The True Value of Your Home

November 25, 2016 by · Leave a Comment 

Lots of people these days rely on “real estate” websites to determine the value of their home. The trouble is most of these sites don’t have access to the data they need to give you a true assessment. In fact, most of them are not even in the real estate business. They are just aggregators of information that they scrape from a variety of sources. Real estate is definitely local and values can change even from street to street for a wide variety of factors. Only those real estate professionals that are in the market daily serving buyers and sellers can give you the most accurate and timely information about the value of your home. That is our training. Don’t rely on data aggregators who aren’t even in the real estate business to “price” your most valuable asset. You won’t get the best information.

Each month, West Austin Properties, publishes a real estate market report detailing the sales statistics around the Austin area. We deliver the statistics by price band and zip code so that you can see what’s happening now in your neighborhood and across the city. We also have prior reports posted so you can spot the trends as we see them and review the historical data about the best time to buy and sell.
