Home Value Reports from Places like Zillow and Trulia less than Accurate

“CoreLogic, which has developed a variety of valuation models it sells to the lending industry, investors and others, cautions that the popular sites that provide free estimates to consumers have their limitations.” - Pete Carey, San Jose Mercury News, January 9, 2014

Websites like Zillow and Trulia, while useful to real estate homeowners and consumers, have home valuation services that are less than accurate (See article below from The Island Packet). If you wish to get an accurate value of your home, Hilton Head Island Real Estate Brokers can provide, with no strings attached, a professionally prepared CMA. CMA's are what we real estate professionals call a Comparative Home Analysis.

A CMA is used to help evaluate how your home will fare against the competition. It takes a look at both homes that are currently listed and those recently sold. The purpose is to find the highest price that will still make the home competitive on the open market. Steeped in both local knowledge and over 35 year of local real estate expertise, Hilton Head Island Real Estate Brokers is here to help put you in a perfect place.

Hilton Head Island Real Estate Brokers creates a fact-based portrait of the home that uses data from our local MLS, such as number of bedrooms and baths, approximate square footage, size of major rooms, age of the home, property taxes, and desirable amenities such as fireplaces and pools. These criteria are often overlooked by sites like Zillow and Trulia.

To request an accurate and professionally prepared Comparative Market Analysis, feel free to fill out our form by clicking here, or even call us today at 843-785-8006.
