Factors That Can Affect A Home's Fair Market Value

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 determined 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 takes into consideration such things as location and home conditions. Fluctuations in the market, interest, and motivation can also affect prices.

What is a CMA?

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

Price adjustments are based on fluctuations in the market, interest, and motivation.

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