What's Your Home Worth?
It's back-to-school time--a time when many people put the lazy days of summer behind them and review their plans for the future. But before you make any home-related plans, you should do a little homework to find out how today's real estate market is affecting your home's value. Only a Professional Market Analysis will take the guesswork out of knowing what your home is worth.

An up-to-date analysis can help you:

  • Decide if now is the best time to move up to your next home or maybe even your dream home.
  • Set the right selling price for your home--to maximize your profit and make your sale as speedy as possible.
  • Make an informed decision if you are considering refinancing your home.
  • Decide if a remodeling project is a sound investment based on the market in your neighborhood, and if you would be able to recoup money invested in a re- do.
  • Check if your home is adequately insured to its current worth and the worth of your current possessions.
  • Help you make an informed decision when planning your estate or writing your will.



To calculate your home's value, we will:

  • Evaluate your home's size and its location, along with the sizes of its rooms and lot.
  • Look at the condition and appearance of your home's interior and exterior. We can suggest repairs or updates that you can do to help you get the most for your home if you decide to sell.
  • Compare your home with properties in your area that are currently for sale or that have recently sold.
  • Review your home's assessed value, its previous sales prices, average maintenance and utility costs, and local taxes.
  • Consider current market conditions, interest rates and lending criteria.

Don't Miss Out
Your home is most likely your single largest investment-make sure you take advantage of it. Get a professional estimate of your home's value--don't leave it to chance. If you'd like your home professionally analyzed, please call us. We would be glad to help you start off right by helping you find out what your home is worth today.

What Price For The White House?
What would you pay for a home with 132 rooms, 35 bathrooms, 28 fireplaces and 3 elevators?

That's just what HouseValues, Inc. wanted to know; so it asked the nation's top real estate agents to estimate what the White House's listing price would be if it were for sale in today's real estate market.

After reviewing the home's features, including its condition, number of bedrooms and baths, square footage and historical significance (many of the elements that go into preparing a good comparative market analysis), the agents' answered that the famous colonial-style mansion would command an asking price of $106 million. Of course, to qualify for a jumbo 30-year, fixed-rate loan at 7.5 percent, and assuming 10 percent down, the proud new owners of the home at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue would need to pull down an annual salary of at least $18 million in order to make the $667,000 monthly mortgage payment.

But, hey, it boasts a number of sought-after amenities, including a tennis court, jogging track, swimming pool, movie theater, billiard room, bowling lane, and its own dentist's office. The gardens are nice, too! For more historical facts about the White House, visit www.whitehouse.gov/history/facts.html.
