Answer: Please do NOT use Trulia, Zillow or any other online site to guess what your home is worth.Contact your real estate agent so he or she can pull the actual competitors in your area and let you know what your home is worth. You can also always get a current appraisal on your home so you will know exactly what your home is worth in today’s market. This is very helpful in determining where your home needs to be priced not only to sell it quickly, but to use as a negotiation tool when buyers try to beat you down on the price of your home. This will also allow for you not to be surprised if you have your home under contract and it’s contingent on financing.
