What are the steps done to determine the worth of a home? Real estate agents conduct a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) where they analyze the prices of recently sold similar homes in the area. They assess the competition and the current trends in the market to determine the final listing price. The steps involved in performing CMA are 1) Research; 2) Analyze; and 3) Report to the client. Agents have access to an extensive and comprehensive database of all the purchases and sales of similar homes in the area. They analyze the data they have gathered and put the result in form and shape to meet the seller’s wants and needs. Buyers go through a similar process to determine a good offer price.

A CMA is not the only indicator of a home’s worth. There are other determining factors that affect the listing price such as 1) Location, 2) Age & Condition, 3) Home Size, and 4) Economic Indicators. Homes that are near to schools, workplaces, hospitals, public transit and shopping centers are valued more. The general appearance and condition of the house has an effect on its overall value. Appraisers evaluate the repairs needed, general wear and tear, and critical parts of the home like heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems, plumbing, electrical, and roof. In most cases, a bigger house is valued at a higher price. The envelope dimensions of the house and certain allowable square footages can be added together to provide an average cost per square foot. This cost can then be used to see how the home’s average square foot dollar amount compares with similar properties in the same neighborhood
