What is my property worth?
It is an important question most people ask when they consider selling their property. The answer can be surprisingly subjective, but a professional real estate agent has tools they can use to find an objective answer. However, the seller the has the final say on the sale price, so never feel pressured into too low or too high a price if that is not want you want. It's your property and your decision.
METHODS OF PROPERTY VALUATION
Direct Comparison Approach
A professional looks at recent sales in the same neighborhood and takes into account the differences in the properties calculates a value that a buyer would be willing to pay under the same market conditions. This method works best if there have been a lot of recent sales, providing a good source of data to compare the seller's property.
This approach looks at what the site (land) is worth today, adds a value for improvements (buildings) and subtracts the depreciation (age) to come up with a current market value. However, the value of improvements changes over time and an older house with similar features to a new structure will likely not be valued as high in today's market.
Income (Investment) Approach
For commercial and investment properties, including farmland, a potential buyer will look at the revenue minus expenses that a property will incur over a given period of time. Then they take the projected income, divide it by the sale price and find their rate of return. The net operating income is then divided by the rate of return to reach a market value. In this way, investors can compare which properties will give them the greatest rate of return on their investment.
