I offer a 'Instant Home Valuation' on my web site. Basically it gives an estimate on your property based on information the user provided plus information from public records like tax assessment, lot size, and gross living area. Its just like the 'Zestimate' offered on Zillow.
This tool can be dead on or it can be way off. I pride myself on my home valuations being a former appraiser and preparer of Broker Price Opinions for lenders.
With the wide variety of house styles, year builts, condition, etc in Bergen County, not all homes in your neighborhood are comparable to your home.
1. Instant Valuation offered on my web site.
1. An Online, manually estimate
2. In-person inspection & Current Market Analysis of your home's value.
With my online, manually estimate, I ask all the right questions from you about your home to get a good idea of your home's condition, characteristics, and amenities. I research your location through Google Earth & Street View. I manually & meticulously research the comparables through the New Jersey Multiple Listing Service. This is the local MLS for Bergen County and provides the most accurate and latest sales data. I also utilize public tax records to aid in the research. This method is good for a ballpark figure.
With the in-person inspection, I can get a more accurate view of your home. I can first hand observe the condition, floor plan, and setting. Like I do with the online estimate, I research the comparables and tax records. I then create a Current Market Analysis Report so you can personally see what comparables and data I utilized to value your home.
No 'Zestimate' or online valuation can match the accuracy of these type of valuations I provide.
