    Should you rely on online home value estimators?

    Online Home Value Estimators 

    Have you ever been on those sites that can give you a value of what your homes worth in just minutes? You add your address and maybe an email addresses and magically the computer spits out your homes value based on an algorithm.

    The thing to remember here is that unless that special algorithms has been in and around your house looking at all the upgrades, transformations and even problem areas…you really should only take that value with a grain of salt. It just like getting an appraisal done on your home. The appraiser has to literally get boots on ground, walk in and around the house to determine what the home is actually worth in order to give you an accurate price point. 

    Of course, my recommendation would be to always enlist the help of a professional real estate agent to help determine you homes worth. They will use their expertise along with comparable homes in the area to give the best and most accurate statistics on how the market is doing and the impacts it will have on pricing your home.
