When you are initially considering selling a home in Jacksonville, the first thing you need to know is how much your home is worth so that you can set a reasonable asking price. But, how does a home seller determine the actual worth of their home? With a comprehensive home evaluation.
The answer is quite simple. The most reliable and accurate way to determine the worth of a home is to get a home evaluation. At Your Home Sold Realty – The Phil Aitken Home Team in Jacksonville, we offer home sellers like you a FREE and instant professional evaluation of your home. We place you under no obligation for the home evaluation results, and we guarantee you the accuracy of our results.
What Goes Into the Home Evaluation Process?
When you use our FREE professional evaluation system, all you need to do is provide us with your address and a brief description of the home. Using that information, our system will perform a thorough comparative market analysis as it searches for similar homes that have been listed or recently sold in the area. It will also take into account the specifics of your home.
Once the results of the professional evaluation have been returned, we can use that market data to determine an appropriate selling price for your home, if you were to place it on the real estate market.
Is the Zillow Zestimate Accurate for Determining a Home’s Worth?
In short, no. Real estate agents around the country have determined that the Zillow Zestimates are highly inaccurate and outdated. If you are trying to figure out exactly how much your home is worth in Jacksonville, the Zillow result will typically be 10-20 percent off with their calculations.
For homes that have already been listed on the MLS, the Zestimate can be more accurate in specific areas and locations, but mostly because the price has already been listed as well. Off-market homes are less likely to have an accurate Zestimate.
One major downfall of using Zillow is the fact that it doesn’t consider upgrades, structural issues, furnished vs. unfurnished homes, number of updates, and new features such as appliances, floors, or paint. Without these points, the algorithm is sure to be inaccurate and will not reflect the actual value of your home.
If you were to only use the Zillow estimate (or any other online home evaluation tool), the results would not be accurate. You would likely end up setting an asking price which is far too low for the actual market value of your home.
