Recent Home Sales in My Area

Friday, June 6, 2008

Hello Hampton Roads,

Have you ever asked yourself, "What are recent home sales in my area?"

If you are considering selling your home, knowledge of the Hampton Roads housing market in general and the recent comparable home sales in particular, are important to know. This information will help you make an educated decision on how to value your home.

In addition to the information found on each city's real estate assessment websites, there are some free online resources to help assist you:

For recent (since 2007) real estate transactions on the Southside, use the Virginian-Pilot's online property transfer search tool.

For real estate on the Peninsula sold from mid-2005 to the present, use the Daily Press property transfer database search tool.

The best way (short of ordering an appraisal) to determine the value of your home is to have a local Realtor prepare a CMA (Comparative Market Analysis) showing you most recent sales activity of comparable homes within your neighborhood. For a complimentary CMA for your home in Hampton Roads, visit "Determine Your Home's Value" and fill in the requested information.


If you have any specific questions about selling you home, please feel free to contact me directly.
