Signs Your Home Estimate is Wrong

June 15, 2020  /  Appraisal  /  Marti Reeder

Whether or not you’re thinking of selling your home, having an accurate market analysis from a ‘human’  expert regularly is a better alternative than wondering if the online estimate is accurate. You may have questions about the value of your home. For many homeowners, the home is often the greatest financial (and emotional) investment they own! So you may find yourself in one of these scenarios: “I think my home’s estimate on websites like Zillow is less than it’s actually worth.”  “My agent tells me my home is worth X, but the online estimate’s value is higher.”  “My recent refinance bank appraisal was lower than   I expected.” All these scenarios essentially ask the same question: “Is an online estimate trustworthy?”
