Sometimes, it just takes good old-fashioned math to figure it out the right way. There's no substitution for quality appraisal work. Short cuts do not work when you truly want to know the value of your home. Values may not be as high as they once were, or as we would like them to be. However, they are what the comparable sales deem them to be, at this time. The "market" is constantly changing and current value is determined by recent sales and the available competition at any given time. Knowledge is power and your best weapon is to know the facts. Knowing the available comps is a priority, before you list your home for sale. You need to know what has recently sold and what you will be competing against; both influence your final value. In real estate valuation, you must compare apples to apples.
