Frequently Asked Questions

An AVM is a computer-generated algorithm that uses historic, public sales data and trends to estimate a home's value.


Typically, national AVMs are not a good representation of a home's actual value and have a large margin of error. The values generated by AVMs are based on automated computer modeling from public records and may not represent the true value of the home as they cannot take into account the nuances of our local market.


For the most accurate estimate, contact us to request a Comparable Market Analysis (CMA). This report is prepared personally by one of our agents and gives you a clear understanding of competing properties, market trends, and recent sales in your area.
