations
Many popular real estate sites use Automated Valuation Models (AVM) to estimate the price of your home. These models use historical statistics based upon similar homes to determine a price range. Just because two homes may be in the same neighborhood, have the same number of bedrooms, and be the same size does not mean that the prices of the homes will be similar. Many factors go into pricing a home, including the property's condition (both inside AND out), lot characteristics, latest market conditions, amenities, and even intangible factors. Having a real estate professional evaluate your property is the best way to receive the most accurate estimate of your home's value. To receive an estimate for your home, fill out the form above to receive a free, no obligation Comparative Market Analysis (CMA).
Keep in mind that your home is one of the most valuable assets you own. Even if you are not considering the sale of your property, a CMA is a great way to understand the equity you have accumulated in your home, which can be useful for financial planning.
