See if you can find an agent in the area that is also a certified appraiser. An appraisal is much more accurate than an agents comparative analysis. I am both a certified appraiser and sales agent, I provide a full appraisal for my customers thinking of listing. An appraisal is more detailed and accurate than a CMA.

Ask a trusted Real Estate Agent to compare recently sold homes that are similar to yours to know what the market is like in your area. Be honest with the condition of your home and let the market determine the value and not your biases.

Ask your real estate agent to show you recently sold homes in your area that compare to yours. Also take a look at similar homes in your neighborhood that are currently for sale.

At the moment, if your Westchester county neighborhood is congruent with what is happening here in South Florida (where New Yorkers move after they sell) sellers are pushing their asking prices higher and higher each time another home sells in the neighborhood.

This tends to move asking prices into places where mortgage appraisers fear to tread.  If you compare your home - rationally - to the latest two or three comparable sales -- you'll find the per square foot value of the home.

Decide if the appearance of the inside and / or outside of your home and your home's amenities are better or worse than the comparables.

Once you make that decision, you'll have a pretty good idea of what your home is worth today. Now, look once again at the prices of the other homes for sale. If they're well above the last selling prices, price a bit lower.  If their prices are just a bit above the comparable sales, decide how fast you want to sell and price accordingly.

Alice, you will want to contact an agent in your area for this. Ask your friends and colleagues for references to a few agents that you can call and talk to. Good luck.
