To obtain a true home value (and one that a lender will require if you get a mortgage to buy a home), you need to pay a state licensed and certified appraiser that is selected by your lender to write a certified appraisal of the valuation. However, a good tool to use to determine value when you are shopping for a home is provided by Realtor.com. For that reason and because I think the most valuable information about homes is listed on that site, I link properties I list on my website at https://kellypropertyexpert.com directly to the listing as it is posted on Realtor.com.

If you are interested in how I value a home when I list one for sale, please ask. That is another topic.

“MECKLENBURG, Tenn. – Low rates of household formation since the Great Recession have caused 5.7 million “missing” households, a new Zillow analysis finds. These missing households represent people who historically would have moved into their own home but have been unable or unwilling to do so, and should keep housing demand high for many years to come as the market catches up.”
