Meet with a real estate agent - they will be able to tell you what you can realistically list the home for.

Alan, you can usually get an idea about the value of your home by looking up recent sales of that are comparable to yours. However, I work with several real estate agents that would be happy to give you an idea. Call me at 813-359-7196 and we can talk about the agent closest to your location.

Hello Mr. Alan, the best way to do this is have a realtor do a comparable market analysis. This may be the closest to an appraisal. Its difficult to search the MLS for sold homes without being a member. You may want to check the property appraisers website to see if they offer recent sold homes in your area. Hope this helps.Eddie Rutledge321-704-0195

AS suggested by others, pick a Realtor you'd like to work with and have them do the CMA. There is no cost to you, they'd just like the opportunity to list the property when you are ready. Good luck!
