What is a Home Value Report?
A Home Value Report provides an assessment of the current market value of your home. This takes into account similar nearby properties that have sold recently and other factors such as square footage above grade, number of bedrooms, lot size, basement, structure type and condition of your home. Home Value Reports are provided to you free of charge with no obligations.
What if my home value is not what I expected?
Home values vary by the strength of the market in a given location. If your home value is less than you expected, you have several options. First, you should comb over the Home Value Report to ensure that the facts are accurate. If you find this to be the case, you can hire an appraiser to value your home. If you need to sell and owe more than your house is worth, you can contact the bank or mortgage company that holds your mortgage to discuss whether or not a short sale is right for you.
I like what I see, what’s my next step?
Now that you’ve determined the value of your home, your next step is to contact a reputable real estate broker or agent. Once contacted, meet with your chosen agent to develop a marketing strategy to sell your home.
