Tools to Use for Comparative Market Analysis

When you’re selling your home without a realtor, you need to do your own research in order to price your home. Comparative market analysis is used to determine the current market value of your house. Price too high and buyers will be turned off, but price too low and you won’t be getting the full value of what your home is worth. The following tools will help you perform a comparative market analysis to price your home. The more sources you have available, the better you’ll be able to determine what a fair price is.


Property Tax Records

Property tax records are available to the public online, allowing you to search for recent sale prices of similar houses in your neighborhood.

Building Permit Records

You can also find building permit records online which allow you to see what kind of improvements homeowners in your area with similar homes have made, such as additions.

Federal Housing Finance Agency

The FHFA’s website has several tools for your to use for comparative market analysis. Their price index shows home value trends for metropolitan areas, which you can use to get a feel for the current trend in your market. Their house price calculator allows you to input the purchase price for a house in a metropolitan area, which it uses with the price index to calculate the likely market value. However, this does not take into account improvements or individual sale situations.
