How Much Your Home Worth NOW?

Determining a Home's Fair Market Value

Are you getting ready to sell? One of the first steps is to know your home's worth or fair market value in today's market. Your home's fair market value is the dollar amount a knowledgeable buyer and seller would agree on within a reasonable amount of time (usually within 90 days).

Home Value Estimator

Get an instant home value estimate for your property.

The fair market value is only an estimate. It also takes into consideration such things as location and home conditions. Fluctuations in the market, interest, and motivation can also affect prices.

Also factored in are things such as; square footage, location, amenities, property condition, and existing financing. All included data has come from the most reliable sources: local real estate firms, title companies, and the Multiple Listing Service (MLS).

What is a Comparative Market Analysis?

A Comparative Market Analysis, or CMA, is a report used to determine fair market value. A CMA considers recent sales, pending sales, and current listings based on local market data. We can establish an appropriate listing price for your house from this information. This price may need to be adjusted as the market changes to ensure that your home remains competitively priced.

We determine the fair market value by the dollar amount a knowledgeable buyer and seller would agree on within a reasonable amount of time (usually within 90 days). The fair market value is only an estimate. It also considers location and home conditions— market fluctuations, interest, and motivation.

This CMA report includes current local listings and other recently sold (or pending sales) in your neighborhood. Although no house is precisely the same as yours, these are the most similar properties that appraisers often use to determine home values. 

Please don't rely solely on a Zestimate or other computer-generated report when it comes to your home's value! Our detailed home value estimate reports are not generic guesstimates using inaccurate data from Trulia or Zillow records.

We provide the same information that lending institutions and appraisers use to determine your home's worth. In addition, we work with homeowners every day, providing Comparative Market Analysis reports to help determine the proper offer or selling price for their homes.

Your professional evaluation Includes

  • Up-to-date prices and details of nearby comparable properties
  • A professional estimate of your home's current value prepared by a licensed REALTOR
  • The most present information and recent sales activity in the local market
  • Pre-listing recommendations based on an on-site property tour (optional, no obligation)

You can use this information when talking to lenders, banks, appraisers, or Realtors so that you know the actual value of your property in today's market. Just provide a valid email and property address to get a detailed CMA built for you by hand using sophisticated software and sales data that sites like Zillow and Trulia cannot access.

4 Ways to Ease Your Home Downsize

Are Savings and Simplicity in Your Future?

Senior Couple Downsizing

Downsizing Your Home can be an Exciting Time.

Scaling down doesn't mean taking a step back. On the contrary, it opens a world of new possibilities. Downsizing your home can be an exciting and overwhelming time. Many feel liberated as they get rid of the possessions they no longer need, while others feel increasingly anxious. 

For those downsizing a home they have lived in for many years—decades, even—the downsizing process can be particularly daunting. Below are four tips for easing the downsize.

4 Tips for Easing Your Downsize

  1. Hold an estate sale—partner with an estate sales group to facilitate the auction or sale of belongings at the house.
  2. Contact an auction house. Consider letting an auction house take over the sale of high-end valuables such as antique furniture, artwork, or collectibles.
  3. Donate to a charity. Are you thinking about passing some possessions to those in need? Call the charity (for example, Salvation Army, Goodwill) to give them a list of the items to be donated.
  4. Hire a paper-shredding service. Because financial, bank and private documents can contain confidential information, Gunderson says it is vital to practice caution when removing them from the house.

Stuart Area Homes Listed Over 60 Days

Are you looking for deals? There might be room to negotiate on these Stuart area homes and condos for sale that have been on the market for more than 60 days.

There are several reasons why a home is on the market for 60+ days. Top among them:

  • The home's aesthetic 
  • A previous offer fell through
  • The seller is firm on the price
  • There could be something wrong with the house

If a house has been on the market for a long time, the owner may now be motivated to sell, meaning flexibility on price. Should you come in with an offer that's too low, the seller might still come back with a reasonable counteroffer.

Canadian Vineyard & Cannabis Farm

Discover the Basque Vineyard, BC, a Canadian Winery & Cannabis Cultivation Enterprise

Basque Vineyard

Overview

Welcome to the Basque Vineyard BC Inc., a Canadian corporation licensed to grow and manufacture Hemp, Cannabis, and wine products in Ashcroft, British Columbia. The Vineyard has been completely upgraded, including a new drip irrigation system. The Basque Vineyard, Inc. is currently for sale and has an in-hand Canadian license for the cultivation of Cannabis. Contact us today for more information about this rare opportunity to live and work in western Canada's beautiful Basque region.

The Property

Located 20 minutes south of Ashcroft, The Basque Vineyard BC is a stunning 12.23-acre property with an adjacent sub-divisible 31.01 acres. It is situated on a beautiful sloping hillside overlooking the majestic Thompson river.

The region's southern exposure, sunny arid climate, and gently sloping hills offer a fertile environment for grape and hemp cultivation that rivals the wine country in Spain and France.

Improvements

The well-draining sandy loam soil and south-facing windswept slopes now feature a newer irrigation system and a distribution center with a purification system for drinking and domestic consumption; these are the perfect accompaniments to establishing a successful vineyard or grow facility. The potential of this business is limitless.

The Residence

In addition to the magnificent landscape and Thompson river views is a 1,200 square foot 2-bedr/1-bath rancher with Italian ceramic tile floors, an open floor plan, laundry room, sunroom, Jacuzzi, and fireplace.

Developing Your Winery, Vineyard, or Cannabis Cultivation

The current owner has numerous studies from soil suitability to establishing a drip irrigation system and consulted with experts to determine which strains of grapes would work best with the properties conditions.

Expansion Opportunities

The ability to expand your Vineyard is possible as the adjacent 31.01-acre property is divisible into 10+ acres each. In addition, Basque Vineyard BC Inc., with a license to grow hemp (the managing company of both properties), is also up for sale if the buyer needs to acquire it for immigration purposes.

Let your imagination run and create the winery, Vineyard, and Hemp farm of your dreams!
