You would do well to talk to an appraiser. You can either pay for an appraisal or some appraisers will actually give you a pretty good idea for free or a small fee. I almost bought a home for $450,000 which, after consulting an appraiser, was really worth about $250,000. Many owners are stuck on their 2006 prices. They don't realize how far the market has dropped. They figure it was worth $600,000 in 2006 so it must be worth at least $400,000 now. If you talk to appraisers you will find they are swamped. And now, with the moratorium on foreclosures ending, things are busy. One appraiser told me there are 100,000 foreclosures about to begin in the San Bernardino/Riverside area. This is part of the "new wave" of foreclosures everyone has been talking about. You'll undoubtedly get a very different point of view from realtors, and you should definitely talk to them. Just make sure you get a list of properties that have actually sold in the past 3 months. And then consider that prices are going to continue to drop in most areas. A few days ago I spoke with an owner who had just sold her mountain property up in Santa Barbara. She first had it listed in late 2007 for 625,000. She had an offer in 2008 for 565 which she turned down. She just sold the house for $350,000. If you need to sell sometime in the next 4 - 5 years you should sell NOW. Interest rates are artificially very low now and the new wave of foreclosures has not yet hit the market. Just check the comparable sales and price your house fairly and it should sell. ... more
