How do I find out the value of my home?

Answer

You can find more information about the value of your home through a real estate agent or an appraiser. Real estate agents and appraisers use the same approach in figuring out value. It depends on why you need to know the value, if you need it for refinancing then I would talk to a lender about having the home appraised, if you're looking to sell your home then I would recommend getting in touch with the real estate agent. The Zillow Zestimate isn't always accurate, it's usually ~20% higher or lower than the actual value. Good luck. Let me know if I can help any further.
