How Do You Calculate My Home’s Value?2023-06-19T19:15:07+12:00

Our research team reviews everything from your home details to neighborhood trends to what’s happening in the current market.

Specifically, we compare your home with similar homes in the neighborhood, taking into account square footage, the number of bedrooms, etc. We then look at their price point when sold/pending along with the price point of homes in the market as a whole.

This allows us to see what buyers were willing to pay as well as what the competition would be on the current market.

It’s a direct line to homeowners who may be interested in selling, but haven’t officially listed their property yet, providing you with access to potential homes before they hit the mainstream market.
