How Much is My Great Falls Montana Home Worth?
If you have been searching online to try and find the current value of your home, you are undoubtedly starting to notice that none of the websites are going give you accurate information. And you are correct!
You cannot get an accurate value for your home by merely searching on the internet. Please do not give any websites any money to help you determine this either. Montana does not report the sale price of homes to any website, so the information they have on values is sketchy at best.
The only way you are going to get an accurate estimate on what your home could fetch in today’s market is to ask a professional. Not just any professional, you are going to need a Real Estate Agent that is familiar with your market and your neighborhood. That means, they must be an active member of the local Real Estate community. Not a brother in law from Arizona, or a cousin of a friend in California. An actual local licensed Realtor. Preferably a Real Estate Broker who has several years of experience, not just in Real Estate in general, but with real experience in your specific neighborhood. They must have access to local MLS sold data to even start coming up with a value, and they must be able to find at least 3 similar comparables to your home that have sold in hopefully the last 6 months to be accurate.
Sure, you could always hire an appraiser for around $500 to give you an estimate, but why would you. A good Real Estate Broker will do a Market Analysis of your home typically for Free if you are thinking about selling. Also, an appraiser is not going to give you tips on things you can do to your home to make it sell faster and for more, nor is he going to point out things that could potentially be a problem in the sale of your home. He is definitely not going to fill you in on your current competition in the market, and he surely won’t tell you what you should Net on the sale of your home, so you know how much will be actually going into your pocket, or possible coming out of it.
