The Definition Of A Comparative Market Evaluation

At Century 21 Avon, in Cambridge, we pride ourselves on helping prospective sellers understand our marketplace and more importantly, the value of property within our marketplace.

We will provide you with a complementary written market analysis of your property, including recently sold properties, pending properties and the properties currently for sale.

The report will include thoughts and conclusions on what the comparable properties tell us about the value of your property, with focus on the key components of real estate value:

1) Location: You can"t get away from this one. This is the most immutable of real estate value functions and therefore has the most impact. We consider the value of homes in the neighborhood, the proximity of the home to desirable schools and other public facilities including transportation.

2) Size: We will take into consideration the size of the home and the land on the subject property as well as the comparable properties.

3) Condition: A house that has been better maintained and shows better will always sell for more than one that has had deferred (neglected) maintenance and needs work. We will consider over 30 factors of condition.

4) Desirable amenities: If a house has amenities that are currently popular in the marketplace, it will bring a higher price.

5) Calculate the price per square foot: The average price per square foot for homes in your neighborhood, shouldn"t be the sole determinant of the asking price for your home, but it can be a useful starting point. Keep in mind that various methodologies can be used to calculate square footage.
