Thinking of selling your home and wondering what it’s worth?  You may want to be careful about the home value estimates you see online because many are either far above or far below the true market value. 

Boca Raton home sellers who set their expectations on inaccurately overestimated home values may fall victim to overpricing their homes for sale which will ultimately lead to frustration because they don't sell.  When a home is overpriced, it will languish on the market for months, causing multiple price reductions as they "chase the market" and most likely result in a lower sale price than if they had priced it right from the beginning.
