The best way to determine what a buyer might pay in your market area is to have an experienced professional Realtor provide you with a Competitive Market Analysis. The analysis lists comparable properties in your area that are currently listed and properties similar to yours that have recently sold.
Feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will have a Realtor contact you to prepare a Competitive Market Analysis for you. You are under no obligation for this service.
I look forward to hearing from you.

This is a good question. There are many methods of determining your homes current market value. You could contract an appraiser and pay a fee for the service, contact a realtor and request a Competitive Market Analysis or search the web for one of the many sites â€œdesignedâ€ to present you with the current market value of your home. Your motivation for knowing the value will play a part in your chosen method of discovery. Take into consideration these few factors; How knowledgeable of your specific area is the appraiser, realtor and or site contact? Is the value determined based on general computer searches of your surrounding area or has a detailed analysis of your properties market been conducted? Has the preparer physically viewed your property for condition, amenities and updates? Has the preparer discussed with you personally your motivation for the inquiry? This can be a determining factor regarding sales price establishment for example.

If you are seeking an accurate valuation that comes with the highest level of confidence we recommend having an appraisal done.
It may cost you a little money but people generally place a high level of trust in an appraisal.

I am about to list a home in Windsor Mill 21244 on Wrights Mill Road, so I am very familiar with your area. I have had several transactions in that area in the last year.
