The Running Realtor: How much is my home worth?

A blend of ramblings about Real Estate & Running around New Haven County and the Connecticut Shoreline

How much is my home worth?

Welcome to the Prime Spring Market in Real Estate for 2008!

You may be thinking the frigid temps outside are better suited for winter hibernation but time truly flies and if you are considering a move this year now is a good time to get started with the groundwork.  Many homeowners in the early stages of considering a move are reluctant to seek the knowledge they need to make an informed decision.  There always seems to be one more repair or a bit more cleaning that should be done before talking to "The Realtor"  Now is the perfect time to request a free "on-line" Comparable Market Analysis ( CMA ) of  your homes value and if you decide to make a move there is still a few months to get the house ready for a spring sale. 

  • Are you thinking of selling and wondering what your home is worth in todays market?
  •                                                                                                                                                                                 *
  • Is the media hype of gloom and doom swaying your decision not to market your home?
  •                                                                                                                                                                                 *
  • Are you searching for an easy way to get a realistic estimate of you home value?Home Value Graphic

If your answer is "YES" to any of the above questions just click the house on the right to fill out a very brief form to start the estimation process.  Without even the need to coordinate schedules  and tour the property a report detailing the value of your home will arrive in your email.

Don't be confused about the quality of my on-line CMA.  This is not some vague guesstimate that you might find from some web site offering instantaneous results.  With the vast amount of data on-line today I can research your property and base the pricing on similar homes currently on the market and recently sold in your area. 

Why Wait?  There are really no excuse to delay your investigation.  Do you want to stop guessing and find out the value of your home?  Click the house, provide your name, address and email.... It really is that EASY! 

If you do not currently own a home and are ready to undertake the adventures of searching for property in New Haven County  contact Dan Cummings - The Running Realtor or call my 24 hour access line : 203-672-2455

Dan, this is a great time of the year in my opinion to buy or sell.  I have already Pre-Qualified a number of people this year, so the buyers are out there and the next house to go on the market might be the one that they are looking for.

Dan, The sooner you get ready for most events the better.

Dan.... I agree with George. The problem that I have is that I am getting some buyers that want to buy now, but never did the pre-screening process and because of their credit, it's not realistic, if they want low costs and a good rate. I have one guy that it could be about 5 more months. This kind of coincides with what you are talking about. Why wait... why wait last minute in my opinion. It applies to both what you talk about and my example, Good job....

Dan--Good message! Best way to get an accurate market analysis is to contact a Realtor!

George... Feel free to send all your buyers down to the shoreline.....

Cyndee... You must be getting all the aging baby boomer's that are getting tired of the cold.

Mana... It always helps to "Be Prepared"

Jeff... I'm don't now much about cleaning up credit but I'm always amazed when people run out and buy a new car while house hunting. 

Suzanne... Many still seem to procrastinate... Many buyer think waiting for a 5-10k price reduction is their best bet but a slight up tick in mortgage rates cost them more in the long run...

Jennifer... You never have anything to fear on my posts...  Unless of course the Truth is Scary!

Thesa... I think the market is picking up as long as the Feds don't harpoon it.

Teri... Sometimes people are afraid to waste our time... I'm very patient and don't mind doing the analysis even if they will not be listing this year...  I'll be happy with their business whenever they're ready to move.

Elizabeth... Thanks,  Surprised you heard me sneeze...  :-)
