Tired of living in the big city? No worries, as there is plenty of demand for residences in cities across the United States.

As a home seller, it is important to learn about a city's housing market. By doing so, you can understand what to expect before you list your property.

Ultimately, selling a home in the city can be a quick and simple process. Here are three tips to ensure you can add your residence to a city's real estate market and maximize the value of your house.

1. Check Out Comparable Residences That Are Currently Available

How does your home stack up against other houses in a particular city? Review comparable homes that are currently available, and you may be able to find ways to differentiate your residence from the competition.

Remember, an informed home seller understands the ins and outs of the local housing market. This individual will learn about his or her property's strengths and weaknesses, and as a result, discover ways to transform assorted home weaknesses into strengths.

Emphasize your city home's interior and exterior as you search for ways to enhance your residence. A clean, uncluttered home interior will make it easy for homebuyers to envision what life would be like if they purchase your house. Meanwhile, a dazzling home exterior will ensure your residence can make an unforgettable first impression on homebuyers.

2. Establish a Competitive Price for Your House

A competitive price can make a world of difference for home sellers in a big city. In fact, a home seller who prices his or her city home aggressively from the get-go may be able to streamline the home selling process.

To determine a fair price for a city residence, assess the prices of recently sold houses in your city. This housing market data will help you determine whether the current real estate market favors homebuyers or home sellers.

Also, don't forget to complete a home appraisal. This home evaluation will enable you to receive expert insights into problem areas throughout your home that you can correct before you list your residence.

3. Collaborate with a Real Estate Agent

A real estate agent is happy to serve home sellers in any way possible. This real estate professional knows what it takes to sell a city home and will allocate the necessary time and resources to promote your residence to the right groups of homebuyers.

With a real estate agent at your side, you should have no trouble stirring up plenty of interest in your city home. A real estate agent will set up home showings and open houses, promote your residence on social media and much more. Perhaps best of all, this real estate professional will respond to your home selling queries at any time.

Don't leave anything to chance as you prepare to sell your city home. Use these home selling tips, and you can increase the likelihood that you'll be able to maximize the value of your residence.

When you’re buying or selling a home, you may hear the terms, “assessed value” and “market value.” There are few things that you should know about these terms. First, they cannot be used interchangeably. The assessed value is generally much less than the market value. If you’re buying a home, you probably would rather see the assessed value of the home as a price! If you’re selling, the same holds true for the market value of the home for you.


Market Value Is Used Differently Than Assessed Value


The market value is how much your home is worth on the market currently. The definition is exactly as the term sounds the home is looked at by an assessor and given a value. The assessed value is used to determine property taxes, among other things. As you can imagine, the assessed value can become a point of contention for many homeowners especially when it comes to paying their tax bills. Many homes end up being assessed at a higher price than their current value, bringing tax bills to higher levels. The market value is what the home will sell for when it is listed for sale.


Be careful when searching for a home to buy. Many sites list the assessed value along with the price of the home or estimated market value of the home. You don’t want to get these numbers confused when budgeting and searching for the perfect house. 


If you’re getting ready to sell your home, pay little attention to the assessed value of the home. That is not what your home will sell for. 


The market value is a good reason to hire a realtor to help you sell your home. Realtors are experts in finding the market values of homes. They will even do something called a CMA (comparative market analysis) for you to help you determine the right price for your home to sell at. This is where comparable properties in the area are examined for their selling prices and all the perks of your home and neighborhood are considered. The market value is determined by the price of the homes that have recently been sold in the area based on the location of the home and how close it is to certain amenities like schools, parks, and the probability of future construction. 


Finally, know that the market value and the appraised value of a home have a lot to do with how much a lender will give you to buy the property. Every home that is being bought must go through an appraisal, to protect the lender from overpaying for a home.    


Whether you’re buying or selling a home, knowing your value terms can really be a help in understanding the sweet spot for pricing a property
