                                        What is My Mountlake Terrace WA Home Worth?



 When people are planning on selling anything the first thing they do is look at comparable things that either are for sale or have sold in the past and real estate is no different. The problem with real estate and most other items is we never really know exactly what they sold for. I spoke with a man yesterday who seemed fairly knowledgeable about real estate in his immediate area and rattled off prices for some of the not so recent sales on La Pierre Drive, 232nd, 51st Ave West and another on 54th Ave West all in Mountlake Terrace and when I got home and checked he was right about one thing these properties had sold or at least been on the market. But to consider properties comparable they actually have to be comparable in square footage, interior finishes, the time of sale and believe it or not how the property was sold. 


The property on La Pierre Drive was flipped and sold by an investor 18 months ago, the home on 232nd was sold for sale by owner and was in disrepair, the home on 51st was sold at foreclosure auction and needed some updating and the home on 54th Ave West was actually very close except the garage was turned into the master bedroom and was just on the market and hadn’t actually sold yet. Now being that all of these homes are in the neighborhood may make them a comparable property but can you really know what your Mountlake Terrace home in the 98043 zip code is worth just by looking at some of the neighboring homes for sale? 


The home on La Pierre Drive was bought at auction for 100K less than the sales price and the home had almost no work done to it. The home was sold 18 months ago and the investors wanted a quick sale so I would put that home at 50K less than what the home would be sold for today. The home on 232nd was not marketed correctly as it was a for sale by owner and I would put that home at 25K below market value. The foreclosure on 51stneeded updating and was bought for cash so I would put that property at 40K below market value. The property on 54th was way overpriced, by at least 35K and will never sell at the listed price. So while these properties might be for sale unless you have the inside knowledge that real estate brokers pay for, understand what creates value and the methodology behind real estate appraising you could be way off on the comparable properties  you are using to determine the value for your Mountlake Terrace home.
