Frequently I receive emails or calls from individuals researching homes for sale in Brevard County, Florida. Many times the home they are asking about is no longer on the market. It was sold months ago.
Likewise, when I speak to some who are considering selling their Brevard County, Florida home, they quote values that are inconsistent with the current Florida real estate market.
Sometimes the value quoted is a pie in the sky figure based on a complex calculation including what they paid plus a profit plus the additions/updates made over the past five years plus...well, you get the point.
Sometimes the figure is based on a major website that provides real estate data nationwide.
In both of the above situations they are working with inaccurate data.
Real estate decisions need to be based on solid information.
That information is available from local sources - your Realtor® using local data (the MLS system) and local market knowledge.
