Why should I pay for an appraisal when I can get the value of my home for free from Zillow or other websites? You can reach out to any number of places to get an opinion of what your home is worth. Zillow states that their estimated market value uses a proprietary formula and is not an appraisal. Zillow states on their website they are a starting point in determining a home’s value. The Zestimate is calculated from public and user-submitted data.
An appraiser is licensed or certified and extensively trained to be an expert in your market. They will physically inspect your home and then follow a standardized set of practices, analysis, and methodology that results in a professional opinion of value unbiased and well supported by the market. When you need to know the value of your home an appraisal is a must.
