Keeping pace with an ever-evolving local market is important, but finding reliable information can be a challenge. Patterson-Schwartz understands this challenge and is pleased to announce a new partnership with CloudCMA and Homebeat, leaders in the home valuation tool industry.
What is a CMA?
A Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) is the term real estate professionals use when they conduct an in-depth analysis of a home’s current worth based on the prices of similar active, pending, and sold properties in the area. Real estate professionals present a CMA to their clients to help them determine a price when listing a home or making an offer to buy a home.
CloudCMA provides our sales associates with the real-time data and innovative tools necessary to guide clients through crucial price-related decisions. When it comes time to list your home for sale, you can depend on our sales associates to provide the very best CMA reporting and personalize it to you. In the meantime, how can you stay informed on the market and begin to understand the true value of your home?
A local real estate expert is your best resource
A flood of websites out there promise an instant value for your home, but, in reality, they are rarely accurate. There are so many factors that contribute to a property’s value that these online models overlook, including the property’s condition. Only a licensed real estate professional familiar with your area can give you a true idea of what your home is worth. In that regard, you should avoid relying solely on a website to determine your home’s value, but understanding local housing trends is a great place to start.
