The most common question I am asked is "What is my home worth?" Some are ready to sell. Some are thinking of selling in the future. Others Just want to know what their Manchester NH area home is worth in today's market.
The old saying is a property is worth what someone is willing to pay for it. When placing a value of a home, we prefer to use facts. Looking at what has sold in the last 6 months and what is currently for sale.
LOCATION: One of the most important factors in value, is your location. The city/town, the neighborhood down to street all are factors.
STYLE, AGE AND SIZE: We look at the style of the home, the age and size. We like to use sales that are similar in age, style and within 20% in square footage.
CONDITION: An important factor as we look at the age and condition of the roof, siding, windows, furnace, hot water heater, kitchen, bathrooms, walls and flooring.
AMENITIES AND UPGRADES: We add for what is new. We add for garage, finished basements and fireplaces. One factor in luxury homes, is all the amenities and upgrades should already be there and we can deduct for not having them.
MARKET CONDITIONS: The condition of the market affects your value. When there is a shortage of homes for sale. When there is more buyers than sellers like in today's market. Value increases. When there is more homes for sale than buyers, that decreases value.
WILL MY HOME SELL? The two most important factors if a home will sell are first, not to over price it. Second, it is your choice of listing agents. Not all agents are equal.
The MOST IMPORTANT message is to share with every consumer that my philosophy is simple, provide more personal and professional service to guide clients through each step of the buying or selling process. All Agents are not created equal and every buyer or seller should take the time to hire the BEST not just the biggest. Those that hire me, find a dedication like no other.
