It is important to understand the most used valuation system in getting home values from the internet which is known as AVM (Automated Valuation Models); these values come from taking your basic criteria mainly Beds/Baths/and sometimes square footage for a zip code to come up with a value!

This can be a great system for getting an idea of what your home may be worth but to get the true value of your home it is a good idea to call a RealtorĀ® so that they can take all the criteria and amenities your individual house has to offer to be able to compute an accurate value by using information from our local Multiple Listing Service and public records.
So if you are thinking of selling your home and you get a computer generated value that doesn't really fit with what you feel the value of your home is, it would be best for you to get a CMA (comparative market analysis) from a local RealtorĀ® so that you can have accurate information for the pricing of your home.
