The old standby for realtors who are trying to win listings is comparative market analysis. The agent will try to showcase their value by pulling sales numbers they claim only they have access to. And, they will put together a set of recent home sales to give you context for pricing your home. That’s NOT how we do it! We go above and beyond run-of-the-mill comparative analysis to look at the true value of your home.
With our direct-cost approach, we carefully examine the market increase over the course of the last five years, determining the cost of your home from its original purchase price plus market increase. And if you didn’t update your home in the time you lived there, that might be the end. But we see the value in updates and will add an estimated cost value of those updates as well.
Of course, comparables matter also. We will provide you with street history from the past two years, active homes and recently sold homes. These numbers will help us give you an accurate evaluation of what your home is worth. Our dedication and knack for what we do give you the most in-depth evaluation around.
