Raleigh - Cary Home Values

  • So you want to know what your house is worth, RIGHT?
  • You don't think you want to bother a Realtor, yet, RIGHT?
  • However, you DO want accurate information so you can make an informed decision, CORRECT?

Let's take a look at the facts before you go to an incorrect, computer generation page that will either get your hopes up or crush your dreams. 


Here are 10 FACTS a Home Seller should know about his/her home's value before you decide to sell:


  1. A Home's True Value is determined by what the market (ie a home buyer) will pay.
  2. You'll only truly know what it is worth the day it sells. Home Values are like a Roller Coaster - they have their ups and downs and are in constant motion.
  3. Most home buyers will get a home mortgage which will require an appraisal. Homes generally need to appraise for the home buyer to move forward on the home purchase.
  4. Appraisers usually use homes most like yours that sold within 90 - 180 days or sooner to determine if the offer you received is comparable.
  5. Sellers often over estimate the value of an upgrade. Upgrades are not necessarily accounted for dollar for dollar. 
  6. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Most sellers think their home is worth more than it is.
  7. Well decorated or staged homes sell better than others.
  8. Odors, Paint Colors, Schools, curb appeal, Neighbors, and Many other things can affect the value of your home. Those things can only be viewed in person. Not online by a computer.
  9. Clean, well organized homes tend to sell better than cluttered, dirty homes.
  10. Real Estate Professionals are trained to give you a true estimate of your home's value. A True professional will be honest with you because they want to sell your property and earn your trust and referrals.
