Find out what your home is worth

This post on the FREAKONOMICS BLOG, pointed me to a really cool site,  Type in any address or zip code and it will show you the house on a satellite picture along with the house’s estimated value.  In addition you can search for recent comparable sales – sales of recent houses with similar specifications in the same neighborhood along with their sale price!   

You have got to try this website out – find out your home’s value.  Realtors are going to have to work hard to show their value!

Two notes:

  • Not all areas are covered yet.  I found my home in Colorado but I couldn’t find any data for home values  in South Dakota.
  • It actually showed our home in the right spot.  Google and Yahoo maps usually think our house is half way down the block from where it really is.
