Value of my home

Answer

You will find that resources like Zillow typically produce the quickest, most limited analysis of your property for valuation.  There are several different approaches to effectively obtaining an accurate estimate of the value of your home.  If you are looking to gain an unbiased and accurate estimate of the value of your home, you can contact a local, licensed appraiser in your area. An appraisal is an estimate or opinion of value based on supportable evidence and approved methods.  Appraisers are independent professionals, trained to provide unbiased estimates of value in an impartial and objective manner. Appraising is a professional service performed for a fee.I am sure you have also heard about Competitive Market Analysis, commonly referred to as CMAs.  These are reports based on a variety of factors, usually prepared, free of charge, by a licensed real estate salesman or broker for their sellers and buyers.  CMAs differ from appraisals in the information used in their preparation.  Appraisals are based upon an analysis of proximal properties that have actually sold, while CMAs feature properties similar to the subject property in size, location, and amenities.  Competitive Market Analysis is based on recently closed properties, properties currently on the market (competition), and expired listings in the area (properties that did not sell).  Hope this info helps.
