Discover What Buyers Will Pay in Today’s Market
It’s easy to look up how much money you have in your savings account or the real-time value of your stock investments. But determining the dollar value of a home is trickier.
As a seller, knowing your home’s worth helps you price it correctly when you put it up for sale. If you price it too high, it may sit on the market.

Which comes first ... Buy your new dream home? 
That's the fun part - shopping and buying - and you don't want to miss out on your dream home!  Many people need to sell their current house in ordder to be able to afford a new home.  Even if you can get a loan for the purchase, can you really afford to make 2 payments?   For how long?
