There are a number of sites on the internet that will give you ‘estimates’ for what your home will sell for. These sites use public records and usually some kind of algorithm to try to produce a value for your home. These sites also publicly state their ‘error rates’. That means they aren’t correct. They are simply an estimate based on incomplete (and highly subjective) data. We would be happy to provide a free comparative market analysis of your home area and let you know what could reasonably expect to get in today’s market if you are considering selling a home. Our valuation is based on the latest available data. Our valuation is not based on a formula that relies on public records, which can take months to update. If you want us to analyze your property and give you a professional estimate of market price, feel free to fill out the “CONTACT ME” form near the top right page of my web site: www.baystatehomefinder.com

If you are thinking about selling your property, I would welcome you to evaluate my professional services page dedicated to helping home owners maximize your equity.
