One of the most-asked questions we get is how much are homes selling for in Redding? As REALTORS we use a series of steps in determining a home’s value. One of the steps involves checking the recent sales price of similar homes, also known as comps or comparables. If you’re curious about the value of your home you can do a quick check yourself right now.
You can use sales data provided by www.Zillow.com to verify recently sold homes in your area (ideally, within 3-6 months) that are similar to yours. If you plan on selling your home, comparables are a critical piece of the puzzle when figuring out how to price your home for sale. If you would like to verify the number you come up with you’re welcome to contact Parsons Realty for the most recent home sales data in Redding and Shasta County.
The best sales data is always obtained through a REALTOR using the local MLS data. However, for a quick check you may find Zillow.com quite useful. Zillow offers “nearby similar sales” to a home, but you can take this list and create your own set of comparables. For a tutorial on how to use Zillow for this purpose check out the video here.
