There's a ton of data available all over the internet for consumers to check home price, valuations, recent sales, market trends, and more. So I have to add mine too (of course) even though I am not, in general, a big fan of Automated Valuation Models (AVM) such as Zillow. Or anyone else's for that matter. Here's why.
All of these AVMs use algorithms based on house size, lot size, square feet, age, bedrooms, bathrooms and other features available in the public (tax) records. The problem is that the computer crunching the numbers has not been in the house. So, there's just no way to know whether the roof needs replacing or the kitchen has been updated, or whether there is mold and extensive termite damage or brand new floors.
What these reports do provide is a good starting point for the discussion as to the value of any specific property and some over view of the market and trends based on actual sales and other activity.
