Comparative Market Analysis
Contact us for a full CMA (Comparative Market Analysis) of your property.
A Comparative Market Analysis is an in-depth evaluation of similar, recently sold homes (called comparables or comps). A CMA report can help us establish the fair market value for your property. The price range from the CMA can then be used as a guide to be used for establishing an offer price or a listing price. While we may have a recommendation for a list price based on comps and market conditions, ultimately the listing price is up to you, the seller.
