Why's your est. for our home $200K below market? (Trulia:$525K, Realtor: $500K) Why can't I edit our home details ? Box saying unexpected error always

Unexpected error box saying please try later always pops up when I try to edit our home details! I have tried to complete the edit over the period of several days. This is unacceptable. A $200,000 difference in home value is a huge error on Homes' part, and for the edit tool to continuously not be working is extremely poor. Please get back to me via email or fix this problem so I can edit our home's details, which are wrong and, I'm assuming, are affecting its value on your site.

These automated home valuation models are inaccurate. Zillow even states their closest estimate is still 8% off. Most are 16% off. What ANY of these sites have for an estimate will be far off from what buyers are willing to pay in an appreciating market.

Hi Emily, Many automated values for homes can be off by quite a bit, they go off public information and tax records, that is why if you want a true look at your home value, I would ask you to reach out to a Realtor and have them do a customized Comparative Market Evaluation (CMA) for your home. This is the best way to really get a good idea of your homes value and compare it to other homes on the market now or recently sold homes in your local market area, or you could have an appraiser go out. Hope this Helps

Hi, Emily, I don't think this forum is monitored regularly by "homes" for customer service issues. Try the "Q&A" link at the top and "Contact Homes com," there's also a link to "customer support." Real estate professionals give very little weight to automated home values published on the web. It sounds very frustrating, though, to try and update your home information and not being able to access the pages due to errors. I would recommend going directly to the source of the wrong information, such as county tax records, and correcting them there if possible. Many websites get their information from public records and even if you update it on the website, it could be overwritten again when the database is refreshed from the source. Hope this is helpful!
