I think the best way to check property values, short of hiring an expensive appraisal, is to do a comparative sales analysis. A Realtor you are on good terms with should be willing to do this for you. They will pull comparative sales figures off the MLS. If a realtor won’t help you for free, you can do it yourself! Log onto knowx.com and pay them 10 bucks to pull the sales figures on 5 similer properties in the area. They will charge $1 for each additional property, but 5 is really all you need. I’ve used their service and it’s very comprehensive. Worth every penny.
