You do a recent search of homes that have sold that are similar to your home--i.e., # of bd, bas, sq. ft., lot size, garage, fireplace etc wthin a 6 mo period of time or less. The unfortnate thing is that if you are not an agent you may not know much about the sold homes. For instance, the hosue looks great from the photos, but did you know it had a 50K pest report, or did you know the kitchen was from the 1920's, did you know the house had just been totally redone from head to toe with new high end finishes....unless you tour these homes, you are not geting a true reading. I highly suggest you hire an experienced agent. This is what we do and we are there to help you not to leave any monies on the table but bring you in more than what you might have been able to by yourself. We are able to network with 100's of agents in the area whom otherwise migh not want to even show your house to their clients. Usually homes that are sold by experienced agents are higher priced than homes that homeowners try to sell themselves.

i am sorry to hear what happened, looks like you were taken and in most cases you are stuck... you could seek the advise of an attorney to lien the house and go after the landlord for your deposit and criminal charges of fruad. the bank will look to evict you, you can at least ask tehm for a cash for keys agreement where they will offer 1000 to 1500 for you to move in 21-30 days as opposed to fighting evictio, you dont have long to act so file suit against the landlord and have any other property he owns liended at once. good luck with working it out.... more
