It's so important to understand the market activity in the neighborhood where you are buying a home. Every local market is different. Checking recent sales activity will ensure you understand the real market values. Don't rely on online estimates. They can really lead you astray if you trust them on face value. Many of those estimates come from unchecked data sources and are not kept up-to-date in real time.

This is an area where you can heavily rely on the experience of your chosen real estate agent. Since they have access to the MLS (Multiple Listing Service – a system used by agents to house listing information) they will be up-to-date with the most recent home sales, homes available, homes under contract and any coming soon listings in your desired neighborhood.
