When Is It The Best Time To Sell Palos Verdes Home?
KNOWLEDGE IS POWER
If you’re getting close to making the decision to sell your Palos Verdes home, then you’re certainly going to be tempted to find out, on line, without the pressure of some real estate agent breathing over your shoulder. But when you rely on a computer algorithm to tell you what your home is worth (that sounds strange right?) then make sure you check at least 3 computer systems so you get some checks and balances. Why? Because a computer algorithm can not nuance VIEW – MICRO LOCATION – CONDITION – or LOT UTILITY very well at all.
It’s why some studies have shown that algorithms can be off by as much as 40%! Here’s a list of tools on my website:
Corefact (the only interactive system YOU control) Play the video on this site
HomeValueMetrics (you will be amazed as to how much more information you will get over real estate agents and thereby giving you power) Play the video on this site
MarketSnapshot (less of a home value algorithm, more of a market knowledge power base to help you out negotiate buyers) Play the video here
