One of the first things most sellers think about when deciding to list their home for sale is the price at which they can list their home. The best way to come up with this price is to take a look at recent sales data, but the problem with most resources available to the public is their limited access to actual MLS sales data.
Even companies as notable as Zillow hint that their system is flawed. They just released a prize of $1 million to any person or team who can improve their algorithm to make their price estimates more accurate.
Many MLS systems keep their sales data private, especially those that are in non disclosure states like Texas. Non disclosure states do not require transaction sales prices to be made available to the public. Other non disclosure states are Alaska, Idaho, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri (some counties), Montana, New Mexico, North Dakota, Utah, and Wyoming.
The solution to this problem is to get a broker price opinion. As a broker we have access to actual sales data and can get extremely targeted down to homes that are similar in size, features, and close to yours. At CrestEdge Real Estate, we take it a step farther and provide not only a price opinion but also:
