What Is Your Colorado Springs Home Worth?

A lot of people in Colorado Springs have been selling their homes for great prices. When neighbors see a home across the street sell for a lot more money than they expected, this makes them wonder how much their own home might be worth.
So, what do people do to find their home's value? Unfortunately they go online and look at Zillow. I think that Zillow is a wonderful aggregate of a lot of real estate information, but you shouldn't trust what they tell you about your home's value.
Zillow uses old tax assessor records and other inaccurate and arbitrary records to gauge the value of your home. They don't know about the upgrades you've made or the repairs that you've done. Zillow is notoriously inaccurate when it comes to putting a price on your home.
If you want to pinpoint the value of your home, then you need to speak with a real estate agent such as myself. I can take real market data to give you an accurate estimate of your home's value.
