How Much Is My Knoxville Home Worth?

Are you considering selling your Knoxville home? If so, the first question you should ask is,
“What is my house worth?”
Answering this question allows the seller to determine whether or not now is the right time to sell. It may feel daunting to tackle this question, but you don’t have to find the answer alone. Experienced real estate agents, such as myself, are experts in determining home value. Here are the steps you need to take when you’re ready to sell your Knoxville home:

Step 1: Perform a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA)

In order to determine the value of your Knoxville home, you must begin by looking at the current competition your house faces on the market. In order to perform this analysis, you will need to look at similar properties in the area, and what they’ve sold for. It is also beneficial to look at the homes that have NOT sold, as this can indicate issues in pricing and market value. By looking at the price points that have (or have not) sold in your area, you can determine a ballpark estimate of the value. Realtors specialize in performing CMA’s.

Step 2: Perform a Break Down of the Home

After determining what similar homes are selling for, it’s time to take a deep dive into the particular home in question. Questions a realtor may ask during this step include:

Have there been any recent renovations?
How many years old is the home?
What kind of water-heater does the home have?
Is the home move-in ready?
What is the square footage of the house?
How much has this house sold for in the past?
