Your Niagara Home
That’s something we get asked almost daily. Someone at some point in a conversation will pipe up, “Hey, by the way, with the market the way it is, what do you think my home is worth?”
It’s a dangerous game to just give a number, or even just to ask “how many beds, how many baths, how many square feet?” Finding an accurate assessment of your Niagara home’s true market value requires first person viewing of the home and property, and then a thorough review of market activity in your particular area. Realtors® call this a CMA – a Comparative Market Assessment. We will look into what your property has to offer a potential buyer, compare it to what similar properties offered and what they sold for, and then crunch the numbers to come up with a market value we can be confident in.
Here’s the thing, though – the market is constantly changing. An evaluation from March is certainly not truly accurate in June, considering the volatility of the housing market in Niagara in recent months and years. If we quote you a number, it reflects the real estate environment of that day or week. I’ve said often that in a hyper-active market, pricing a home is like throwing a dart at a moving target.
