You can ask any realtor to give you value of your home, they can run comps in your area and let you know what things are selling for.

Best thing to do is call a Realtor you trust.  They will be able to obtain information easier and faster than you because of their access to the MLS.  We're trained at how to compare properties and use methods similar to appraisers.  Most Realtors won't mind doing this service for free in hopes that it will lead to them listing your home.

Just curious if you successfully sold your home? I see your original post was in May so hopefully you have closed by now. If not please let me know if there is anything I can do to help!

Dominic is right, however I highly advise you have the Realtor sit with you and show you the process they use to determine value. It'll make a whole lot more sense and you'll have the confidence he or she didn't hide anything. Also you should be aware that all Realtors are not the greatest at determining values. Realtors that are NABPOP certified are the closest you'll get to an appraisal.

Ps. I obviously I am NABPOP certified. It stands for National Association of Broker Price Opinion Professionals. It's the highest training a Realtor can get for determining value aside from Appraisal training. I hope this info helps you : )

The best way to estimate the value of your property, aside from an actual appraisal is to contact an experience Realtor in the area where the home is located and ask for a CMA. The Realtor has access to the most up to date information on all of the recent real estate activity in your market and can provide the best estimate of your homes value.

You can check if we have Zestimate for your home on the website by doing a search on this page. However, this value is not an actual appraisal of the property. It is just a starting point in determining you home's value.

You may click on this link for more information about the Zestimate value.

Thank you.

Talking with a Realtor is your best option to get an accurate understanding of the value of your home in a very dynamic market.

You can get  free CMA or spend around $400 for a an appraisal like Derrick Carlson suggested.

ATTN MODERATOR: my post below had links to another Zillow thread how is that a violation of the good neighbor policy?? I did not link to my site I linked to Zillow's forum with information pertaining to this thread. Not sure why the free exchange of information is such a threat to Zillow especially when the links were to your own site. Please explain.

I see you bought it in Dec 2012 for $285k. Are you trying to flip the property? Are you still interested in selling it? The market is about to soften. I would sell now an cash out your profits. You can then buy again in softer market. Thus enabling yourself to sell high and buy low again.

Inventory is on the rise and has been week after week for months now. We were around 3000 available homes in April and now over 7000. You should sell now while it is a seller's market and you can still get top dollar for your property. [Hotlinks removed by Zillow moderator. Please see our Good Neighbor Policy for information.]

If I can be of any more help please let me know.

Find a local agent and ask them to send you the 3 most recent sold/active homes, within 1/2 mile, close in sf and age to your property. This will give you the best up to date value on your property. Wishing you the best of luck!

There is a home that was the same sqft as yours in the same neighborhood without a pool (which I see yours has a pool) that has sold for $375k on June 24, 2013. Are you interested in selling your home?

I think it is best to get a licensed agent in your area to give you up to date comps. They will know your market and be able to provide you with the best information.

If you are interested in selling your home, you can contact a local experienced Realtor to have a competitive market analysis done.  It can help determine what to list your home for.

Homes in Southern Nevada have appreciated 25-40% in the last 12 months depending on where your home is located. Lack of inventory has created an environment where most listings are getting multiple offers and selling for more than list price at present. The true value of your home is what a ready,willing and able buyer will pay for it. Your area in Seven Hills is a highly desirable area.The best thing to do is contact an experienced agent and go over the recent sales ( and I mean very recent sales) close to you to get a good idea of what your home is worth. It is probably more than you think. Good luck.

Always the first step is to contact a local professional in your area. They will be able to look at other homes in the area have sold for, going a lot of times by price per sq. foot then any other amenities the home may offer. You're headed in the right direction by first asking questions.

Contact a realtor in your area and have them do a CMA for your property.
Depending on age, square footage, room/bath count, and sold properties in your area. That should give you an idea of the value, but the only true way to determine value is an actual full URAR (Appraisal).

I hope that helps!

Your local realtor should be able to meet with you and tour your home. get lists of what your home has , such and how many bed/ bath, granite countertops,woodfloors ,etc, then match them with comparables that have sold recently. this will give you a pretty good idea of what your home is worth.
thanks

You can contact me and I will pull up the comparable sales in your neighborhood and determine the range of sales in the last 3 months. Then we can figure in your upgrades and condition. Thank You Suzie Marquardt
