What Does Average Price per Square Footage Report Do?

  •  It helps establish the market price for an average home.
  • It helps determine if there is any change in property value for a specific area in a specific price range.

How to Use Average Price per Square Footage Report?

  • Use the highest and lowest monthly average price per square foot on the chart to establish the most marketable price range in a specific area.
  • If the home has a larger than normal lot, a special amenity, or is located in an area of higher social demand, the home price must be adjusted upward.
  • Refer to For Sale vs. Sold Report for the number of properties sold per month. If there are less than five properties sold per month for a specific price range, the average price per square foot might be skewed and is not as useful. In this case, an average of the fifteen months or more figures should be used in setting the price.
