Find a local real estate agent and ask them to provide a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) for your home.  Generally the agent will use the most recent sales of homes similar to, and located near yours. 

Ask your agent to drop off the CMA at your home.  Then ask them to explain or walk you through the process so that you have a full understanding of how your home's estimated value was computed. If you have doubts of this report's accuracy, you can always ask for a second opinion from another agent.

Your local realtor should take the time to do a comprehensive comparison value of your home.  And of course it is worth what people will pay for it.

I agree with Victoria, we as realtors can provide you with an unbiased estimate or opinion of market value (high-low) of your home by performing a Comparative Market Analysis.
The valuation techniques may be similar to different approaches to value employed  by a licensed or certified appraiser.
I hope this information helps!

Hi Lmantooth,

Yes contact alocal Realtor and check with your tax office, they usually
are close on the market value if a recent valuation has been done!

But of course, it also is based on the condition of the properties and neighbors homes!

Zillow doesn't have appraisals, but they do have Zestimates. Try this link hereType the address in the box and hit the blue GO button. If Zillow has it, a map and Zestimate should come up. Click on the home address for more information. 

Zillow is place to start, but getting a more current and accurate value for your specific house may mean hiring an appraiser or contacting a local agent for a CMA. Most agents are happy to help.

To get the most accurate assessment either hire an appraiser or call a local Realtor who knows your area to provide you with a market analysis.
