When your search leads to a property in which you want to make an offer your realtor can create a comparative market analysis (CMA report). The CMA will help determine that properties current value. A CMA requires a through knowledge of the dynamics of property sales in a specific ares to make judgments based on the information available. When conducting your CMA your realtor will identify comparable properties whose sales prices will help determine the probable value of the property you want to buy.

Even within groups of comparable properties there will be important differences. Your realtor will consider difference in lot or acreage size, as well as, feature differences such as number of bedrooms and bathrooms. They will also look at financing differences that could have influenced sales price. A well researched CMA will give you the confidence to submit a viable offer on your dream home.
