Are you hoping to fill out a form here and get an instant idea of what your Barrington home is worth? Sorry to disappoint. Of course if you still want an instant valuation, one that could make you super happy, super mad, depressed or gleeful, I wrote about places you can get one here. Feel free to use them or any of the others you most likely know about. They may be on target, they may not.
Instant Home Valuations Come With a Lot of Caveats.
Just in case you never read the fine print, or understand how they work. A computer dives deep into the data it’s storing to find homes like yours, adds them up, divides it up and bingo, there’s your answer. It’s so simple you’ll never need a Realtor! The other company’s computer does the same, but guess what it selects different sales. Rinse and repeat.
This is all good and dandy but now you’ve got 3 answers what do you do with the information? Trust it? Run with it? Challenge it? How are you going to challenge it?
Instant Home Valuations Can be Useful
If selling is not your motive maybe three different answers are just what you need for a ballpark idea. That’s why I wrote the previous post, to help you if you wish to remain anonymous, if you just have a need for a general idea and don’t want to talk with one of us sales persons.
Instant home valuations can not do one thing. They cannot look at your property and determine what value you may have in addition to price. What does that mean? Remind me to let you know when we start marketing your property for sale.
