Built our own home

My husband and I built our home ourselves.  It's fairly non-traditional, composting toilet, big barn doors, only 900sq ft., and some of the interior is still unfinished.  How should we go about pricing it?  Our home is on 3.5 acres.

How on Earth would we be able to price it for you with that being all we know. Barn Doors on a house would be a negative and 900 sq ft is not big. Composting toilet sounds like an outhouse.

Where is your house located?  How many bedrooms & bathrooms do you have?  When did you and your husband build your house?

With a very unique handmade home appealing to a very small select group of buyers,  a local agent who specializes in that type of home may be able to provide a CMA.     Hopefully you have all the appropriate permits and Certificate of Occupancy.

Yes, I agree.  One of the  responses is rude.

Start with the property tax records from last year. What's the value of the land itself? Next add "improvements" - the actual house you built, and any other buildings on the property etc. All this should be on the property tax records. Then sum everything up, add what you think would be a good price and go from there maybe. Any fenced pastures? Land is in demand. Least where I am it is....:D

If i were you i would try to get a value on the land itself either by recent sales in the area to get an aprox estimate per acre.  The home itself is going to be very hard to estimate due to the fact its not of the norm.  I would estimate the land and add in your costs to build the home to give you an aprox value - honestly depending on your area they most likely will be buying your home for land value.
