Internet Display Options and VOW's

Real Estate Agent with Remax Advantage Plus

I'm looking for feedback from Realtors that have had success, or no success using automated valuation of the property listing or links to an automated valuation that may be displayed next to the listing. Some use statistical calculations to estimate values of property based on the data from public records or the MLS. Some permits the users to display comments or reviews of the listing or by a hyperlink. I have heard good and bad, let me know what works best for you.

While I can appreciate the service that these kinds of sites are ATTEMPTING to provide for consumers, the job is just TOO DAUNTING. The real estate market changes every single day. Houses are sold to real Buyers every day and those sold homes impact the valuations of Real Estate professionals and Appraisers. Keeping up with values in specific locations based on GENERAL algorithms is really rather absurd when you think about it. The fact is that -until they create a computer like the ones that play chess and Jeopardy for valuations- I don't think there will be anything out there we can count on.
