Episode #17: Comps 101 - How to Easily Find Comparables for Your Home

Comparables or “comps”: Comps are sales records of recently sold homes. Appraisers and real estate agents use them to get the most accurate estimate possible of a home’s value.

HOW TO FIND COMPS:

  1. Find homes that are just sold or recently sold on Zillow or Realtor.com - First look for the last 180 days - if you can find 3-4 similar homes that is great. If there aren’t great comps then change it to 360 days
