Pitfall of an On-line Market Analysis

To be of any value a Market Analysis must be accurate. Think about it - the only way to fairly evaluate your home is to have it looked at by someone familiar with
real estate and your area's constantly changing market conditions.

An on-line market analysis is generated by reviewing basic information.  You input your address, number of bedrooms and baths, square footage, garage and other general details. This then initiates a search of local assessor records and provides a report of recent property sales in your market area. Your "market analysis" is based on a general idea of neighborhood values that may include low priced foreclosures that are in very poor condition. This information has no practical value.

Who Benefits from the On-line Service
Your contact information will be forwarded to a Realtor who pays a subscription fee to receive the names of everyone who submits information within a given zip code area. The subscribing Realtor now has your name as a "lead" to call.  You are not protected by the Do-Not-Call list, because you initiated the contact.

The subscribing Realtor will try to "convert" you into listing your home with him or her. This is fine, if you like the Realtor and the company her or she works for. But, what if you don't? Selling your home is serious business and shouldn't be put into the hands of just anyone.
