Buying or Selling a Home/fair market value


Hello Ted,
What's the best and most accurate way to determine the fair market value for your house in specific years? Which websites should I use to help me? I've searched for MLS listings for homes similar to mine, and I see there's a wide range in both asking and selling prices. Realtors have valued my property at various prices. Thank you in advance for your reply.

Zillow is one website that has values, sometimes OK.
Getting 3 opinion of value from RE Agents is another and
past sales, using square footage prices is a third.
You may also hire a professional appraiser, ask your bank mortgage officer
for a name, cost you a few dollars.
Best of luck,
