Understanding Home Values is Critical if Buying or Selling a Home





If youâre buying a home or selling a home, what is the best way to obtain an accurate value of your home? Fortunately, thereâs a simple answer.

Who would have believed 20 years ago that the rising values of homes in Highland Park and Eagle Rock - as well as real estate in Mt. Washington and in Glassell Park - would be the talk of the town? If you own a home in one of these regions - or are looking to buy a home - odds are that home values are on your mind.

Regardless of whether youâre looking to buy a home or sell a home, it only makes sense that you will eventually want to gain an understanding of your own homeâs value, if youâre selling, or the value of a different home if youâre thinking of buying.

But with all the information, articles, blogs and website tools out there offering home evaluations, its become easy to get, well, confused. Thatâs because as youâre performing your research and due diligence, the first thing youâll notice is that there is little consistency in the values offered. One home evaluation will be wildly different from the one before or after.

The reasonable question is, why? How? Thereâs a simple, straightforward answer: There are actually two types of values of homes - automated home values and manual home evaluations. Of course, thereâs a big difference between the two.

Automated home values are very useful as a general reference tool, to give you a rough idea of what your home or any other home may be worth in the current market. And sometimes a general, rough idea is a good place to begin.

Letâs be honest, though.

Every home is unique. This is especially true in the neighborhoods of Northeast LA where tract homes donât really exist. Most every neighborhood in the region is dotted with custom homes and itâs rare to find one that is like another. With tract homes, comparisons, or âcompsâ of similar homes that have been sold could help us gain insight into what another home may sell for. For other neighborhoods, it just doesnât work that way.

Also, there are all sorts of renovations, upgrades and features that arenât reflected in automated home values. Added up, these renovations and upgrades can make a considerable difference in the homeâs value and the final buying or selling price.

For instance, there is no way possible that an online tool can know if a homeowner has refurbished the kitchen or the master bath. It doesnât know if all the 80âs era carpet has been replaced with beautiful bamboo wood or magnesite. It might not even know if a room addition occurred since the last time the home was sold.

So the next reasonable question is, how do you, as a home seller, learn the true value of your home?

Thatâs where a skilled and experienced real estate agent comes in. A local professional real estate agent knows what sells ... and what doesnât. They know what buyers will pay more for, and how much that renovation really will net you in a home sale. Most importantly, they can provide you with a much more accurate and precise value of your home.

Why Does Location Matter for Home Buying in Los Angeles

What Does it Mean to Sell Your NELA Home As Is

Even for the most ardent viewers of the television fix-and-sell home shows – from “Flip this House” to “Take This House and Sell It” to “The Real Estate Pros” to “Designed to Sell” – it’s not always clear if a home should be renovated and repaired before selling, or be sold “as-is.” This is a common question in...

The Rules of Attending Open Houses in Northeast LA
Shopping for a home is fun for many people. And while signs for open houses suggest come-one-come-all, you should be both polite and strategic. The real estate sales technique of open houses has taken a hit in recent years. With online listings - complete with photos and videos - much of the preliminary shopping individuals do is from their personal computer. But one can get much more out of the experience of actually being in the home, getting a sense of the quality of materials, the...
