Everything you need to know to make your next big move
The first step to figuring out how much you can sell your house for is working with a local real estate expert to draw up a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA). A CMA report is a full in-depth look at not just your home, but similar properties in terms of size, location, condition, and amenities that have sold within the past 3 to 6 months. The only way to accurately determine how much you can get for your home is to compare it to others that have sold recently. Weighing your home against others, along with your real estate agent’s local knowledge of where the housing market in your neighborhood is headed, will help you figure out exactly how much your home is worth.
On average, most regions in the U.S. have a home appreciation rate of roughly 3.5 – 3.8 percent. This is dependant on local housing trends and the economy in general. Southern California real estate however tends to appreciate faster and in 2020 home price appreciation was off the charts. Among SoCal’s six counties, median prices rose 13 percent from 2019 to 2020 according to data released by data firm DQNews.
If you are looking for an indication of what the housing market might look like in 2021 and if you’re thinking about selling your home, it is promising to know that although interest rates are expected to stay relatively consistent through this year and next, the number of homes for sale and the average price of a home is projected to climb.
Whether you’re ready to sell a home tomorrow or in five years, we’re here to help. Our real estate professionals aren’t just agents, they’re lifelong financial guides. Let’s connect and map out your goals and ambitions together.
Worried you’ll be homeless without a replacement home once you sell?

You’ll be the first to see new homes, and our negotiation specialists will help you win the bid and move in before your home sells.
