If you're planning to sell your house and have questions about its value, your friendly neighborhood psychic might be willing to give you a prediction about the selling price. But you're a lot better off with your friendly neighborhood Realtor.
Instead of looking at your palm or tarot cards, I'll show you the other homes in your neighborhood that have recently sold. Then we can talk about factors that might have influenced the selling price and how these properties compare to yours.
It's called a competitive market analysis, and it will give you a snapshot of the local real estate market in your back yard. We can use these numbers to help you determine the magic number that, as an asking price, will get you the best price in a reasonable amount of time.
