Zillow Advice: Pricing - what is the estimated value of my home http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/what-is-the-estimated-value-of-my-home/427925/ Zillow Advice | Zillow Real Estate CMA is a good start. You ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/what-is-the-estimated-value-of-my-home/427925/ CMA is a good start. You may want to find a agent who are willing to look at the your home by comparing the market data in various perspective. I just looked at west Chicago today. I found that she does better in some areas compared to many other towns. I work with investors a lot and I usually will do a personal analysis by looking at the hard data with my own system. Cos I believe value estimation is an Art rather than a science.

It will cost you about $300. <br/><br/>The next best thing is to get a <a href="http://www.zillow.com/directory/real-estate-agents/">Realtor</a> to do a CMA (Competitive Market Analysis) for you. It will cost you nothing, and a Realtor is happy to provide the info for you in hopes to get a listing at some point in the future.&nbsp;<br/><br/>About 90% of FSBOs (For Sale By Owner) end up listing the property with a Realtor. <a href="http://www.zillow.com/directory/real-estate-agents/">Realtors</a> are responsible for over 90% of all sales.

Seem Zillow has no lot size information, claim your home on Zillow and edit the missing detail which&nbsp;helps your buyers, who may&nbsp;want to know&nbsp;more&nbsp;details on your property.<br/><br/><a href="http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/28W410-Mack-Rd-West-Chicago-IL-60185/4423518_zpid/" title=" (Full address: http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/28W410-Mack-Rd-West-Chicago-IL-60185/4423518_zpid/)">http://www.zillow.com/hom ... 518_zpid/</a><br/><br/>Also the following link has the similar figure to your Zestimate, it doesn't&nbsp;estimate your home value but it helps you to do the math on your own home valuation.<br/><br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://homesand.net/QuickComps.aspx?28+w+410+mack+rd&amp;citystatezip=il?Map=1" title=" (Full address: http://homesand.net/QuickComps.aspx?28+w+410+mack+rd&amp;citystatezip=il?Map=1)">http://homesand.net/Quick ... =il?Map=1</a> Sat, 07 Jan 2012 15:54:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/what-is-the-estimated-value-of-my-home/427925/ 2012-01-07T15:54:00Z Zestimates give you only ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/what-is-the-estimated-value-of-my-home/427925/ Zestimates give you only a range.

Not a solicitation of another Realtor's listing. -John Sat, 07 Jan 2012 13:06:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/what-is-the-estimated-value-of-my-home/427925/ 2012-01-07T13:06:00Z It sounds like your home ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/what-is-the-estimated-value-of-my-home/427925/ It sounds like your home is listed for sale. Do you have a Realtor? If so, ask your <a href="http://www.zillow.com/directory/real-estate-agents/">Realtor</a>. There is no website that can provide an accurate enough analysis to advise you in such an important matter.&nbsp; Even a paid appraisal may not reflect true Market Value the way an experienced Realtor's Market Anaylsis will.<br/><br/>Good Luck!
