Under most circumstances (those considering selling their houses), CMA are done at no charge. Providing a CMA gives the real estate agents the opportunity to introduce themselves, demonstrate local knowledge of the market, their expertise and win your business. Think of it as a quote at no cost which many businesses do. But......if you are looking for a CMA with no intent of listing or selling your property with a real estate agent, than you should expect to pay for the work that goes into a CMA. I typically charge between $ 50 to $ 100 under such a situation. Basically, my cost. Remember to treat others like you wish to be treated.
Please understand this is my opinion and I am not an appraiser. To simplify square footage below grade (in the basement) is valued at $ 20.00 to $ 30.00 per foot.
I received such an e-mail - ignore it or make sure you have Identity Lock or some such service that guards and insures you against identity thieves.
Hi Vonialee:What you need to answer this question is a professional in the field of handling money. This is a difficult question that only a financial advisor or account can answer for you. That is where I would go and I am a real estate agent and Realtor.Van Wilkerson, The Maine Real Estate Network, 887 Roosevelt Trail, Windham, ME, [contact info removed by moderator]
