The easiest and most accurate way to get an idea of current market value is to get an appraisal. Agents may look to sugarcoat things in an attempt to become your agent. After the home sits they'll hit you up with "the market is telling us we need to drop price" song. Few really understand how to comp homes to closed sales and most will look to current listings - not reflective of the market. Appraisers deal only with closed sales and look at things from the lender's perspective - and that will have to happen anyway, so you might as well see the same picture the buyer will.
