When I price a home for sale, I usually look at the comparable sales, active listings, upgrades to the home, and any neighborhood amenities such as mountain views, golf course views and other off-site issues that affect the homes value. This is where the Realtor meeting the appraiser at the home is necessary; to point out these issues and to even help the appraiser get some foresight into the future of the area. If all appraisers did was to look at recent sales, then home prices would stand still or plummet because of a vicious circle of the appraisers fearing what will happen to them if they stretch and take into account what the future holds. This is where the Realtor really earns the money! So as you price your home keep in mind that you are not limited to the past sales nor can you justify a price by the market asking prices, but you can get a good general feel for what your home is worth. In places like San Tan Valley that are growing so fast I will often tell a seller on a listing appointment “If you are in no real hurry to sell, hang on because with all of the new retail, schools, and population growth, your home is going to appreciate to the point where it will out weigh the carry cost of the note”.
