What is my home worth in Santa Cruz? Determining your home's value & Selling your Home

WHAT IS MY HOME WORTH IN SANTA CRUZ?  DETERMINING YOUR HOME'S VALUE & SELLING YOUR HOME

To determine your home's value in Santa Cruz County one must take in a variety of considerations.  In a beach community like Santa Cruz, Rio del Mar, Aptos, Seacliff, Capitola . . . proximity to the beach and presence of an ocean view drastically affect a property's value.  There can be a 1 million dollar plus difference between an ocean front home and a home one block away from it.  An ocean view can really up your home's value but it is just one of many factors to consider in finding your home's value.  Find out What Your Home is Worth

Another factor to consider in the size of your home and the size of your lot (or the usable land on your property).  Some properties in the Santa Cruz Mountain areas may have many acres but if there is not much usable land then the value might not be as high.  Having a one acre property in town will be worth much more than a 1 acre property in the mountains.

The age or construction quality is taken into consideration when determining your home's value.  If your home is older but built with quality and well kept up it can be worth as much as a newer home.  What is my Home Worth?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Of course there is the old saying "location, location, location" when it comes to determining your home's value.  Certain neighborhoods or areas will draw a much higher price.  Established neighborhoods on the Upper Westside of Santa Cruz, Pasatiempo, Seascape, Capitola (like Depot Hill or the Jewell Box) have higher home values on average than other parts of Santa Cruz County.  Even if you have a below average quality home in these areas it can sell for more than a nice home in another neighborhood.

When you are getting ready to sell your home do your best to highlight your home's best features to get the most value out of your home.  Go here for Tips for Preparing Your Home for Sale
