The housing market is really hot right now. Home values are up considerably, and continue to rise. When the market is on the move, we’re all naturally interested in what homes are going for in our area, where prices may be headed, and what our own home may be worth. But how do we make sense of all the noise? We’re getting information flying at us from every direction – a local agent may leave a flyer at your door showing what they’re listing similar homes for right now; you might listen to a friend talk about what they just got for their home, or see a listing pop up on your own street. Or if you’ve ever been on sites like Zillow or Trulia, you may have emails coming at you every few weeks, telling you what their estimate of your home value is.
