Here are some tips for calculating the true value of your home in Hagerstown…
Think Like an Appraiser — Appraisers are market experts at determining the value of any given home. Primarily, they consider the number of bedrooms and bathrooms, total square footage, lot size, age of the property, HVAC system, and overall condition. It’s also important to factor the crime rate of the neighborhood, local amenities, and even public transportation access.
Look At Nearby Sales — The best way to determine how much your home is worth is to find another similar home (same number of bedrooms and bathrooms and in comparable condition) in the same neighborhood that sold within the last few months. The more similar the comparison, the closer the sales price will be to what your home is really worth.
Find Your Price-Per-Square-Foot — Price-per-square-foot is one of the primary metrics that house appraisers use to determine the value of a home. The easiest way to determine PPSF is by comparing the home to other similar homes in the area that have sold recently.
