your best bet is to get in touch with a Realtor that works in that area to pull some comparable properties.to do a CMA. I would be happy to do that for you. My office is in Smithfield and I am very familiar with both Rhode Island and Massachusetts and hold licenses in both states. You can contact me on my cell anytime at 401-454-5484.
Best of Luck.
First I would agree with all the answers, 1) Hire a local Professional Realtor with experience in your community or subdivision, they can provide you with recent SOLD and ACTIVE listings report, we call it CMA Compartive Market Analysis all at no cost to you. 2) Hire a Professional appraiser for fee. 3) Check websites that gives you a ballpark not accurate figure such as Zillow.com. 4) Your local County Property Appraiser Office will give you some information as well.
Any realtor can do a "Current Market Anaysis" CMA at NO CHARGE to you. They will compare like properties that have sold recently (6 months is to long) This analysis tells you what the market will bare.
If you would like assistance, please feel free to contact me. NO obligation.

AMS Real Estate
I am basically agreeing with the other responses on the site. If selling a home, a realtor can do a complimentary market analysis on your home that shows the solds and pendings in the past 6 months near your home, which is something an appraiser would look at as well when obtaining a value of the home.
If buying a home and are curious what other homes are selling for, it is the same process and a local realtor can give you that data through our online database and can help you out with the home buying process. We realtors only get paid when you close on the home, so it is no risk to you to work with someone who has your best interest at heart.
Our website has a Market Snapshot feature you can use to see the homes that are both active and sold in the market. You can go to: http://www.thedolberteam.com and enter your name and email address, then put in a zip code and house criteria, and you can receive market updates on the homes that are active and sold within that zipcode. You can receive weekly updates, or just receive that one market report.
Good luck with everything! If you'd like more assistance, give me a call or send me an email and I'll be glad to assist you. I am licensed in both MA and RI.

Property values can be determined by a real estate professional, a licensed appraiser, or any individulal with willing to invest the time and effort to collect and evaluate relative information.
But as others have said, probably the best avenue for you is to be in touch with an experienced local realtor for their expertise.
Your agent can pull recent sold, pending and active comps in the specific area to help determine value. If you are not currently working with a buyer agent contact me and I will be happy to help you.

The best way is to contact a local REALTOR and have them look it up for you. They can also run comparables for other homes in the area as well. There will more than likely be no charge of any kind.
