What is your Home Worth?


What is your Home Worth? The Market Value of Your Home is NOT:

  1. What you have invested in it.
  2. What you need out of it.
  3. What you want for it.
  4. What it is appraised for.
  5. What you heard your neighbour’s house sold for.
  6. What the tax department says it is worth.
  7. How much it is insured for.
  8. Based on memories and treasures.
  9. Based on prices of homes where you are moving.

The True Market Value of Your Home is What a Buyer is Willing to Pay:

  1. Based on today’s markets.
  2. Based on today’s competition.
  3. Based on today’s financing.
  4. Based on today’s economic condition.
  5. Based on the buyer’s perception of the condition.
  6. Based on location.
  7. Based on normal marketing time.
  8. Based on showing accessibility.
