"What's My Car's Value and ...My House Please?"
Q: Any recommendations for the best website to look for sold homes in order to pull comps for ourselves?
Question asked and answered on DCUrbanmom.com
A: You know car companies have this done correctly!
If you have a 2012 Honda Accord for sale, they will tell you what an average car with average miles costs?...and that is just the beginning of an estimated value...
Then they ask questions to adjust this value..
How many miles?
Any premium wheels?
size of engine?
Automatic or manual?
Any Extras? CD Player, leather seats...etc
They even ask for your area...zip code, for a more accurate report
What about houses?
They ask you for your address...
Here's your value!

Why do it yourself? is just a meaningless number!
Why would you allow the final SOLD PRICE on a similar home in your neighborhood , that has outdated wood paneling, or a house filled with pet odors belonging to a divorcing couple that must sell right away...
Why would you use those comparables to determine how much your house should sell for?
That is what a zestimate is ...
or what any CMA pulled from the Internet does for you..
They bunch all the houses together...good or bad and then they give you an estimate that could be up to 40% OFF!
So if the car business had estimates...
Your Honda Accord's value could be $10,000 or $6,000
Take your pick!
