If you are planning to sell your home, it is useful to know what prices  in the neighborhood have homes already sold for. Also, if you are remodeling, it's advantageous to know what neighborhood homes are worth so that you don't over-improve for the area. Finding out the selling price of neighborhood homes is quite easy. Basically, all you need to do is find your county appraiser's website.

Zillow will only give you an estimate based on public records. A CMA is a comparative market analysis that a Realtor CAN do for you. A CMA would give you a good idea what your home is worth based on the current active, sold and expired properties in your area. However, the best way to determine the value of your home is to hire a licensed appraiser.

Really? Agents on Zillow offer to do them on a regular basis. Maybe we're not talking about the same thing. I'm talking about this CMA "By going to sold property records, the real estate professional selects recently sold properties that are similar to the subject property and in the same area. By comparing these properties, and adjusting for feature differences, an estimate of value is made for the subject property." Do you call it something else in your area?

Zillow doesn't give appraisals or give market values, but they do have Zestimate number. You can go here enter the address in the Find Homes box and hit the blue GO button. If Zillow has one for the house, a map will come up for the area. Click on the address box to get to the home page. You can also claim your house here for even more access to your house information. It is quick and easy. You can also look at creating an owners estimate to include features that Zillow does not have listed like remodels, additions, improvements etc. too here. Hope the links are helpful.

You don't. Zillow provides a computer generated guesstimate (I call it a Zuesstimate) of your homes worth. Their are often too many variables to take into account when valuing a property.While ZIllow is a good tool for snapshot values of a property, they shouldn't be relied on for pricing a home for sale.
