Check public records if you have access to the internet or know how to do so at the courthouse (or if you have a real estate agent friend that will allow you to look over their shoulder as they access their public records on the MLS.)
-Drive around your neighbourhood and knock on every for sale sign you come across. GO TO THEIR OPEN HOUSE IF THEY ARE HAVING ONE. sell my house Pennsylvania is an excellent resource for this.
-Look for houses for sale in your area in the classified section of your local newspaper. -Go to Craigslist and search the real estate for sale advertisements in your neighbourhood. Remember, you’re comparing all of these houses to yours.) Many times, people will post photos and even videos in this section so that you may see the residences for yourself. If there isn’t much information, send an email or make a phone call to the person selling their home.
-Check out Realtor.com to see what houses are for sale in your region. Again, if there isn’t much information, phone the agent and inquire about the property.
-Look at zillow and cyberhomes to see what values they come up with for your home. Also, when they list comps, they drive past the houses to compare at least the outside of your house to the sold house. (I wouldn’t place as much stock in these two sites, but you’ll find a lot more information here.)
You should now have a good notion of how much your home is worth. By the way, you only want to look at sold houses within the last 6 months when looking at public data, comps from agents, and sites like Zillow and Cyberhomes. Some will advise you to go back a year, but I believe that is going too far. In current market, I’d recommend have a look at them in the last three months!
So you’ve decided on a price. So, I’d like you to be very honest with yourself about the value and how you arrived at it, OK? Is the value based on a house in perfect condition, but yours isn’t? Is the pricing a fixer-upper, but your home doesn’t require any repairs? Those are the considerations you should make when gathering comps from all of the resources listed above.
