How do you estimate home value?

A home value estimator is a tool that helps you figure out how much your home is worth. We calculate this by using information about your property — like its location, size, and features, and a few more important factors.

Similar recently sold homes

How much comparable houses in your neighborhood have sold for can give you a better idea of what your own home is worth, since the sale prices of these "comps" reflect what people are willing to pay for in the current market.

Days on market

A home that’s been on the market for a long time may be perceived as less desirable by potential buyers. That means lower demand for the home, which can ultimately lead to a lower sale price. A property that has been on the market for a long time may indicate that the seller is motivated to sell, and this could give a buyer leverage to negotiate a lower price.

Here’s how long it takes to sell a house

Market conditions

When the real estate market is hot, with high demand for homes and few properties available, your home may be worth more. On the other hand, if the market is slow, with fewer buyers and more homes on the market, your home may be worth less. The supply of homes and demand for them heavily influences the worth of your home.

Frequently Asked Questions

How accurate are Orchard home estimates?
Orchard valuations are within 4.7% of the final sale price half the time. In 2022, that’s 30% more accurate than leading estimates. Orchard uses a combination of human and computer intelligence to derive the best estimate of your home.

Our automated valuation model (AVM) considers recently sold homes, tax data, as well as geographic data, and more, all of which is assessed and tweaked by the Orchard’s pricing and real estate teams to make sure you’re getting the best value estimate.
When and why do home values change?
Home values can fluctuate for many reasons, including changes in the local real estate market and the economy at-large. (For example, a strong economy, with low unemployment and high consumer confidence, may lead to an increase in home values, while a weak economy could lead to a decrease in home values.)

While you won’t have control over market conditions, which have an outsize impact on your home value, there are some things that you can leverage. Your home’s condition and features also affect how much it’s worth. If you make significant renovations or upgrades, property value may increase. On the other hand, if your home is poorly maintained or in need of significant repairs, you’ll see its value decrease.
Why is knowing my home value important?
Real estate professionals and homeowners often use home value estimators to get a general idea of a property's value. Knowing your home's value can help you make informed decisions about setting a realistic list price and negotiating with buyers when selling your home. 

But understanding how much your house is worth is useful even if you’re not looking to sell, too, because it gives you a better understanding of your financial situation: The appraised value of your home affects how much equity you have, which you’ll want to know if you need to borrow against the value of your home or refinance your mortgage loan. Most of the time getting an estimate can be straightforward, and free, so there’s nothing to lose. Find out what your home is worth.
