Jupiter CMA Tool For Home Sellers

In today’s crazy real estate market, it’s more important than ever for home sellers to be educated on market conditions and what other comparable properties in your city, neighborhood, subdivision, or condo building are either selling for or possibly worth. Understanding comparable sales numbers can certainly help you understand your home’s value, and better yet, how to be as successful as possible when actively putting your home on the market.

More often than not, overpricing a home is the fastest way to lose momentum and interest from potential home buyers, which will almost always leave your home sitting on the market longer, and in many cases, cost the home sellers money.

Generally speaking, the spring season is traditionally one of the busiest times of the year for the real estate market in any part of the country, as many buyers want to ensure they find a great place and are completely settled in by the time the school year and fall season roll back around.

But even despite this busy time of year, the high number of sales last month has many industry professionals believing that the
