Selling Price: 3 Tips to Find Nearby Home Values

Have you been thinking about selling your home? And then one day, you wake up to find a selling price with a big shiny sold sign on your neighbor's front lawn?

Naturally, your first thought will be, “How much did the home sell for?” 

You’re not only curious, but you need to know this information before you decide what a fair listing price for your home needs to be to sell fast and for top dollar.

You could give the neighbor down the street a call. But if you don’t know them that well, that might be awkward. Or you may not feel comfortable asking them. 

Here are 3 tips on how to find the selling price of homes near you.

Find the Right Real Estate Agent

1. Find the Selling Price from a Trusted Low-Pressure Real Estate Agent

Knowing what homes have sold for in your area and how active listings are priced will give you a good idea of what your home might sell for in today’s market.

This information will give you a good idea of what your home might sell for if you were to put it up for sale in today’s market. 

Working with a trusted real estate agent is the best method to use. Only a real estate expert can log into the MLS to find the detailed price history of your home over the years. 

This is critical information that you must have weeks before putting your home up for sale.

When you call Your Home Sold Guaranteed Realty-By Gupta Group, we have a reliable system that is accurate and will guarantee that you will know the homes' selling price in the Bay Area.

We provide a complete comparative analysis of your home based on your specific criteria using our system to conduct a thorough market analysis by searching the database for similar homes listed or sold in your area. 

Our system allows us to take into account specific house features to compare, like:

  • Number of bedrooms and bathrooms
  • Number of stories 
  • Square footage
  • Acreage
  • Renovations or special interior features
  • The year the home was built
  • Unique exterior features (garage, pool, etc.)

This results in a highly customized, accurate comparison between the most similar nearby properties.

We are here to guide you through the home buying or sale process, giving you access to the information you would need help finding on your own.

2. Use Online Real Estate Search Tools

Many people looking to determine the selling price of homes in their area often gravitate towards places like Zillow®, Trulia®, Redfin®, and Realtor.com®.

Those sites can show the correct previous sale prices. However, they can be highly inaccurate because their database can not be in your home. Those websites won’t have the exact comparables based on your unique situation.

Did you know that over 50% of the homes sold last year were not listed on the MLS?

There are many off-market homes available that only a real estate agent with access to this information would know.

In addition, did you know that certain states have a non-disclosure?

These states have laws preventing the sold price of a home from being publicly disclosed online to protect citizens' privacy.

Here is a short list of some states that have a non-disclosure.

  • Alaska
  • Idaho
  • Louisiana
  • Mississippi
  • Missouri

If you live in a non-disclosure state, it is impossible to do a comparative analysis online—another reason to use a trusted real estate agent.

3. Searching Local Public Property Records

This is a time-consuming way to find out the selling prices of homes, but when you search alone, you may need more information or want more.

A few places you can look are:

  • Local county courthouse
  • Tax assessor’s office
  • County records

Keep in mind that the accuracy of this information may not be a fair comparison to what your home is worth.
