What’s my home worth?

There are many factors involved in determining the value of your home. Ultimately it will be decided by what a buyer is willing to pay and an appraisal. At the Barb Bottitta team we provide our clients with a detailed market analysis which is based on similar homes that have recently sold in your neighborhood. We make certain price adjustments based on the size, condition, and other amenities. We then arrive at a recommended list price. As the owner of the home it will always be YOUR decision to select the “asking” price, it is our role to provide you with the right guidance and obtain the best price and terms for the sale of your home.

Pricing your home too high could have a significant adverse effect, many times you end up selling the home for below market values because the home stayed on the market longer. Our team on average sells homes at 97% of the asking price. We work hard to price the home right from the start which leads to a faster and more profitable sale for our clients. Below are some ways you can research the value of your home. We would love to be a part of this process with you. Check the current value of your home here.

“Can’t think of anything to improve service! You obviously priced it correctly for the current market conditons.”

Priscilla Kayes, Wescosville

“Barb and her team did a wonderful job marketing the house. The amount of exposure and the number of prospective buyers they attracted was impressive, especially in a down market. Barb’s knowledge of the market and her advice on home valuation and preparation were accurate and timely.”

Bruce Hargus, Allentown

Many homeowners interested in selling often visit Zillow.com to see what their home is worth. Zillow is a real estate marketing website which uses various algorithms to obtain a “Zestimate”. A Zestimate can be a great starting point, however trusting an algorithm to determine the list price of your home could be a huge mistake, so we encourage you to do your own research. We would love to be part of your fact finding mission. If you would like us to help you determine the right asking price we are here to help!
