I agree with Eddie below. You want to contact a few Realtors. Have them come out to your place and draw you up a CMA. (comparitive market analysis) It doesnt cost you anything to get advice from them and this will give you a good idea of what your place is worth. If you are going to list with one of them, make sure you go with someone you like and feel comfortable with. I hope this helps!

The best way to go is ask your local realtor to give you a Market Analysis (this should be free).  It should consist of properties similar to yours that have sold in the last 45 days.  So if its a 3 bedroom brick house you dont want to compare it to a 2 bedroom frame house.  Make sure your Agent doesnt pick any properties that are farther than a mile away, the closer the better.

Hi together1-

Are you referring to the Zestimate value? If yes, just enter the address on the "find homes" tab and it will give you the home information with a Zestimate. You may also enter the city and state or the zip code of the area you want to search and just zoom in to see the home information and the Zestimate.

Additionally, not all homes on the website have a Zestimate. There are some properties that do not have Zestimate values because we do not have the home transaction history. This is possibly because the home is in a "non-disclosure" state (Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Montana, New Mexico, Texas, Utah, Wyoming) where transactions are not publicly reported.
 
If the home is not in those states, it might be that we have the tax assessed value and home information from local public records, but we do not have sales transactions from our data providers for the area.

Please note that the Zestimate is not the actual price and also not an appraisal. It is just a starting point in figuring out the true value of a house.

We do not offer the Zestimate as the basis of any specific real-estate-related financial transaction. It is still best if you will get an official appraisal that will include the specific improvements you made for your property.

For more information about Zestimates, you may refer to this thread: http://www.zillow.com/adv ... tion/891/

Depends what you mean by "value. Zillow can give you a rough estimate, and a range, an appraisal is what you need to get a refinance, a realtor can advise if you're looking to sell.
