In order to do a basic Comparative Market Analysis I need an address. This will provide a range based on other similar properties that have sold and are listed in your neighborhood. The properties in Historic Old Northeast seem to have risen a small percentage rather than dropped in the past few months. When I trained to do CMAs many years ago I was told to allow between $30K and $50K for waterfront property based on the depth and location of water. For example, if it is on the intracoastal but you can't get a big sailboat up to the dock it may not be worth as much as a neighbor who is a few houses away but on deep water. Contact me if you want research done on your property. Thank you.

I lived in a home with a waterview, one home from Coffee Pot Bayou, and I really enjoyed the view I had. However, I think the proximity to the water & the accessiblitiy to walk along the bay was more of a selling point when I did sell the home. Most buyers will not put a large value on a small waterview - especially in this market. They would prefer to actually be on the water! It all boils down to your house ammenities and what has sold in the area - and of course your motivation.

Best of Luck! Contact me if you would like to discuss more specifics

Do check out all of us. Ask us how long we've been selling homes HERE. How much we know about this area. Ask me anything. But as I said before, we can't tell you what your home is worth unless and until we SEE it. Good luck.

I'm afraid I have to ask you a few question. Do you have a garage? If so is it a one or two car. Do you have a pool? Is it gunite? in ground or above ground? How large is your lot? How many heated square feet do you have? Is your home located north of 9th Ave but south of 22nd? This is the information that is used to compare homes. Then you get into location. The difference between a water view and on the water can be from $25K to $125 depending on the location. Also a view of the bay is not the same as being on the bayAnd then, just because it is on the bay doesn't determine the price either. A house on the bay if it does not have deep water may be $50K less than one with a dock and deep water. As you can see there are so many variables it is not possible to give you an answer without getting a specific address and other information. If you are only interested in a Comparative Market Analysis then any realtor can do one for you. But if you are considering selling your home then be sure you check out a few of us. We are all very different in how we work with our client.s Much success.

There is no way I can tell you without seeing your home. I've been in your area since 1970. Let me know if you want an opinion of value. Best wishes,

Franc, I live in your neighborhood. The best way to determine current value is with a complete appraisal. Determining different values based upon the level of the upgrades can be derived by the analysis of comparable sales of both types of "updated" and "vintage" type properties. Please call me @ 727-560-0356 and we can discuss your situation further. Regards, John Huston

The exact subdivison, square footage, age of home, garage, and many other things are required to determine true valuation. Plus additional information of the view etc. Good luck & do lots of research of what has recently sold in the area.

This is a great question for your Realtor. The person that answers this question needs to know three things:
1. Your home
2. Your market
3. Your situation

Then they can help you.

Hello Franc,

The only way to know as Bill suggested is to do a market analysis of what has been sold in your area. Do determine what the home should be priced at requires an experienced Realtor to view it.

Price is everything in today's market and unless it is priced right, it will not sell as there are too many homes on the market. The goal is to set the price right to attract potential qualfied buyers, and to do aggressive marketing. Since 87% of buyers first begin searching on the internet, make sure if you go with a Realtor, that they have a strong internet presence.

If you care to give an address, I will do an analysis for you.

Good Luck.
