There are several ways to go...the absolute best way is to have the home appraised by a professional appraiser. This will involve a fee of usually several hundred dollars but it should give you a pretty fair appreciation of the homes current market value.

You can consult with a real estate professional that is able to provide you with a comparitive market analysis. An agent will review your RE market to identify good comparison property for your subject home, pretty much in the same manner as an appraiser would. They will usually provide you with a price range that should be similar to an appraisal. This process is normally provided free of charge.

The third(but not recommended) process is to do the work yourself by using resources such as Trulia, Zillow, tax records, etc to create your own information to draw from and forming your own conclusion.

Establishing home values can be tricky and involve many factors, something a professional is best suited for.

Good luck,
