The first step in determining the price to list your home at is to look at the recent sales of similar homes. Specifically, you want to compare prices of homes that are similar in square footage, number of bedrooms and bathrooms, garage space, lot size, and type of construction.
The most accessible source of information on comparable sales is the public record. Accessing the data is another matter, at least for the general public. One problem with the public record is that it tends to run at least six to eight weeks behind. Add another four to six weeks for the typical escrow period and you can see the data is not current. The most current information is the most valuable.
As a Realtor, I have access to the most current information for homes currently on the market, currently under contract and recently sold. Using this I can create a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) for your home that will help us price it in a way to attract the most qualified buyers and net you the highest possible price that the market will allow in the shortest amount of time.
