Is this for the purchase of your home? If you want more direct, personal service I would suggest going with a mortgage broker. Make sure to shop around within 1-2 weeks when looking for lender. Ask if they can give you their fall out rate of contracts in their office. They probably won't want share or won't know off hand but it's good to at least put it out there.... more
Typically, an appraiser won't use sold comps that are older than 6 months unless there has been no comparable properties that have been sold within that time period. If they use older comps, it is more for historical reference Nd they must give an explanation. A local, full time Realtor who is experiment & knowledgeable is your best resource. Kathy & I tour new listings weekly in Novato on broker's tour and are VERY familiar with the Novato market. Please let us know if we can assist you in any way with your real estate questions or determination of value.... more
It looks like you have a beautiful pool and a nice cul de sac setting. It's difficult to give you a price range without seeing the inside of your home. From looking at the outside of your home it appears that the price range would be from $480,000 to $520,000. If you are thinking of selling in the future, I'm also happy to provide you with some staging advice. I'm going to mail you some comparables and general information. Please feel free to contact me if you need additional information.
Hope you're staying cool on this hot day
