Hi Anne...There are a host of websites that claim to be able to give you market value on your home, but experience dictates that they aren't reliable in terms of thier results. I recently did a market on a home where the Seller found his market value at 329,000, and I had told him it would sell at 285,000. Consequently, he listed at 329,000 with another agent, and because of his starting out over-priced, he had to chase the market down and ended up selling at $280,000. Had we listed at $289,000, where I had said, more than likely, it'd have sold at $285,000. So, moral of the story, don't start to high and don't beleive website values! Have a realtor or two do a market analysis on your home!

Thanks, Todd Norsted

Hi Anne,
You can look up homes in your area and compare them to yours. There are also some online estimate sites to check out - and are just a couple that come to mind. One thing you should know is that these online estimates won't be the most accurate since they don't factor in certain things (specific neighborhoods, busy streets, power lines, etc.)

I'm sure every agent that replies will be happy to give you an estimate, and so would we. Ben is a certified residential appraiser so his market analysis are prepared very well.

Give me a few details about your home and I can give you an estimate of value. I need bedroom, bath count, sq footage, style (2 story, split entry), approx condition and where it is.
