(comparative market analysis) If your not working with an agent, ask one to do this for you. I would have two or three agents draw this up for you and see what they have to say. Then if you want to put it on the market, compare what different agents offer, and go with the one you mesh best with. Let me know if you have further questions on this.

If you are in a mid to large condo building perhaps there have been some similar sales. <br/>If you are looking to refinance you will need to deal with a bank and they will hire an appriser and they will charge you for it.<br/><br/>philip Mon, 25 Oct 2010 16:32:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-do-I-get-a-estimate-on-my-home/372551/ 2010-10-25T16:32:00Z Good morning jlmac21,Send ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-do-I-get-a-estimate-on-my-home/372551/ Good morning jlmac21,<br/><br/>Send me your address and i would be happy to help.&nbsp; I get within 5% most of the time and am much cheaper than an appraisal.<br/><br/>Ryan Gossett<br/>[contact info removed by moderator] Mon, 25 Oct 2010 16:31:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-do-I-get-a-estimate-on-my-home/372551/ 2010-10-25T16:31:00Z Zillow is not an appraisal.&nbsp;To ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-do-I-get-a-estimate-on-my-home/372551/ Zillow is not an appraisal.&nbsp;To get a Zestimate, you can go&nbsp;<u><a style="text-align: right;" href="http://www.zillow.com/">here</a></u>&nbsp;enter the address in the Find Homes box and hit the blue GO button.
