Finding the Accurate Value of Your Home

The Comparative Market Analysis Report

To calculate the fair market value of your home, Steven Hill of Sotheby’s International Realty Canada prepares a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) report summarizing properties in your area with similar square footage, construction, age and condition that have recently sold or are currently on the market. Recent comparable sales and listings are two of the most important factors impacting fair market value. Comparable listings that expired before they had a chance to sell also offer an indication of the fair market value of your property.
Adjustments to your home’s valuation will also be made given its' location (e.g. proximity to parks, waterfront, schools and transportation), floor plan, home improvements, amenities, parking, storage and other variables.

Determining Your

Home's Value

This is where the fun begins:  THE VALUE

Properties that have sold in the last 30-60 days typically represent the market value for your home.  

Properties that are currently listed are your direct competition; key factors to consider are what is the property, what are they offering, is their value accurate, and how are they represented.

Properties that failed to sell are another indicator.  What was the cause of the failure?  Marketing? Price? Timing? Pandemics?
