In the business of real estate, we get asked all the time to evaluate client's homes when they're thinking about listing. For us this process involves viewing a home, going back to the office and pulling as many "comps" or comparables that we can find that are similar to the home. This is how we create your Comparative Market Evaluation. In a smaller town like Port Alberni the comps aren't always in the same neighborhood, but more importantly we review and compare the number of bedrooms, bathrooms, square feet, and features...The most important thing to look at as a Seller, is not so much what is currently listed on the market, but what's actually been selling, and for how much. 
This is also helpful for Buyers considering offers. Have your Realtor (r) ( a memeber of the Alberni HOME Team, of course), pull comps for you, so you can make an educated decision! Your Realtor has access to these magical "comps" so we can help you!  Just another reason to use a licesed Realtor(r) to buy or sell in Alberni Valley!
