How do I find out what my house is worth?

The best way is to have a Realtor run you a series of reports off the MLS that shows both solds, and what is for sale, and how long specific type of properties take to sell. It is best to get close in terms of location, size, # of rooms, amenities and so on....avoid any averages of price per sf, but more of a weighted average with the weight towards the homes that most closely reflect the utility of the home such as yours.

Hello Gloria,

I would contact a local Realtor and they will be able to conduct a Property Analysis for you. This will give you the market value of your home. The other alternative would be to have it appraised, however this would be at a cost to you. Have you tried, this is not supremely accurate however it may give you a ballpark figure.
Good Luck

Your property is worth what someone is willing to pay for it. The best way to determine what house are selling for is to get listing of what similiar homes in the immediate vecinity have sold for in the past 3 months or less. I have several sevices that make this information available to me. Please feel free to call me at my office at your convenience and I will get the information for you.

I would get a professional Realtor to give you an appraisal on the property. Most of us do that for free. Please fill out your contact information at, e-mail me at or call me at 917-304-8636 to schedule one

Call a Realtor who is a member of the Long Island Board of Realtors and ask for a market valuation. In fact, call a couple. If you want a general estimate, it can be done without seeing the property...just with information. If you contact me off line,, I will try to assist you.

Finding a range by yourself can be done by checking websites like this. Using Realtors will give you a more accurate range because you will get up to date sold info on similar homes with # rooms, Bd, Ba etc. and also the inventory in the neighborhood and their listing price. Using an Appraiser will combine market value and the replacement cost by square footage.

What your home is worth and what your home can sell for can be two very different numbers.

Call in several real estate marketing professionals to do a market analysis for you, adjusted only by actually seeing your property.

All homeowners are locked into a neighborhood range based on sales of the last 3 months, within a one mile radius, same zip code, same school district. Where you are placed on the range depends upon the condition of your property, updates and how well it shows.

It's a market, and everyone knows the market will determine the price. How?
The price of your house is what someone would be willing to pay if you *had* to sell your house today.
If you have offers, that would be the highest offer todate.

A quick and easy solution may be to look at Of course to really get the TRUE perspective of value, you need to contact a reputable agent in your area to have a Competitive Market Analysis (CMA) done along w/ a timing analysis.
