Follow Our 3 Tips to Finding Out How Much is My Home Worth
You’ve probably seen similar homes in your neighborhood sold. Your natural reaction is to wonder how much their home sold for and what it means for the selling price of your home.
So how do you find out what the house down the street sold for? Here are 3 tips on finding the selling prices:
- Find an experienced realtor
- Research pricing online
- Search local public property records
1. Find an Experienced Realtor
An experienced realtor is invaluable when selling your home.
At Your Home Sold Guaranteed Realty - Barb Has the Buyers Team, our proven system of finding prices in your area ensures that you will know accurate selling prices in Colorado Springs.
Our comprehensive comparative analysis gives us accurate pricing of your home based on comparable homes in your area. We take the guesswork out of pricing your home, with filters for unique features like:
- Number of bedrooms
- Number of bathrooms
- Square footage
- The amount of acreage
- Renovations or special features
- Year the home was built
- Unique exterior features
This analysis gives us accurate and tailor-made pricing for your home based on its unique features. You won’t be able to find this highly customized pricing anywhere else – it’s made just for you and your home!
2. Find Out “How Much is My House Worth?” By Researching Online
Some home sellers rely on online search tools like Zillow®, Trulia®, Redfin®, and Realtor.com®. While these sites can show previous sales prices, they won’t have an accurate pricing of your home because they do not consider the unique features of your home.
Further, not all sold or listed homes are available on these sites. In fact, last year over 50% of homes that sold were not listed on MLS. This is for two reasons.
First, off-market homes are only available to realtors.
Second, some states have non-disclosure laws that prevent the sold price of a home from being publicly disclosed online. Examples of states that have non-disclosure laws include:
If you live in one of these states, you need an experienced real estate agent in order to have an accurate comparative analysis.
2. Search Local Public Property Records
Another way to find homes that have sold in your area is to check local public property records. These records can be found at the local county courthouse, tax assessor’s office or by looking at county records.
This is an extremely time-consuming way to complete a comparative analysis. Plus, again this route won’t give you accurate pricing information to answer the question “how much is my home worth?” because it does not have the unique features of your home (or anyone else’s).
