                                  Comparative Market Analysis
  CMA is an analysis used by real estate licensees to help sellers determine a proper listing
  price for their property
  CMA uses principal of substitution: a buyer should not pay more for a property than the price
  for an equally desirable substitute

                                CMA: Information Needed
A CMA analyzes price based on prices for properties that:
  have recently sold
     indication of market price
  are currently listed
     seller's competition
  have a recently expired listing
     losers that did not sell

                                         Sources of Comps
  MLS
  Broker's records
  County assessor's office
  Appraisers
  Title companies
                                            CMA Process
  Find properties similar to seller's property
      "comparables" or "comps"
  Make adjustments to sales price or listing price based upon differences between comp and
  seller's property
      For example: # of bedrooms, # of bathrooms, square footage, garages, fireplace,
      condition
      If comp has better feature, reduce price of comp to get subject property price
      If seller's property better, increase comp price

                                      Properties Recently Sold
Important information for analysis:
  original listing price
  number of days on market
  sales price

                                    Properties Currently Listed
Important information for analysis:
  original listing price
  number of days on market
       if longer than average, may indicate overpricing
  current listing price
                                     Expired Listing Properties
Important information for analysis:
  original listing price
  listing price adjustments
  number of days on market
  why property did not sell
       overpriced
       seller not motivated

       poor condition or location

                                         CMA Conclusions
Licensee should indicate a range of value for the seller's property
Seller should understand:
      the higher a property is priced above comparables, the less likely it will sell
      higher list prices lengthen time required to sell
      pricing the property competitively results in a quicker sale
                                 CMA: License Requirement
Real estate licensees can, in the normal course of business, prepare valuations without real
estate appraiser’s license
Must include statement:
   “As a real estate licensee, I am performing this valuation estimate in the ordinary course
   of business as a real estate broker or salesperson, and this valuation estimate cannot be
   used in a business lending decision.”

                                Estimated Seller's Proceeds
Used to show seller the net dollar amount the seller will receive from the sale of the property:
   Sales price, minus costs of sale and amount of any liens on the property
Better to estimate closing costs slightly on the high side and use a range of price.
