Although a reputable real estate agent is the most appropriate person to provide you with unbiased advice regarding the sale of your property and its true value in the market place, it always pays to be informed. Do some research for yourself, looking at similar properties to your own, be that online, in the newspaper or in the shop-front windows of the numerous real estate agents. Look for properties that are similar to your own, matching location, size and features. This process will give you a realistic view of the market and the potential value of the property.
