What’s the Best Way To Find My Home’s Value?

Before you put your Candlewood Lake home up for sale, you need to know how much the market value of your home is.

This is a crucial step in the home selling process, especially if you are planning to move to a different state for career advancement and want to sell your home in the shortest amount of time.

Many homeowners just like you have come across the problem of coming up with a price to list their property for.

How exactly would you know the worth of your Candlewood Lake home?

It’s a bit puzzling and stressful at the same time to think about how much you would sell your home for, right?

Today’s technology has developed a way for homesellers like you to find out their home values in just a few minutes.

You can find this service for free on some of the big real estate sites.

A lot of home sellers use these computer programs because,  aside from the fact that they are free, they are easy to access and use, convenient, and quick!

But, you’ll notice that I didn’t mention accurate and reliable in the above description of these home value estimators. 🙂

As one of the top real estate experts in Connecticut and having had experience with the homes here, I can honestly say that home value estimators are not good for your Candlewood Lake home!

Here’s why:

  • Online home value estimators are not accurate.

While there is a lot to be said about the convenience that they provide, home value estimators still have their drawbacks. One of them is that they are not able to come up with an accurate result of your home’s value.

These computer programs use data gathered from the public, and they also gather up what you tax collector has  assessed for the homes in the area, to come up with a rough estimate of how much your home for sale in Candlewood is worth.

Having data ready to be pulled up at any moment is the reason why they can work so fast…and that’s a good thing!


But imagine if something were to happen to the data, say it wasn’t updated or worse, it wasn’t complete, what would happen then?

If this happens, there is a very big chance that your Candlewood lake home for sale is not going to get the price it deserves!

Remember, home value estimators can give you a price for your home, but that there is still a difference between knowing the price of your home and knowing the worth of your Candlewood Lake home for sale.

  • Home value estimators cannot see your home.

If you want to sell your Candlewood Lake home, first you have to take into consideration everything in it and about it.

And when I say everything, I mean EVERYTHING.

If you’ve installed a new deck, this has to be considered.

If you’ve made updates on your kitchen area, this also has to be considered.

With this in mind, how do you think online home value estimators can come up with a good price for your Candlewood Lake home for sale if they can’t even see your house?

  • Online home value estimators don’t know what your improvements are.

Computers can’t track what recent upgrades you have made to your Candlewood Lake home for sale. Whether kitchen, bathroom, or master

bedroom upgrades, they won’t be acknowledged by these home value estimators.

Because of this, home value estimators prove to be highly inaccurate with their disregard for home improvements.

These are some of  the reasons why I believe online estimators can’t provide reliable results.
