The first question we ask ourselves after we decide to sell our home is, "How much is my home worth?" After all, a home is an investment and we'd want to know how much we can earn from it or at least recover. Property valuation however, is determined by many factors and variables that may be beyond our control. Determinants such as location are quite obvious, as the pricing of a home is subject to the sometimes unpredictable behavior of your local real estate market. But there are also other things such as the size, age, condition or state of your property, as well as the all-important timing of your big sell that will ultimately affect your home's price tag. Having an understanding of these will help you come up with a good strategy for selling your home.
