How can I find out what my home is worth?

There are several ways to estimate your home’s worth, each with varying degrees of accuracy. The best place to start is by using several online home valuation tools. These tools will only take the public information about the home and the market into consideration—not any upgrades, maintenance issues, or amenities—so it may not be accurate. If you have a real estate agent, they can run a comparative market analysis and factor in their knowledge of your home’s condition and the market to provide a more accurate home worth estimate. The most accurate way to determine your home worth is to hire an appraiser.
