Visit a Real Estate office near you, speak to a realtor that focus on your area, ask for a comparable within 6 months sold properties in the area your in. That won't take them more than 20 mins, to give you an estimate.

This would all depend on your reason for needing such a valuation. Are you looking to find out a value for perhaps total assets owned? Are you looking to find out value for taking out a mortgage on your home? Are you just curious and need an "estimate"?

The first two can be obtained with a professional appraiser doing such work in your area. The third one can be done easily through the Zillow site.

If you are looking to sell your home, then look for well qualified and professional Realtors in your area to simply interview with them on what can be done. Their job is to "sell" your home so interview them for the job needed. The point of Realtor"s" is made since you need to feel secure with the choice of choosing such a person to handle best the selling of your home.

Call an agent to do comps. You should have a close ball park to your price. And if you want to sell be priced lower than anyone that's comparable to your home

Call a Realtor who works in your neighborhood. Most likely, you have received something in the mail from them. Ask them to provide you with a Comparative Market Analysis. This will compare the features of your home with other similar homes in your neighborhood. Based on this the Realtor can you an opinion of the value of your neighborhood. If you need this information for insurance or tax purposes, be upfront with the Realtor about the reason for your request. If you are considering selling your home, then talk with two or three Realtors in your area. But don't list your home with the Realtor that gives you the highest price opinion because you like the price. List with the Realtor that gives you an unbiased opinion about the value of your property and who you think will do the best marketing your home.

You can have a Realtor run sales comparables in your neighborhood to give you a reasonably good idea of what the home would likely value out and sell for.
