Help Me Donna, I have a real estate question 

 How is the value of a home determined?





The short of it is basically this: What you paid for your home is ultimately what it is worth. Other than that, everything else is just an estimate of value. For example when demand is high for residential housing and the inventory of homes for sale is low, homes typically sell above the asking price.  Buyers bid up the price so as not to risk losing the home to another buyer or when another offer is on the table. When a "meeting of the minds" between buyer and seller takes place, the fair market value or worth is established.

The North Georgia market is a very opportunistic market for buyers and sellers.  When do you think you will be making your next real estate move?  Call Donna Today ! 706-633-0644

Sometimes home owners don't realize it is what a motivated seller and buyer, under no pressure, agree upon...that is truly what it is worth.  Now what it will appraise for is another story!

Gary:  Appraisal! now that can certainly be challenge these days!

There does seem to be a misconception of what the "value" of their real estate is in this market.

Posted by Kathy Sheehan, Senior Loan Officer (Bay Equity, LLC 770-634-4021) about 8 years ago

Kathy: Agreed.  I think sometimes the word "estimate" gets lost in the discussion.  Estimate is not absolute.
