Amanda, great questions.  The CMA is a comparable with other homes in the area, the MAPS 290 scores the home itself.  There are 8 different areas of the home that is scored, these are tangible.  You do an actual walk thru visually inspecting the home as to its readiness to sell.  You will notice things the home owner does not.  Some improvements are simple and little cost.  One older home I scored did not have electrical plugs in the bathroom, where would I plug in my dryer?  I may not have noticed this if it was not on the list to score.  The score is written similar to a credit score.  It calculates the 8 areas differently.  The summary page is calculated automatically and that is what you make notes on and give to the homeowner.  I am giving some RE office's a free copy for a year, all they have to do is email support@whatsmyhomescore.com with their information.  I can do this because I believe in the product and I know how much help this is for the homeowner.

On the website is a FREE tab.  Buyers are loving the game board.  It guides them step by step thru the buying process up until closing.  I designed it and you are more than welcomed to customize it with your information and give freely, just as I do.  Check back often for more items, I try to update and add weekly.  Thank you for your interest.

David, there is a You Tube icon at the top of the website.  Click to view the tutorial, it explains a lot.  It is only 5 minutes, but the program is very simple to use.  Thank you again.

Travis, I totally understand the money.  Realtors are dimed and dollared constantly.  But with all those fees, this one gets you in the door.  It sets you apart from other realtors.  You offer a free service of valuable information to offer to the home owner.   Last year I actually heard a realtor tell a home owner that there was a 90% chance he could sell their home.  Really?  Where did you come up with that number?  Now, you can show them how you came up with their number.  Thank you.

Sally and David, thank you for your comments.  I feel this program is already successful even tho it doesn't go live until tomorrow.  I have had so much positive feed back from the home owners and their referrals.  When you go to an Expired, the home owner usually picks the realtor they like.  We all offer the same thing, until now.  Enjoy!

Janice thank you for your comment, yes I agree.  The more information we can give the home owner and better inform them, the easier it is for everyone involved.  Especially if this is conveyed before they list  Thanks for checking us out.  Gwen

I checked it out, and I think the board game is a great idea - but they didn't take it far enough. What happened to the appraisal - one of the biggest die rolls of all? It's obviously not geared for all states - the attorney section before buyer & seller sign doesn't happen in California.

The feng-shui would definitely not be something I'd use "as-is". Seriously, MOVE my fountain to the opposite side of my door? It's a major element of my landscaping, and I can see it from my office window. On the right side, it would be crammed into a corner on my pavers (not to mention that it's hard-wired, and turns on & off with a switch that's in my office). Lavender bedrooms make me gag......

Thank you Ingrid, you are right, the game board is not designed for every state.  In NY appriaisal is done last, while other states the appraisal is first even before listing.  It is to be used as a guide and customized by each realtor.  Just a starting template basically for some.  But I really enjoyed creating it.  Reminded me of board games when I was young.  Thanks again, great comments.
