Appraising versus Selling Real Estate are two different processes with different objectives.  An appraisal is to determine and detail valuation for the purposes of a loan, while a Realtor® must highlight the features and benefits to enhance the value of the property.  The appraisers work must be capable of being defended with current statistical proof of value.  Appraisers and Realtors® may have differing goals, but they are seeing the same house.  The value of any house is the house in comparison to other houses in the area.  Market value is that value that the house is likely to be purchased for at that time--the last 3 months is best.

Interested in Buying or Selling a condo in the South End of Boston? No need to try to time the market, its happening! For small to mid sized condos (700-850 sq.ft) 14 units are currently active yet 8 already have contracts written and pending one or more contingencies. Inventory is NOT keeping up with demand resulting multiple offers. With as much as half the units being put under agreement in a just a few days buyers need to be aware that its not always the almighty $ that wins out in a multiple bid situation. Terms, conditions and a willingess to close on the Seller's schedule may win out.  Good luck this spring. South End Boston Homes & Condos For Sale
