That is the number one question that homeowners are concerned with when selling their home. And that makes sense. We all want to yield as much from a home sale as possible. The answer is actually pretty simple. The home is worth what a ready, willing and able buyer will contract for. Not a penny less or a penny more. And the only real way to know exactly what that amount will be, is to put your house on the market.
The value of a home does have a range. And depending on the Agent you select to market and negotiate the contract for the sale of your home will determine if your house sells for the higher end or lower end of that range.
An experienced agent will be able to look at recent comparable and relevant sales and get a good indication of your home’s value. The agent will also explain how they are going to market the property to yield top dollar. For more information on selecting the right agent, CLICK HERE.
Beware of automated valuations that are promoted on websites such as Zillow which has their “Zestimate”. By Zillow’s own admission, these figures can be off by as much as 20%. We even have our own automated valuation service which you can access by clicking the photo below, but it is no substitute for meeting with an experienced and knowledgeable agent.
