With other sites the estimate of your home’s value is based on public records, market conditions and any facts you’ve shared publicly. It is not an appraisal, and it should be used as a starting point. The offer you receive factors in layers of information including interior updates and neighborhood details (proximity to parks, water, highways, etc.). We also receive a market value estimate from a local broker and conduct an in-home evaluation. These extra steps help us arrive at an offer that’s as competitive as possible.
