Comparative market analysis is a tool that helps sellers to know about how much their home is worth. It gives an overview of what a good price for the home is in the current market based on comparable properties. Different realtors have different practices as to how they present this information. CMAs can vary from a two page list to a 50-page guide. The reports vary as to how in-depth they get as well. The important things is the information that they contain. 


What Data Does A Comparative Market Analysis Contain?


  • Active listings of homes currently for sale
  • Homes that are pending being listed
  • Homes that have sold in the past 6 months
  • Off market homes
  • Homes that have withdrawn from the market
  • Cancelled listings


Why Homes May Have Been Taken Off The Market


Homes can go on and off the market for a variety of reasons. These reasons include sellerís remorse, high pricing, requests for repairs, or the seller may have hired a completely new agent.


Looking At Comparable Sales


Comparable sales are the homes that have recently sold and are most closely related to your home. Youíll want to find the homes on the list that are most like your home. When finding comparable homes, take the following into consideration:


  • Similar square footage
  • Same rough age
  • Comparable condition
  • Similar upgrades
  • Close proximity to the same neighborhoods, schools, and amenities


Itís important when youíre using these comparative reports that you find homes on the list that are very similar to your own. You donít want to be comparing the price of an 8-room split level with an 11-room colonial. You also need to keep in mind that there are some neighborhoods that are more desirable than others. If one house is much closer to a sought after school than your home, youíll need to take that into consideration for a price point. 


Location


Location may be one of the most valuable things about your home that you canít really change. Buyers seek to live in a certain area of town and are willing to pay top dollar to do so. If you find that nearby homes are selling for much more or much less than homes even closer to yours, the location of your home may be a huge factor.  


The comparative market analysis is just one tool that your real estate agent uses to help you price your home just right and use the right marketing tools to sell it. These reports help you to be an informed seller. Comparative market analysis reports are just one more good reason that you need a real estate agent to help you sell your home.

Do the walls of your home ever feel bland and uninviting? What you need for your home is to add depth to the walls. Everything from the colors of the walls to what you place on them helps to give your rooms a feeling of sophisticated complexity. 


Try Using Contrast On Your Walls


If you choose a dark color for your walls, you can use bright colors as a contrast to bring out the prominent features of the room. 


Use Texture On Your Walls


You donít have to rely on paint to color your walls. Itís a good idea for you to use some tapestry or cloth and hang it on the walls to help add texture and depth to a room.


Reflect On The Room


Using mirrors can help to make any room appear bigger. Mirrors are deceiving in a way, but when placed strategically, they can really add a lot to a room. Allowing for reflections in the room also adds depth and a larger feeling to the space, 


DonĎt Make A Space Too Busy


Avoid using a lot of colors in a room. While contrasting colors add something special to a space, bright, mismatched colors will only make you dizzy. 


Make Use Of Tile


Particularly in kitchens and bathrooms, tile can help to add some depth to the space. Your kitchen can be painted a lovely color and finding tiles to match for a backsplash can really help the room to stand out. Even the color grout that you use can help add complexity to a room. If you have brick, wood, or any kind of stone present in a room, be sure to help those features stand out. The best way to approach design sometimes is to take what you see in nature and bring it into your space. From earth tones to highlighting the natural features in your home, you can really make your home feel well-rounded from the inside out. 


Try Painting The Walls Different Colors


Thereís no rule that says you need to paint a room all one color. Often, you can add a lot to a room just by having that one accent wall. Putting the piece of furniture that will be the focal point of the room on the accent wall can really bring out the features of the room. If your color scheme is leaning towards blues and whites, for example, paint each wall white except for one. Choose an alluring shade of blue for the accent wall. Be sure that your furniture matches with whatever wall color scheme that you choose as well.                 

Whether youíre recreating a room completely, or simply re-purposing what you have, itís easy to make your design work for you and provide complexity and depth.
