Do You Need A Real Estate Review?

Text by Helen Adams Realty

Have you ever heard the term "real estate review"? If you're a homeowner, it's an important one to know. A real estate review is a comprehensive analysis of your home that gives you the knowledge to maintain, improve, and enjoy one of your largest investments - your home.

Just like your regular physical at the doctor, reviews with your financial advisor, and visits to the dentist, checking in to understand your real estate investment should be a recurring event. Whether you're staying or selling, a real estate review gives you insights into your home that can help you make smart decisions and save money. 

The most common cadence for a real estate review with your agent is once a year. It will take into account various factors, including your property's location, size, condition, comparable sales in the area, and current market trends. Here's what you can expect:

  • A walk-through of your home: Take the time to get your agent's expert eyes and opinions as you take a tour. Don't be afraid to ask about the dripping faucet, creaky floorboard, or a project you have in mind.
  • Insight into the market: Get the inside scoop on what other homes in the area have sold for recently and what that analysis means about your property. Discuss this along with current trends and expectations so you can evaluate your options.
  • Discuss your goals: Do you have a renovation in mind? Could you turn your property into a rental? Do you have enough equity to access a home equity line? Your agent can talk through all of this and more.
  • Get recommendations: It may be time to refinance, evaluate your insurance coverage, or consider tackling some repair projects. Putting off any of these can be costly in the long run. Your agent will have referrals for excellent vendors to help you no matter what you need.

A real estate review is not only an analysis; it's a gateway to financial empowerment and informed decision-making. Taking the time to check in on your home investment, orient your goals, and understand your options is vital to getting the most out of your home no matter what the future holds. Contact your Helen Adams Realty agent today or reach out and we'll happily recommend one based on your location and personal needs.
