Do you live in the Pikes Peak Region? Do you ever wonder exactly what your home is worth?
When you hire a REALTOR® to assess the value of your home you can be sure to have the most accurate assessment of what you may be able to sell your home for. Additionally, there is plenty of information out there to help you find what out what your home is worth, however, it can risky to rely solely on computer-generated results. For example, some tools used to asses your home value might only rely on existing data such as Zillow's Zestimate Home Value Estimator. Often times the Zestimate is a great place to start your home value assessment, however, in other cases, the Zestimate has been known to retrieve results that may be from many years prior which can cause many problems for buyers, sellers and brokers. Imagine you see the value of your home is 600K in the Zestimate but in reality, the home is worth more than 100K lower somewhere around 500K. By hiring a REALTOR® who has been specifically trained to asses the price of your home and include a variety of factors that a computer simply can not generate.
