Monday Market Report – What is my house REALLY worth?

The Orlando real estate market median price is 4% higher than it was this time last year!  All of this positive real estate news may have you con considering selling your home in Orlando.  And the first thing you probably want to know is how much it is worth.  homevalueThe main questions when selling a house are:

  1. Does it make sense to sell now?
  2. Will I make a profit or will I be under water?
  3. Will I be able to use my proceeds to buy the next house that I need or want?

All of these are excellent questions and can be answered by truly understanding the value of your home.  The problem is that many of the computer generated home values are inaccurate and can really throw your plans off track if you need or want to sell.

If a third party site tells you your home is worth 30% more or less, that could mean you are either jumping into the market too soon or you are missing out on a great opportunity to sell.

So how does one avoid this? 

Get a valuation from me… someone who actually works in your market daily and understands the difference between original oak floors and laminate….someone who understands what value original molding adds in your 1920s Downtown Orlando bungalow.

The market is expected to improve another 3-5% according to all major real estate industry news across the country. This will likely be the case in the desirable Downtown Orlando neighborhoods as well; and that means more people will continue to list their homes as they realize they have equity to move on to the next house.  So do the right thing, hire a local real estate professional like myself to represent you and help you determine the proper price.
