Whether you’re thinking of selling or buying a property, determining its fair value is quite a challenge. You have to calculate it critically and come to the right price which the Islamabad real estate market will respond to while also ensuring that a loss is not incurred. Buying or selling a house is one of the most important financial decisions you will make in your lifetime. Any mistake can have severe and long-term consequences. Therefore, evaluating the right price of a property is very crucial (either as a buyer or a seller).
Here are some ways to rightly determine your property value:
Comparative Market Analysis
The determination of a property’s value is critical. One way to know the right price of your property is to request a comparative market analysis (CMA) from a local real estate agent. The agent will provide a value estimate, typically for listing purposes. However, you must be cautious because if they find out that you are selling or buying a property, they will try to get involved (for their profit).
Use Property Portals
Many Islamabad real estate websites also publish information about recently sold homes on their websites. Before making any telephonic calls or visiting any offices, conducting an online search is a good first step. That way, you can get a sense of what information is available without causing too much trouble for yourself. These online portals act as a middleman between buyers and sellers, as well as providing information on property prices.
It takes the right person to put things the right way. No matter how knowledgeable you might be, a realtor will always make a better deal than you (when it comes to determining property value). They have their methods for determining the value of a property, which can be very useful. Realtors typically look for recently sold homes that are similar in the following ways:
- Number of bedrooms/bathrooms
- Style and views
- Property type
- Recent sales price
They will easily tell you how much your home is worth based on this.
Compare property rates
Look out for comparable properties in your neighbourhood or nearby locations which were sold in the last three months.’ Comparable’ here refers to properties that are similar in size, style, age and location. You can get an idea of the price range of a similar home in your area by talking to local dealers or neighbours.
Once you’ve finished comparing at least 3 properties, adjust the final selling price by adding or subtracting from each amount. If your property is comparatively newer, larger and has additional features, you add up the cost to the final sale price. Perhaps, this is the most complicated step as it requires a lot of calculation based on several aspects of the property.
However, a thorough assessment is beneficial to evaluate the right price for your property.
Add the adjusted and final sale prices of all three comparable properties to get their sum. To get an average adjusted final price, divide the total by three. This amount represents the estimated market value of your home.
