Hernando County Florida Home Values: How Much Is Your Home Worth?

Taking Stock of Your Hernando County Home’s Value
Home Value Estimate: a Starting Point

Figuring out home values when the market is in flux is truly a job for experts. We have seen the national real estate market begin to rebound, and expect Hernando Countyhome values to soon start to reflect movement as well. Most Hernando County homeowners are in the habit of keeping an eye on area home values. But especially for anyone considering buying or selling this summer, estimating their home’s value is one of the first items on the agenda.

To get you started, there are a couple of different methods to help establish a ballpark estimate of what your home may currently be worth. Certainly the quickest and easiest tool is the calculator on Zillow’s website, at http://www.zillow.com/profile/tinafingerman/.  This free online calculator uses accumulated public record data joined with other factors to produce an estimate of home values. All you need to do is enter your address and wait for the magic.

I do have to put in a word of caution, though. Like any computer program, it’s fast and precise –but also maddeningly capable of disregarding what we humans think of as ‘common sense.’ So, while it is fun and interesting to get this kind of readout, it’s at best a ballpark estimate (and at worst, downright misleading!).

There are many other sites boasting similar tools — variations of the same idea and pulling from slightly different data sets — but the approach they use to calculate home values stays the pretty much the same. You only need to enter your address and there you go: instant estimate.

While these calculators are great at aggregating data, nothing replaces human input.  Real estate is, after all, the very definition of a Hernando County occurrence, so if you’re looking for more than an estimate, it’s time to call the pros in.

When an experienced agent (someone like yours truly) creates their professional estimate, it not only takes into account the trends for properties closest to yours, but also incorporates real life features — such as the curb appeal your home and garden offers right now. The better kept your property is at any given time, the greater its estimated value should be. An agent can also suggest the small changes that work best to enhance a property’s value.

If you have been considering selling a home and are curious about today’s Hernando County home values, call me anytime for a complimentary (and 100% human) consultation!

    A mortgage is a loan on a house since most peolpe don’t have enough cash to buy a home.Cash Advance means several things but it is borrowing. It used to always mean you went to your employer and said you were having financial problems and wanted an advance on your wages. This was usually before your first payday because you might have to work several weeks to get your first check or worse work a few days one pay period then wait until payday to get a tiny amount then wait another pay check to get a first full check. So after working a week or two and still having a week or more to wait you ask for an advance and they deduct it from your first paycheck.Then credit cards started loaning money at high rates on your credit cards and calling it cash advance.Now payday lenders are calling it cash advances and they charge you a high fee to have you give them a post dated check.
