Hello Cathryne:The price difference could be a multiple factors and you should get a couple more CMA's from different agents from other companies or hire a licensed appraiser to help you. I put more weight on sold homes within the last couple of months if there is any, not knowing where or what features your home has it is hard to say. There is also some differences between appraisers so you might want to interview a couple of them too. Best of luck and if you have any questions you can contact me.
Neither CMA will be "right", but one may be more realistic. All good advice below, however I would not recommend selecting your real estate agent based on their price recommendation. You want someone you can work with, who will give you good advice (whether or not it is what you want to hear) and who will market your property to get your home sold for the best price in a reasonable time.
When comparing real estate agent CMA's I would always look at the evidence (comparable homes) that agents are basing their information from. Make sure the homes you are comparing match bedrooms, bath, and similar square footage. Next, you should always put a majority of the weight on sold homes before looking at anything else. After you have a strong idea of what a home matching your bedrooms, bath, and square footage would sell for, I would then compare and contrast the differences in your home to others. It is always best to see the inside of homes you are comparing but you will most likely have to take your agents word for that. After knowing what homes have sold for in your area and neighborhood I would then compare your house to other homes currently listed. Your expected home value should fall between the sold homes and active listings. If your home does have some major upgrades and substantial reasoning, you may be able to receive a little more money from your home. There is a lot of information to review and think about. It is never an easy answer and you will usually see varying opinions.
Take your time reviewing the information and best wishes on your sale.
