Zillow Advice: Home Selling - how can I find out what my home is worth? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/how-can-I-find-out-what-my-home-is-worth/347684/ Zillow Advice | Zillow Real Estate Besides the obvious, look ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/how-can-I-find-out-what-my-home-is-worth/347684/ Besides the obvious, look at these; since we don't know your exact circumstances:<br/><br/>1.) If you sell the home to someone who cannot qualify for a loan yet, but will be able to do so at a later date, you will get a higher price.<br/><br/>2.) Can your property be bundled with other parcels adjacent to you and converted to commercial zoning for a higher price when sold for commercial use?<br/><br/>3.) Rental properties carry different value and allows income to be earned while holding the property to sell at a appreciated price in the future. (Are you located where your property could be used by a cellular phone service provider to place a signal tower there?)<br/><br/>4.) Do you foresee a government agency annexing your proprty to make improvements to a public right-of-way?<br/><br/>That's all I got!
