A website can’t determine the value of your Meridian Idaho Home
Real Estate Portals
People love to visit real estate portals.
What’s not to love?
Some people (like you?) spend hours viewing tantalizing online “eye candy”, looking at dream homes and trying to figure out what their own home is worth.
Along with embellished photos and glowing descriptions, some of those portals offer estimates of value.
Those estimates of value are calculated by Automated Valuation Methods (aka AVM), generated by computer algorithms.
What could possibly go wrong with this concept?
Computerized Pricing Issues
In Idaho, those real estate portals rely upon assessor’s data, which can be as much as a year old.
If you’re a seller, how will you feel when you rely upon an inaccurate automated value to establish your asking price?
A computer sitting in a far away server farm will never understand:
- The location of the home.
- The neighborhood and surroundings.
- The condition of the home.
- Upgrades made to the home.
- Undisclosed needed repairs.
- The motivation of the seller.
- Local market conditions.
- Details of comparable sales.
