Why You Need a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA)

A personalized comparative market analysis provides you a measurement of the actual market value of your home. However it will not, tell you how much a bank will lend a buyer. Banks base their mortgage underwriting policies on the appraised value and not on the offering price of a home.

Appraisals only a reflection of what the bank is likely willing to lend, but they do not always represent the market value of a home. Although a professional appraisers will compare your home to other homes that sold in the area in the same way as a comparative market analysis does, the results can often be strikingly different. The reason for this is that appraisers are conservative at arriving at the values they place on properties.
