How To Assess Your Client's Home Value? | MailBag | Q&A

You ask questions, and I answer them. This week, the question is, "How do I properly assess my client's home value?" Jessica L.

Here's the technique I've used for years--bracketing. Bracketing is also used by real estate appraisers and encompasses preparing comps as well as a range of values for the property.

First, I prepare a few comps before meeting the seller, and then present three different price points around the home's true street value:

👉 Below market value

👉 Right at market value

👉 Above market value

This method takes the pressure off you, the agent, and allows the seller to feel ownership over the process.
