What's my home worth? What every homeowner should know.
What's my home worth?
As a homeowner, have you ever asked yourself, "What's my home worth?" If you own a property in San Francisco, it's easy to find your home's value by using our Home Valuation Estimator just by entering your address. The best and most accurate way to find out your property value is to then consult a local San Francisco real estate agent.
Consult a San Francisco Realtor for their expertise.
There are a lot of websites out there that will give you a very quick home estimate by using their special algorithms, but only a real human being will be the most accurate. It's true. Until artificial intelligence (AI) takes over the real estate market, only a human being can properly count square footage, lot size, look at the condition of a property, listen to how noisy a neighborhood/building is, take into account for views, floor plans, upgrades, architecture style, etc.
How long does it take to get a Home Valuation?
In a world where people want things immediately, humans swipe left, swipe right, and constantly move onto the next thing... Just a heads up for you... By using a local San Francisco Realtor to find your property value, this will take your real estate agent some time and there's a good chance you will not get your estimate immediately. In fact, depending on your property, this could take a day or two to accurately report your home's value. One thing I love about this city is that almost every property is 100% different, that's what makes San Francisco, San Francisco. Since every property is different, this makes it just a bit more difficult than just averaging out the price per square foot of sold properties.
I'm not looking to sell immediately so I don't want to bother a real estate agent.
Thank you for the concern and respect for our time. If you are even thinking about selling your property within the next 2 years, it's best to go ahead and contact your agent every six months, kind of like going to the dentist. I promise, your Realtor will not be burdened. Your agent will be able to provide you with data about new listings coming on the market that will be your direct competition with your home. Go ahead and pop into those listings and check out an open house to see what your competition looks like in person.
