Hi there Toni, 90 days is usually the norm in an active region where there has been many sales of like type property. But sometimes an exact match cannot be found until 6 months or even more. So it really depends on how close you match apples to apples.
If you need some comps run please let me know

Comps are used to establish market value at a given time, so if a market is rapidly changing - either up or down, the shorter the period between the comp and what is presently selling is most accurate. Appraisers have traditionally used up to 6 months of comps, but these days I believe they do not go back further than 90 days. All the best. Liz
I would say 90 days is the optimal, the further back you go the less reliable it is. Some areas like Tiburon and others have expensive homes next to lesser value ones, so choosing what the comps are is the key to a good basis point.
