Now is the perfect time to appraise your home’s value
The real estate market in the Okanagan continues to race along at near-historic rates, creating a selling climate not seen in more than 30 years. Some homeowners are even selling and renting short-term until the market cools down, just to take advantage of the prices. You may have wondered what your house would fetch on the market – now is a great time to find out. We can help you gauge the price of your home to get an idea of what the value might be.
We start with your BC property notice to see the value that the province set for your home. This is a baseline to bring from.
Next, we compare your home to similar ones that recently sold. Factors such as square footage, age, number of bedrooms/bathrooms, style and location are taken into consideration. We will also look at the current listings to see the history of homes like yours to give you an idea of time on the market and asking vs. sale price, etc.
Next, we can come for a visit (restrictions permitting). This gives us a chance to get a first-hand perspective of all your home has to offer. This includes renovations or features that could add value to the asking price. We can also look at any repairs that need to be done and make recommendations on which new renovations might by worthwhile when it comes to getting the best bang for your buck.
We are also happy to recommend a professional home appraiser who can give you even more detail on your home’s market value. These steps can be the beginning of an exciting journey together towards selling your home, which we are happy to walk with you, every step of the way.
